July 06, 2014

Dr. Gleich is an excellent doctor. He always takes the time to explain things to me and I have a great deal of confidence in his care.

July 03, 2014

Dr. Gleich and his resident even gave me a Pub Med article (I'm a stem cell lab manager) that addressed my situation....data!

June 16, 2014

if he cant tell you about test results while your there and goes off onto something else then I'm not to interested in seeing him

May 06, 2014

Long wait in exam room was only negative

April 26, 2014

The best care I have ever received.

April 21, 2014

I have referred several people to the clinic and they all are happy with their care too.

April 21, 2014

Dr Gleich was very knowledgeable and explained everything in a way that I could understand.

March 31, 2014

Dr. was very patient and explained everything and I could tell he really was trying to help me.

March 17, 2014

This was perhaps the single best visit with a physician I have ever had. I felt like Dr. Gleich really wanted to help me figure out what is going on with my allergies. He spent a significant amount of time with me and really listened!!

February 04, 2014

Dr. Gleich provided care light years beyond my expectation. Since I hadn't gotten the correct questionnaire beforehand, he thoroughly went over it during the appointment, finding exactly what care I needed and ordering it done. I was tested on the spot. When he got the results, he discussed them with me, then called a colleague on the east coast, who was the foremost authority on my case, to consult. After talking with me further, he prescribed an epi-pen and showed me exactly how to use it, then explained how I could induce my own immunotherapy naturally at home. Dr. Gleich is thorough, methodical and personable. I am very grateful for the care given by him and his able staff.

December 16, 2013

Dr Gleich immediately recognized the level of extreme pain I was experiencing and responded with an extensive treatment plan that addressed a variety of issues that several other doctors were not able to diagnose.

November 25, 2013

Dr. Gleich is an example for other physicians to look to in quality care, service and knowledge. He shows he cares for the patient and he is thorough in his evaluation.

November 11, 2013

I can only re-Interate my experience with Dr. Gleisch nothing but high praise

October 23, 2013

I love Dr Gleich. He is an amazingly intelligent and caring doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.

October 14, 2013

This is the one of a few times I feel good about a doctor and his staff. Thanks to everyone.

September 24, 2013

I did not see Dr. Gleich, a PA, or an NP at this visit so I am uncertain who to evaluate

September 09, 2013

Due to the wait time, I would not recommend this provider to anyone, nor will I be returning

August 27, 2013

Love Dr. Gleich! What an awesome guy!

August 13, 2013

Dr. Gleich is super smart and has a gentle nature that was amazing. He made me feel relaxed and that he was gonna be able to help me the second I met him!

July 09, 2013

good

July 08, 2013

Dr. Gleich always shows interest in all my medical problems and how they are interrelated. I don't feel like it's just this piece or that piece that he's interested in and I go to someone else to address other problems. He's made it easier for me to get in for a culture when I have an infection instead of waiting for an appointment that may be a week away. He and his staff work so well together. And he has a sense of humor.

June 17, 2013

He is the first doctor I felt was actually listening to me

June 12, 2013

good

May 21, 2013

good

May 14, 2013

I've seen many doctors about the hives I've suffered with for many months. Dr. Gleich has BY FAR given me the most hope. I find him to be the best the doctor I have ever seen. I have never had a doctor call me back in such a timely manner, or really call me back at all. The fact that he spent well over 20 mins on the phone with me is just amazing ... that sealed the deal for me that he's the best doctor on the earth!

May 06, 2013

Dr. Gleich is great. Love his experience, knowledge, recognition, thoroughness. Glad I could see him.

May 01, 2013

Dr. Gliech was very thourgh in his exame. HE listened to me and when the first test gave unexpected results he was egar to investigate futher instead of dismissing my problems.

April 29, 2013

VERY VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND IN DEPTH WITH HIS CONCERN AND CARE

April 22, 2013

If you have a complex immunological /allergy problem, you want to see Dr. Gleich.

April 16, 2013

Dr. Gelich has done more for my health problems that any Doctor I have seen. He is concerned and I have complete confidence in him.

April 08, 2013

I was surprised at the concern Dr. Gleich showed and the time he took to explain what he thinks may be going on and his plan to "get to the underlying" medical issues causing my condition. I expected him to be like so many of the other super-specialists I've seen who want to do a cursory exam, run a few tests and then tell me the abnormal results just don't seem to fit a category and then dismiss it all as just being "my normal." Dr. Gleich was thorough, professional and concerned. IMPRESSIVE! I would recommend him to ANYONE.

April 03, 2013

Very good

March 14, 2013

Always good. Dr always shows genuine concern & assistance for health issues & how they might be resolved.

March 07, 2013

I have never had a doctor spend so much time evaluating my problems.

March 06, 2013

Great care!

February 19, 2013

Extremely good physician, took the time to ask me questions. He really seemed to care about the patient (me). He was not rushed and I really appreciated that.

January 16, 2013

Dr Gleich is the best doctor I have ever had. He is very caring and smart!

January 11, 2013

good

December 31, 2012

Excellent clinic at all levels. I will recommend even if the allergy shots dont work!

October 29, 2012

I have great confidence in Dr. Gleich. I have had bad doctors, and doctors who were not very vigorous in there pursuing a medical problem, but Dr. Gleich is VERY thorough, doesn't make snap judgments, is not afraid to consult on a problem with a colleague (I know docs who are)--he has already found a health problem that other doctors have missed.

