Dr. Galgon spent time needed to get to know me & understand my pain and my desire to avoid surgery for as long as possible. I am very pleased with her professional expertise & bedside manner. We have worked out a good care plan. I am her "poster-child" for why keeping fit really matters (and works!) and she is my "poster doctor" that re-inforced and supports my fitness goals. Thanks.

doctor does not have enough time to take care of all my needs in 15 minute appointment. She is great at what she does, I always leave feeling I needed more time with her.

I did not get too much information but it was ok since I believe better information will be given once I did the tests I was referred to during this visit. Also I was advised that I can contact her at any time through MyChart if I have any questions.

Difficulties with explaining arise because nerve/spinal cord damage is complex and difficult to explain.

I will be having both my husband and daughter be treated by Dr Galgon once my treatment is over because of the progress and healing that has occurred during her treatments and care.
