What People Say About Dr. James Gallagher, MD

He was professional but straightforward which I liked. Dr. Gallagher called for a second expert opinion to verify his diagnosis and to put my mind more at ease for the long run. The decision to treat my burns conservatively makes me trust his opinion more not less.

My mom was recently in Dc. Gallaghers care. My mom was treated with the utmost care and respect. The doctors and nurses were patient and kind. Everything was explained thouroughly. They made my mom feel super comfortable at times she didn’t feel so comfortable. They have an amazing team working there!

Dr. Gallagher is an ideal doctor. The entire check in process very fast and efficient. The intake was done by an Assistant Doctor. Afterwards, Dr Gallagher came to make his diagnosis and treatment plan. He assured me I was healing very well despite my concern. Dr. Gallagher has a very pleasant disposition which put his patients at ease. I highly recommend him and his staff.

The staff and Dr. Gallagher are excellent in what they do. My two year old daughter suffered a second degree burn. The kind of care and concern they showed during our first visit exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much.

Thanks to Dr. Gallagher evaluation of burn injuries that I suffered late last August 2017 I avoided A possible infection that might’ve cost me my legs or my life. I had seen in emergency room surgeon for days prior to seeing Dr. Gallagher. That surgeon did not recognize how serious and life-threatening were the burns that I have suffered. I had suspected that a second opinion was important to me. Dr. Gallagher provided that opinion. He evaluated me and admitted me to the hospital right away.
