    Dr Gluck is an excellent doctor and educator. He is my guide to my genetic kidney disease. He has always looked out for me and been there to listen compassionately. I am lucky to be able to go to UCSF. Thank you for my care.

    Dr. Gluck is exceptional. His breadth and depth of knowledge and his application of his skills and experience to my healthcare are second to none. I am grateful for his care. He is like an indepth primary care giver. He does not limit himself to the stated clinic "nephrology" He takes a wholistic approach.

    Fellow could have been more informed on patient status ahead of time. I didn't mind updating her but was concerned it might take away from my time with attending (Dr Gluck).
