Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gallant "I value each patient I see and try to educate, advise and empathize. I don't think most people really like to see the doctor - and I don't blame them. Getting medical care can be confusing, contradictory, expensive and frustrating.  I try to do everything I can to respect my patient's time and to be part of the solution. I live by the golden rule and feel honored to be part of my patient's lives."

Patient Comments (4)
albuquerque, nm |
Dr. Gallant is a brilliant and caring doctor. He was previously very good. Since he became an administrator, he has become nearly impossible to see for an appointment and he has failed to refer me on to a specialist when needed. It feels like my healthcare no longer matters to him or his practice.

I've been seeing Dr. Gallant for five years now and he's one of the best physicians I've had. I always get the feeling that he's looking out for me and that he truly cares about my health and the care that I receive.

Dr. Gallant has been my PCP for 12 years. He is attentive (does not focus on the computer like other doctors) and spends sufficient time to get to know you and then observe for changes in emotional and physical presentation. He outlines options and provides needed information in clear, understandable terms, does not preach or direct decisions. Allows the patient to make informed, reasonable decisions about health care, medications, etc. Very satisfied with him, and his nurse Jeannie!
in Albuquerque, NM |
Dr Gallant was the first doctor I had been to in over 20 years. He diagnosed high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol. He prescribed medicine and behavioral changes that have allowed me to get my levels into the normal range. I find him to be extremely personable; not a behavior of many physicians. He listens and shares his thoughts on medical issues without lecturing.
