Dr Galles is a excellent doctor that I was so happy to have as my surgeon! He is very informative and knowledgeable the best in my opinion at his practice! I would recommend him to anyone who wants the best outcome for themselves!!!!

Dr. Kyle Galles is my #1 recommendation. I had a long standing shoulder injury that had occurred more than 3 years before consulting medical help. I had torn away one of my rotator cuff tendons and didn't realize the extent of the injury until I had an MRI. After seeing a local Orthopedic Surgeon I wasn't given much hope in having the tendon re-attached. I was then referred to Dr. Galles. He treated me with the highest respect and was confident that the tendon could be re-attached... it was!
