Dr. Gallagher is a fantastic doctor. He is great at listening to your symptoms and makes sure to fully understand what you are saying by using active listening. I have found him to be knowledgeable on a wide variety of medications and their side effects. This is not a doctor that is seems to be swayed by drug companies or their representatives, like others I have seen in the past.

My experience with Dr. Gallagher was not good. He spends very little time evaluating your issues and is quick to write prescriptions and not afraid to over-medicate Also, he doesn’t remember your sessions from one to the next even though he has your file and could prepare before you arrive for a session. Most of my short sessions focused on going back through his notes, which often had mistakes. There should be a six-month exam for someone practicing at his age. I don't think he would pass

He is a good listener. He doesn't judge and he does a very good job of validating. He understands my culture and he is good at understanding family systems

This doctor is a crook and should have his license to practice taken away. He gives out pills to patients causing them to OD multiple times after being informed not to by caring family members.
