“I really enjoy getting to know my patients and building rapport with them”
In addition to basic primary care, Dr. Glick likes to provide complex care management to get people feeling better, whenever possible, so they can return to doing the activities they enjoy.

Dr. Emily Glick shunned the lure of specialty medicine while in residency because she prefers the continuity of care she offers patients as an internist and the different aspects of internal medicine, such as rheumatology, endocrinology, nephrology and cardiology. “I didn’t want to narrow myself to any particular direction. I wanted to get a whole cross section of the different processes that go on in the human body.”
As such, she likes to apply complex physiology and pathophysiology to solve a problem to make a person feel better, as much as possible. “It might be something like getting someone who has chronic kidney disease or heart failure to the point where their their energy or breathing is a little better, so they can do the things they want to do. Maybe be out in the garden or be with their grandchildren.”
Dr. Glick pursued a medical career because she has always enjoyed the life sciences and been intrigued with the workings of the human body, and she wanted to go into a field where she was directly working with and helping people.
She views her approach to working with patients as a partnership. “I don’t come from some authoritarian place of telling people what they should do; rather, we work together to find an approach that is best for the patient.”
And she enjoys helping patients navigate through both complex medical issues and healthcare systems. “I really do see myself as a guide who can help people discuss things with their specialists and make all aspects of their medical care more understandable and manageable.”
Dr. Glick enjoys spending time with her husband, family, friends and dogs. She also likes traveling, reading, music, comedy shows, and snorkeling.
