Absolutely fantastic bedside manner . Very informative and thouroughly professional with an awesome personality and sense of humor . Felt very comfortable one of the kindest coolest Doctors I've ever met .

Dr. Edward Galen is responsible for my husband's death. His ego and unwillingness to listen to what was actuality happening in my husband's case, caused my husband to get sepsis--twice--due to a gallbladder that was literally rotting in his body. This man should not only lose his license to practice medicine; he should be in prison for murder.
