Saved my Life
So lucky to have found Tx Cardiac Arrhythmia group and Dr. Gallinghouse. He thoroughly explained treatment options and treated me with respect. He performed a cardiac ablation and throughout the procedure, kept my family reassured and updated. Follow up from his nurse practitioner has been excellent.

Dr Gallinghouse is amazing! He is a great human being and an expert in EP. He answered all my questions and then answered questions I didn't even know I had. He was very, very kind and I felt like I was talking with a good friend, not some detached, robot-like specialist as I have see before in my life. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gallinghouse to ANYONE with EP cardiac issues. I put my life in his hands and he not only respected me but left me with that feeling that I have the best medical care possible with him. If for some reason Dr. Gallinghouse relocated to some far off locale like Australia, I'd be buying tickets there yearly just to see him- THAT'S HOW GREAT HE IS! I've had some stellar specialists over the years and Dr. Gallinghouse is certainly in the top five of the best ever! I cannot recommend him enough! Ten out of ten stars to Dr. Gallinghouse and his staff.

Dr Gallinghouse is amazing; he's brilliant and also down-to-Earth. And his humanity and kindness mean so much because having a cardiac arrhythmia is scary. You feel immediate confidence when you meet Dr Gallinghouse... I'm an experienced RN, and I have worked with many physicians in acute care. I can discern the difference between a good doctor and a not-so-good one. Dr Gallinghouse is a great one.

Dr. Gallinghouse was thorough with his exam and assessment of my arrhythmia. He explained in detail the nature of my particular arrhythmia, various management and treatment options and what to expect over time. His kind and straightforward manner made it easy to ask questions and discuss any fears about having the condition. After much thought I decided to have the ablation recommended to me. During the preoperative assessments, the procedure itself and the hospital stay Dr. Gallinghouse, his staff and the hospital staff were all proficient, professional, kind and very helpful. They all were very informative about the details of what to expect after discharge from the hospital. Dr. Gallinghouse saw me a few times during my short stay and also communicated with my family after my procedure. His office has printed information about the condition for new patients and thorough postoperative printed information for patient reference. I feel I am in good hands for my arrhythmia condition.
