Dr Galler performed my gall bladder surgery and my husbands hernia operation. Both surgeries went along with no problems and great results! He made us both feel comfortable and totally informed of what was to be expected. We would definitely have Dr Galler perform any surgeries we would need in the future.

Dr. Galler took my medical history and did an exam which needed to be followed up with a biopsy and then surgery. He was thorough and kept me informed every step of the way. He is gentle and efficient. The office staff helped with referrals, obtaining records and scheduling surgery dates and follow up appointments.
