Dr. Galpern is thoughtful, funny, and considerate. He treated my hand/wrist after a bad fall. He was able to get me to a healthy state without surgery but with a cast instead. His office team is extremely nice and easy to work with. I had no problems with scheduling appointments and the office generally runs on time. I highly recommend that if you need a hand doctor, see D. G!

First time meeting with Dr. Galpern. He evaluated my finger and gave me multiple options on treatment. He recommended non-invasive treatment. This made me feel good. I will be out of town when it will be time for re-evaluation. He wasn't pushing me to come back to be seen. He even offered to meet me out of town, as we'll be in the same area at the time to re-evaluate. I would recommend Dr. Galpern 100%

Dr. Galpern and his staff were extremely easy to work with. We met Dr. Galpern in the ER and immediately felt comfortable with him. He answered all our questions and made sure we were comfortable with surgery and the immediate recovery plan. It was nice to have someone you knew you could trust guide you through the surgical process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, and everyone!

Dr. Galpern was very informative at every visit. He also walked me through every step and procedure. I had no insurance so i was self pay but he didn't make me feel like he wasn't doing procedures because of money. Dr. Galpern was very easy to talk to and his Nurse assistant Katie was great at every visit. She has a very gentle hand and keep me informed. They are an awesome team.
