Patient Comments (1)
in New Milford, CT |
Dr. Galin is a fantastic cardiologist, and a fantastic person. He is one of the most friendly, kind doctors that I have ever encountered. He saw me in my room at Danbury hospital, after I had 4 stents inserted in my right heart artery. He put me totally at ease. On follow up at his office a week later, he was super nice, super personable, and assured me that I would be perfectly kind. A true gentleman, and super knowledeable Doctor!
