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!
