I trust and have complete confidence in Dr. Gallagher. He always explains things in layman's terms and draws pictures if necessary so I understand. He has a great bedside manner and is a great surgeon. He took me on as a patient at the spur of the moment after a fall resulted in a broken wrist performing surgery three days later. He continues to follow up with ongoing care until I am completely healed and no longer having issues.
