What People Say About Dr. Barry Galitzer, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr G performed , during first visit, 5 biopsies and told me after receiving the reports that I needed four surgeries and one biopsy to be enlarged. In addition that I needed two special, expensive, Blue Light treatment. I had reservations about the extensiveness of his recommendations and sought a second opinion. I was advised by another Dermotologist that in their opinion there should have only been one biopsy and at the most one surgery or if I wished I could use a recommended anti cancer ointment. I have chosen not to return to Dr G.

The staff treat me like a client at a posh spa. They are kind, courteous, professional and caring. Dr Galitzer gave me the most thorough skin exam I have ever had and Mary, his PA was just as thorough and kind. I would cheerfully recommend this practice to everyone.
