After loosing 45lbs, I felt my face was a little droopy. Dr. Gale gave me some filler for cheeks and I love it! I didn't want to have a plastic look nor look fake. He listened to my concerns and gave me the perfect amount of filler! I'm hooked for life!!

I was suffering with one sinus infection and bronchitis issues after another until Dr. Gale read my CT scan and diagnosed blocked sinuses and enlarged turbinates that were preventing proper drainage. I scheduled surgery and immediately felt better. It has been 7 months and I have not had sinus problems since! Thank you Dr. Gale!

Working with Dr Gale and his staff has been a wonderful experience. Every appointment was extremely informative and an answer to my prayers. After many years of nasal congestion and Dr's telling me that everything looks fine, Dr Gale gave me a long term solution and results. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
