No, I would not recommend Dr. Galarnyk to my family or friends. My experience with him and his rude/unintelligent office staff was horrible.

I saw Galarnyk for over two years and it was a terrible experience.After seeing his credentials I sought his expertise due to my mental and physical state I had been in.I paid out of pocket, and spent thousands for his help and I was never given a chance to explain who I was and what is going on.I strongly believe as a patient you have the right to SPEAK because that is why we see psychiatrists!This is not how he works.You write 3 things to talk about and then an hour of rants of politics and metaphors that hold zero correlation to your issue, how is that help?I even brought my family and even they all told me to stay away from him.I dreaded seeing him so much but I still tried to give him a chance to communicate but it was always the same.Also if you are on medication that you need to take, be very careful with him, he does whatever is in his best interests, not you.I could have died a few times and he did not care, what psychiatrist acts like this?? Extremely unprofessional.Terrible

Dr. Galarnyk is an exceptional psychiatrist. He is kind, caring, dedicated, knowledgeable, intelligent, professional, patient, respectful, experienced, and even makes clever jokes. He spends time with his patients. He is highly skilled in various methods of therapy. I think he is the best psychiatrist in the Coachella Valley. Carol and Karen are very nice. They always try to meet your scheduling needs.

My last visit with Dr. G was more political rant on his part than pain mgmt. Carol is awesome, but Dr. G's wife, Karen, works part-time in the office and is absolutely horrid. She actually laughed at me when I said I didn't have a credit card to pay off my account. After over a decade as a patient, she has refused to schedule an appointment without payment in full even when I've always paid in the past. What kind of doctor allows his wife to put his patients health in jeopardy over money?
