Excellent surgeon, very successful. For level neck fusions at age 72. Office staff needs training on friendliness.. Otherwise care is great.

Excellent opinion if Dr Gallati so far.. my husband has surgery in the 25th. Our previous 2 visits have been wonderful. He explains everything very clearly and doesn't jump at surgical interventions. Tiffany is great but the ladies at the checkout area look miserable!

I am very thankful Dr. Gallati was the one to remove my husband's brain tumor last week. He made us feel he had a plan, and knew how to achieve his goal. He was very polite and explained to us before and after surgery what he would do and what to expect. Thank you so, so much!

Dr. Gallati is very helpful. The front office staff, however, needs ALOT of work. The women are rude and hateful. When you speak to them they act like it is awful that you are inter-acting with them. I understand working with the public is sometimes not easy, but it is after all your job!!!!! Smile, be friendly, be helpful, and not rude. These patients and their insurance company are the reason you get your paycheck!!! Good customer service goes a long way!!!!!!

Had a recent consultation with this "MD". Is rushed and very pushy, talks over patient, does not appear to listen or have empathy,, reads paperwork as speaking with Patient, unprepared. Majorly, minimized CT/ MRI results, does not appear to know how to handle basic film results, or come up with successful plan of action for successful resolution. **Constantly talks over patient through the entire exam. Needs class in dealing with people!

My fiance' fell from a 30ft building and Dr. Gallati performed an emergency surgery that saved his life. He spoke with us before he did the surgery and after; explaining everything in great detail and making sure we understood. He even told us the downfalls of having the surgery. Dr. Gallati is amazing at what he does and he is a very thoughtful caring surgeon. He checked on my fiance' daily while he stayed at UT hospital during both surgeries. I highly recommend him!
