My son had severe ulcerative colitis and needed surgery to remove his colon at 18 years old. Dr Gallagher took the time to go to Arnold Palmer and discuss everything with my son. Dr. Gallagher did three surgeries on my son. My son has a jpouch and is so healthy and happy. The staff are amazing and so kind. Dr. Gallagher is the best, he is calm and encouraging but most importantly an excellent surgeon!!

Had a visit with Dr. Gallagher ordered lab work and said a procedure needed to be done. Did the lab work never heard a word, was told the surgery scheduler would call to schedule, never heard from anyone. Called about lab work said never got it had lab resend called to make sure they received it and was told they had the original was on her desk did not have time to scan them in. Spoke to Gail head nurse and had no idea about what Dr. Gallagher had said that needed to be done, asked to have Dr. Gallagher call me. HAVE NOT HEARD FROM ANYONE. Read their statement on their website what a lie. Find someplace else to go.