October 10, 2012

Excellent care.

October 10, 2012

Dr. Gleich is an amazing doctor--he is also my husband's doctor. So maybe I'm a bit prejudiced, but I think Gleich is the best.

September 27, 2012

Dr. Gleich has been instrumental in finding out and getting to the bottom of my 3 year health situation.

September 25, 2012

It was very helpful and very much a pleasure to meet with Dr. Gleich.

September 12, 2012

Excellent care!

August 01, 2012

Dr. Gliche was amazing and had a way with words that really made it easy for me to understand. I can clearly see he has a passion for what he does! The nicest doctor ever and very warm!!!

August 01, 2012

Dr. Gleich is a very smart individual and has always given me undivided attention when I see him. I do not see him every time I come to the clinic, as the nurse administers my shots. However, when I have had a concern, Dr. Gleich is very thorough and attentive and will find a solution.

June 22, 2012

I'm very happy with the care that I am receiving from Dr. Gleich. I feel like I'm finally getting some answers to my unsolved health issues.

June 11, 2012

Doctor Gleich is the BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!

May 04, 2012

Dr. G is wonderful, there are not enough providers like him, he truly has my best in mind.

April 28, 2012

After meeting the doctor, I am very confident that he will help establish a diagnosis. and hopefully, a cure for issues that I have been dealing with for nearly 2 years. He took the time to go over my past records and other physicians that I have seen and test results, etc.

April 20, 2012

The Physisians even recommended where I could obtain the medications at the least amount of cost.

April 06, 2012

very good

April 06, 2012

i had to remind him of thing he was going to look at and he still didnt look in my nose to check for efection. he was being rusted

March 22, 2012

Excellent. Very professional and knowledgable.

March 09, 2012

I wasn't sure that the provider understood what my problem was and he talked over me continually.

March 08, 2012

He talked to ALexis as an adult in language that she could understand. He made sure she understood what was going on and how we could work together as a team to control this problem until she became ready to do allergy shots.

March 01, 2012

I was really impressed with Dr. Gleich's communication skills. He explained everything that he was doing as he was doing it, so I didn't sit there wondering. He was also able to explain everything very clearly in language that I could understand.

February 17, 2012

I love that he didn't act like I was crazy about my symptoms especially when I told him that antihistamines don't fix everything. Other doctors I've seen act like I don't know what my body responds to and what it doesn't, and that they know how my body responds better than me. The Doctor that saw me however, respected me and trusted how I described my past experiences, he didn't treat me like I was nuts and tell me to continue treatments that were not working. He was willing to try a new plan of action. He acted like he actually wanted to help me stay out of the hospital, like he cared more about my health than a pocket book.

February 16, 2012

again, awesome and funny. He made me feel relaxed and went well out of his way to find a somewhat unusual allery test for ferrets. He gave me different options for treatment and I left with the sense that the treatment plan we decided on could really improve my quality of life.

February 10, 2012

Doctor seemed tentative to information I have gathered over the years about my difficulties and how they seem to interrelate. Basically I am still confused and not sure he wants to or views me as being somewhat unique when the other doctos have said I was and sent me to him.

February 10, 2012

Dr. Gleich was really excellent. Made sure he had answered all of my questions before I left. One of the best doctors I have seen!

February 03, 2012

Unfortunately, this doctor failed to look at the notes I had prepared. He also disregarded much of what I said, ignoring my answers or just waving them off as if my observations about my body were of no concern or were not valid. His testing repeated testing I had had fairly recently and about which I was able to tell him the results. I was extremely disappointed and offended by his manner

February 03, 2012

very satisfied customer...

January 20, 2012

Dr. Gleich was great. He really took the time to go over all of my questions, and gave me a a lot of helpful information. I rarely feel comfortable at a doctor's appointment, but he made me feel at ease.

January 19, 2012

We love Dr. Gleich and feel so good about what he says. My daughters symptoms are not always the same triggers and he is able to explain what's happening and why so my 12 year old can understand it. He also helps her to understand the importance of her taking responsibility and knowing how she is feeling and the importance of taking action early. I have felt from the beginning blessed to be in his care and his nurses are awesome too!

Academic Bio

Dr. Gerald Gleich is a Professor of Medicine and Professor of Dermatology. Before joining the faculty at the University of Utah School of Medicine, Dr. Gleich was a faculty member at the Mayo Medical School for 36 years. In his tenure there, he was honored with the Distinguished Investigator for 13 years, Professor of Immunology and Medicine, and Chairman of the Department of Immunology.

Dr. Gleich has had a life-long professional commitment to understanding the eosinophil with a focus on its distinctive granules. He and his colleagues have isolated, characterized, identified the cDNAs and the genes and established assays for measurement and localization of all of the principal granule proteins. These efforts lead to the recognition that eosinophil degranulation with release of cytotoxic and cytostimulatory cationic proteins into tissues is characteristic of eosinophil-associated diseases and to recognition of several novel syndromes.

Dr. Gleich also serves on many Medical Advisory Boards and Study Selections. He is currently a member and Chair of the Data and Safety Monitoring Board, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, President of the International Eosinophil Society, and member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Dr. Gleich has contributed over 600 articles to the scientific literature.

As an internationally recognized allergy expert, Dr. Gleich has received numerous awards and honors, including the Landmark in Allergy Award, Fellowship Award of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Honorable Membership in the Pharmacia Allergy Research Foundation.
