Had Dr. Galinat been available to the king’s men, they likely would have been able to put Humpty Dumpty back together again. If I were to need another shoulder repair, Dr. Galinat would certainly be my first choice for surgen.

Dr. Galinat was patient and helpful taking the time to make sure I fully understood my condition and the course of action to address it. He offered options and did not rush into any treatment plan. In fact he decided that a procedure was not warranted. If you are having shoulder challenges he is the first Dr. to call.

Dr. G was on call for my surgeon. He was no help. He would not listen and was quite arrogant....He may be a good surgeon but I would not use his service.

He redid a bicep tendonsis that according to my first surgeon wasn't medically necessary at all! I asked dr g if he knew an elbow dr; he said no! I researched and saw dr townesendwho is in same office practice! Dr g who I saw 20 times wrote a letter to dr spieker, saw him 200 times, Saying I have a mental condition that seeks attention and I'm faking my condition.die first b4 dr g

Arrogant and cavalier. Exam was rushed and he walked out while I was still trying to ask questions. Didn't care when I told him my shoulder pain was severe enough to be impacting my sleep every night. "Should get better in a month" Complete waste of my time- I would strongly recommend against going to Dr. Galinat.
