Will not be there when you need him!! Also watch out for the biologics he pushes you will end up with TB and never tell you how sick you can get like TB

. Don't expect to see the doctor unless you schedule a SPECIFIC VIST with him. Staff is good but none hold doctoral degree. Out of 4 appointments with the DOCTOR, only ONCE DID WE ACTUALLY SEE THE PHYSICIAN! This is your health. This is YOUR LIFE!

I like Dr.Galea and his Associates they are very helpful and always have time to answer answer any questions that I have about anything. My mom was a patient of Dr. Galea's also and he was a great doctor to her.
