Be cautious if deciding to go to Doctor Galdi’s office – he is a great Doctor but if you need to reach his office for anything say maybe a follow up question after an operation you can’t. It's impossible to reach Doctor Galdi's office staff to cancel or make an appointment. Too bad Doctor Galdi does not have time to read his reviews on this subject as he probably has no idea what his patients are treated to by the administerial staff in trying to get info or follow-up’s or appointments.

Came into find out what was wrong with my knee and immediately from entering the office it was a really pleasant experience. Helpful staff and a very clean office environment. The doctor was very friendly and in a matter of minutes he was able to at least give me some type of possibility to my injury. Answered all my questions. The staff helped me out with what I need to do next in the process, so overall a very pleasant experience!

Dr Balazs Galdi is one of the best doctors I have seen in a long time. He is extremely courteous, accessible and thorough with exemplary chair side manners. Most importantly, he is very responsive and empathetic. If you have a shoulder or issue, this is definitely the doctor to see.

My sons has been under the continued care of Dr Galdi for an elbow injury and could't be happier or more impressed with the care he has received thus far from Dr Galdi and his entire staff. From the start of the appointment to the exit the level of caring and respect has been top notch and beyond the level i have experienced at any other office. Dr Gladi not only has a tremendous bed side manner he takes the time needed to know the patient, how the injury happened and not rush you out the door.

First contacting his office, I knew I making the right choice. The staff was very polite and thorough to make the initial visit as simple as possible. After meeting Dr. Galdi, I knew I definitely made the right choice. After consult and then review of MRI we scheduled the surgery. It was a successful surgery, I actually recovered extremely quickly and regained full function of my knee. Now I'm preparing for shoulder surgery. You can't ask for a better doctor. Polite, professional he has it all.

So I was in a really bad car accident in which I receive multiple injuries. The major ones where a full dislocation of my knee (4 torn ligaments) and dislocated shoulder (ac joint) and he fixed me back up to normal. I would highly recommend him, thanks to him I can walk again and be me again.

I saw the doctor once and was asked to get documentation on my shoulder. I have called several times and have yet to get in touch with anyone to schedule a second appointment or to find out what documents were needed. This isn't good for a practice to do. Because of his failures to answer my calls, I now have to apply for disability, due to unresolved pain.
