Dr Gallagher takes the time to discuss my medical condition. He listens to mine and my wife’s concerns. He’s very professional as is his staff. Words cannot express my gratitude for all he has done for me. The best

Had to wait over an hour for my son to be seen, who is an active toddler. No small child should be kept waiting that long.

Dr. Gallagher is a patient (noun) professional. He saw me through a horrendous experience-skin graft-and pre and post op care. He and his staff were like cheer leaders for my wife (my caregiver) and for me. Now I am almost well. Thank you

My son suffered a 2nd degree burn and we saw Dr. Gallagher a few days later. He was SO nice and helpful - he and the entire staff put my 1-year-old at ease. Their care and advice was great and reassuring. I'm happy we don't have to go back but if we ever do we'll be glad to have Dr. Gallagher.

I am thankful for the treatment my daughter received. All the doctors including Dr Gallagher were excellent. It was good to see that they were focus on the patient. This also includes there nurses and staff. I would surely recommend Dr. Gallagher and the NYP Hearst Burn Center. Again thank you for all you do.

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!
