    Dr. Gallina is a brilliant surgeon & she is kind & caring. She performed 5 surgeries (in one day) on my foot. Other doctors said it was a lost cause because the damage to the entire foot toes, arch, joints (due to a deformed bunion) was too severe. But Dr. Gallina did 5 complicated procedures to correct each problem & my foot is now like the foot I had 20 years ago! I can jump, dance, walk and perform for hours. I'm not only footloose & fancy free - I'm pain free! Highest recommendation!

    Dr. Gallina is an excellent and an extremely skilled diagnostician and surgeon. She is kind, caring and empathic, answers all questions fully. I never feel rushed. Would and have highly recommended her to others. Her staff are excellent and fill out any forms you need promptly. Office manager Jessica is wonderfully efficient, understanding and the best prompt problem solver.

    I had surgery with Dr. Gallina three months ago and I am back on my feet. She is a warm, magnificent surgeon. Her office manager was very helpful every step of the way. Thank you so much, Dr. Gallina!

    Dr. Jessica Gallina is a most skillful professional. I admire her immensely and am ineffably grateful to her for the quality of the surgery she performed on my foot. I went back to skiing this weekend after an October intervention which is an enormous joy for me, since downhill skiing is one of my greatest passions. I can'r recommend Dr. Gallina highly enough. She is a pleasure to work with since her personality and sense of humor are a delight and her mastery of the craft is magnificent.

    She is the best doctor!

    Extremely available. Saw me immediately. Dr. GALLINA did a superb, creative surgery on my severed Anterior Tibialis tendon, a rare and difficult condition and procedure. She clearly saved my foot and is a highly talented and devoted doctor with a great humanitarian bedside manner. I am very thankful to have found her and recommend her without reservation. BTW I am a physician myself and very perfectionistic. She dealt with all my concerns in a kind and tolerant way. Couldn't be better!

    Dr. Gallina is a rare find in surgery. She has excellent surgical skills, knowledge of the life of a ballerina and the medical/recovery needs necessary to return to dance, and the unusual kindness and concern for the person as a whole person. I went from being concerned that I would walk properly again after my accident to 100% recovery and a full return to dance training. Dr. Gallina never rushed me through an appointment. She is sincere and talented.

    Compassionate and careful: Dr. Galina reviewed every option before suggesting bunion surgeries. But the surgeries were necessary and the outcomes were beyond my exletations.

    Words can not express my gratitude and time appreciation to you for all you have done for me. I can walk again! I can ride a bike- and play with my nieces and nephews! Your talent is amazing and bedside manner is unmatched! And even though, I am in health care you were very patient took the time to answer every small questions - no matter how trivial. Thank you!! I was truly blessed to have found you.

    Dr. Gallina is one of the best doctors I have ever found. She is kind, thorough, and always willing to go above and beyond. She has done 3 surgeries for me now, and I have been grateful each of those times that she was my doctor. I have already recommended her to a handful of friends.
    in New York, NY |
    Rude, condescending, dismissive. Her office is thronged with patients so she naturally has less than 5 minutes to tell you that you need surgery, sorry, deal with it loser. Very negative experience. I've had foot problems for years and she treated me like some frivolous nincompoop whose experiences were misinformed and stupid. Some doctors are just in it for the money.

    Dr. Gallina will give you a lot of attention until your having issues after your surgery that she cannot explain. She might have done her job as a surgeon but she is not a great doctor and her office manager is incredibly rude. Everytime I was there I waited over an hour and a half for her to say nothing of any help.

    I had a severe hammertoe which was contracted. Went to a Harvard Dr. at HSS> He recommended amputation. Saw Dr. Gallina who not only saved my toes and corrected the condition but did so in a gracious, professional manner. I highly recommend Dr. Gallina.
    in New York, NY |
    Awful Dr. office to deal with. After confirming I would only owe a co-pay they proceeded to charge me more because their rate is higher than the negotiated rate with the insurance company. Their stance is that they have 'no way of knowing' about my deductible, but they ABSOLUTELY know that their rate is higher than the contracted rate, and choose to not respect the patient's right to potentially incurring more cost. Go to a different doctor

    I have bi-lateral Achilles Tendonosis and Reynaud's disease. When I told Dr. Gallina that I had Reynaud's disease of the feet she said good luck with that. She performed a superficial examination of my right foot only. She did not want to examine my left foot. She refused to examine my large right toenail saying she doesn't do toenails. Toenails are listed on her website. She was curt, lacking compassion and dismissive in her tone.
