I have been under Dr. Galuardi's care for 2.5 years now. Dr. G performed two facet blocks, which has eliminated my neck pain. I continue to see him for pain management. Having been diagnosed 35 years ago with a vestibular disorder, I talked with Dr. G about this debilitating condition. He has helped me tremendously with medical treatment. as well as diagnosing me with "vestibular migraines." JHH, however, wanted me to participate in a research study, involving a cochlear implant. They offered no treatment to try and help the disorder, just research. Dr. Galuardi listens, he cares, and he offers the best treatment program available to help his patients function to their best ability. I highly recommend Dr. Galuardi, who has been a true Godsend to me.

If your searching for help please read.. I have Lupus, RA, neuropathy of the right side, migraines, anxiety, and depression. After 8 yrs with a Dr in CA. And no opioids I had to relocate to Delaware. I saw 7 Drs that wanted me on Fentanyl or Oxy. They did not consider my success with a sublingual if Bup.. I had Drs leave the room like I was a cop when I said no to fentanyl. I felt hopeless until I found Dr Galuardi. He appreciated that I had understanding of my disease. He listened and was proactive in procuring other Drs I needed. He is not a pill mill but he will prescribe what you need for ur condition. If you need narcotic medication and a Dr to monitor and safely prescribe and is sincere and honest he is the one. He will not over prescribe and his integrity will give you hope. I know how hard it is to change Drs and how scary so I hope this review helps.

I have been under Dr. Galuardi' care 2 years this July. I have severe degenerative arthritis of the spine, with a compromised C1C2, along with the 12th cranial nerve. I was desperate for relief. Two doctors failed to help me. A friend referred me to Dr. Galuardi, who had helped him immensely. In my 75 years I can count on one hand the doctors who share his professionalism, talent, skill and caring! Thank you Dr Galuardi for the relief you have been able to give me. I am truly grateful to my friend who recommended you to me! I in turn have recommended Dr. Galuardi to many of my friends who suffer with spinal pain. Jackie Bates April 9, 2020

I was in such pain when I went into his office. After two times for injections the pain is gone. I was so scared. He is very reassuring. The pain was due tp spinal stenosis. I would definitely use him again. The office people are kind and caring too. Mollie Rinaldi

The only thing he could do was prescribe opioids. When the State of Maryland stepped in and cut everyone back he was useless. In eight years he never did x-rays or MRI’s on my knees or lower back. When I first started there he had a fat girl who was to lazy to get up off her but to open the sliding window. She sat there and reached up with a back scratcher. If you needed her help you were in trouble. Go to Salisbury and get a real pain Doc you won’t regret it .

Ocean City, Md – Apr 21, 2018
I have been a patient of Dr. Galuardi for 2-1/2 years. He gave me a serious exam on my first visit. I find him to be thorough, compassionate, easy to talk to & very gifted at explaining my condition & even more gifted at treating my chronic pain. I've had both knees, both hips, & both shoulders replaced, & surgery for diverticulosis (all 7 surgeries within a 5 year period). I have arthritis every place it can be. I am 79 years old, & feel so lucky to have this wonderful doctor treating me.

Dr. Galuardi is a wonderful Doctor. I have been a patient of his for a few years and my experiences with him have always been wonderful and pleasant. He has always treated me with respect and makes sure my health and treatment needs are met. I would recommend him highly. He had a wonderful staff but I must say his biggest asset to his office is Amy. Amy is absolutely wonderful and always goes above and beyond to help me with any issues I may be having. Always very friendly and professional.
