I am one lucky woman. No I didn't hit the lottery. Far more important and life changing was when I found an incredible surgeon who performed a serious surgery on me last month. Let me explain... Knowing I would need an experienced colorectal surgeon within a few weeks time I reached out to friends and professionals for a recommendation. I hit the jackpot when 2 recommended Dr. Gallina. I will be forever grateful for the care he gave me before, during and after the surgery. He is a fabulous, experienced surgeon with excellent bedside manner. He is down to earth and understands the anxiety his patients feel. He was very thorough in explaining my case and answered all my questions. I have already recommended a number of people to this wonderful surgeon!

Had a wonderful 1st consultation. Although we have yet to determine my condition he spent an exorbitant amount of time to discuss what I may have. Wrote an order for radiological testing without hesitation to help get to the bottom of my condition. My wife accompanied me as well. She enjoyed his demeanor and honesty as well. I'll be back.....to see my favorable Dr. Gumba!!!

I recently had my colostomy reversed by Dr. Gallina in August. He did an outstanding job, is extremely easy to talk to & just an all around nice & comforting Doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. Explained everything that might or could happen & put me at ease. Great bedside manner, even came in to hospital on the weekend. Really glad he did my surgery, thank you

Dr. Gallina performed colon surgery on my 86 year old mother. He is one of the most personable, caring, informed, outstanding doctors I have ever met. Do not hesitate to go see him. My mother is doing fantastic, 6 weeks post op.
