About Me

Care Philosophy

I'm an electrician for your heart. When your heart has an electrical malfunction, I correct it. The procedures I use are highly technical, but my priority is just to make your heart work the way it should. I'm not saying electrophysiology is simple. But I promise you'll understand what I'm doing and why.

I have been a patient at Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia for eight years. I am so glad I am in their outstanding care. Last year I had a cardiac ablation done by Dr. Gallinghouse. He is an amazing communicator as well as a great doctor. I cannot say enough good things about him and his team!

Dr. Gallinghouse is far and away the most caring and accessible physician I see. His "bedside manner" is superb, and he always has plenty of time to visit and listen to my thoughts (which I find to be a rare trait these days). I highly recommend him.
