About Me

I decided to pursue a career in medicine at the age of ten years old because I am fascinated by how our bodies work and I wanted to work with people.  I am inclined to emphasize healthy living and ways to prevent or treat disease aside from taking medication.

Dr. Galichon is a very patient and understanding professional. Before visiting her I had never considered a PCP because I did not trust doctors. She has changed my opinion. She is very concerned about my health and mental well being. I am comfortable with discussing my health, family, job and fears with her, she listens and understands. I am thankful that she was recommended to me by Henrico Doctors Hospital.

If you are looking for a Doctor that will listen to you and thoroughly explain to you your care options, Dr. Galichon is it! She is fast and courteous. Her office has been able to work me in and goes above and beyond what any Care facility has been able to do for me. I have multiple health issues and feel like I am in the right place for a doctor to oversee all of it. Her nurse is outstanding and the weight time has never been long. Dr. Galichon and staff get an A plus in my book!
