Dr. Galati has been my doctor for over 15 years and I have always received excellent and compassionate care. He has continued to care for me since my liver transplant in 2008. He is an advocate and is top in his field. I would highly recommend him!

Very pleasant staff. Called me the day before to prepare me for my visit with Dr. Galati. Small wait. But I would guess it comes with the acuity of patients. They took their time with me which provided comfort as I was very worried about my liver.

The negative reviews below are very accurate. I had the same experience. After the first visits they take the money and run with no feedback on your results and they postpone all future visits.

You don't hear back from your doctor's office regarding your results. Even if they look okay, they should provide them if it is requested. I requested my lab results (from May) in June, August, and September for 3times, no response. If they are not communicating with patients, what is the purpose of having a patient portal?

You only get to see Dr Galati ONE time. The rest you only see a nurse. I think Dr Galati cares for the money ?? more than his patients. Dr Galati sends lab work to his own lab which is GALA Pathology/GALA Histology. He does not care if it’s out of network because if the insurance doesn’t pay everything he makes the patient pay!

My patient went there first time. She was told that she will Dr. Galati only once. After that the PA will take over. That is unacceptable. I am not sure why doctors are getting lazy! White coat and stethoscope does not make you a good provider. It is the history taking skills and connection between it and the well trained brain that makes a real doctor a good doctor. Insist on real doctors only!

Yes I would always recommend Dr. Galati. He is the Best in his Area of Medicine. I have seen him for 17 years and tried several clinical trial medications to get curried of Hepatitis C. He help me along even though my dieses would not give in and die out. With Harvoni that he got me on I am now curried. An I have received a new liver by now and I saw him several times while in the Methodist Transplant facility. You cannot do any better that this facility or by going to Dr. Galati. His office st

As a long standing patient who admired this man at one time I was shocked by the way I was treated. I phoned the office 38 times left 14 messages on a recording and spoke to the service leaving a message 2xs. I was never responded to. A good thing another Doctor stepped in or I would be DEAD today! I still haven't heard back from anyone. Not Dr. Galati, his PA Erin or any of his staff. Beware of the doctor who gets 2 big to actually treat his patients. A huge disappointment!
