What People Say About Dr. Kevin Gallagher, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The staff - Diane - immediately began the pre visit preparations and was very gracious and efficient. The wait time for Dr. Gallagher was normal - short - and as usual he answered any questions I had and questioned me on how I have been, and any problems or concerns I may have encountered. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a cardiologist in this area. And I certainly hope I can always have him as my physician.

I drive from Canyon Lake to see Dr. Gallagher. I feel he listens to me, never rushed and doesn't over-prescribe medications. In fact, he recommended a cereal for my breakfast that helped me eliminate meds.

He has been my cardiologist since we moved here five years ago. Following his advice has been very instrumental in my ability to maintain my best cardiac health. His empathy and concern for me as a patient is obvious at each visit.
