Patient Comments (2)
in Ottumwa, IA |
I've been seeing Dr. GALLES for about three years for my arthritic ankle with cortisone injections. It got to the point where I had to replace it. I'm happy to say my new joint is pain free. Dr Galles is the most conscientious doc I've ever had! His care is impeccable and thorough. All the staff in his office has been very friendly, professional, and thorough. I would definitely recommend Dr Joe Galles for your foot and ankle needs!
in Pella, Iowa |
He was a kind and caring doctor. The surgery that I had was considered elective and he did not push me to have the surgery like some doctors might have. My care while at Iowa Ortho was excellent both pre and post surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Joe Galles to any of my family and friends.
