    Dr. Galler is a BRILLIANT surgeon. I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at the age of 44. I was referred to Dr. Galler by my GI, and I couldn't be more thankful. Dr. Galler performed my low anterior resection in November 2018 and he also performed my ileostomy reversal in March 2019. I am thrilled to report that I am cancer-free, thanks to the stellar work of this amazing surgeon. He is personable, professional, and he keeps a sense of humor. I absolutely recommend him without reservation.

    My husband had Dr Galler for a Colonoscopy which ended up to be a little more complicated then expected not only did he fix the problem but he was very educational and compassionate with both my husband and myself. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is not sure who they should see

    Dr. Galler saw me as patient admitted via emergency room. He was not only able to correct a hernia that was causing a blockage, but he fixed my stoma (I have an ileostomy) that has been giving me trouble for 6 years. Now my peristomal skin has never looked so good and I am getting more wear time out of each ostomy appliance. Dr. Galler is personable and professional, and overall a great doctor! I'm so glad my emergency visit led me to him!

    He has taken care of my family and has always answered questions without hesitation. If he didn't know why he stated it without trying to come up with an answer thst might not be correct.
