Care Philosophy

I barely got to sit down in the waiting room, I really appreciate the fact that Dr. Galichon and her staff go out of their way to be on time. It was an annual wellness check and the whole thing ran smoothly and well.

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...more

I have quite pleased with my experience with Dr. Galichon. It is easy to make appointments and the waiting time is not too long. She is very attentive and responsive to my questions. I think my health is in a better place. I have recommended that my son and daughter become her patients.
