Dr. Glover performed the first surgery I’ve ever had. I was extremely nervous and very scared to be put under. I must say Dr. Glover was very friendly yet professional. He helped calm my nerves. The surgery was a success. I would definitely recommend him. He’s a great doctor! – Google

My recovery time was fast and easy hardly needed any pain medications. My incisions are super small and healed beautifully. I’m so grateful to Dr. Glover and will recommend him to everyone. – Yelp
As a physician myself, I’m pretty picky about who will provide care for my family members. Dr. Glover is not only skillful at his job, but he has the best bedside manner of any surgeon I have ever met or worked with. He takes his time with his patients, educates his patients, and puts families at ease. I will always refer patients in need of a general surgeon to him. He could not have taken better care of my mother! – Yelp
