Dr Galasso is truly exceptional. His high level of skill as a surgeon is matched by his dedication to his patients. His compassion and ability to engage patients and family members in decision making is unmatched. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Galasso.

Dr. Galasso saved my eyesight several years ago. He was so very thorough. I would highly recommend him. He took care of my eyes and avoided surgery. NOW, my husband woke up with flashing light, floaters, and pain and his office immediately took all the important info and set up an appointment for him. No waiting months or being told go to the E.R. as what has happened with so many doctors offices. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr.Galasso.
