Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
