What People Say About Dr. Libi Galmer, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

13 yrs ago I was misdiagnosed by a podiatrist who performed surgery on my rt foot and he severed 3 nerves. That surgery left me in unbearable pain. I have had neuro surgery, different procedures and tried every drug available to alleviate the pain since then. A few months back I was referred to Dr. Galmer, which was a blessing. She is a wonderful, caring and knowledgable Doctor who has put me on the path to a pain free life without powerful drugs, with her stem cell and PRP procedures.

Incredible physician! She embodies all that one would want in a doctor. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, an out-of-the box thinker and cares deeply for her patients. I feel very luck to have found her. I have never had a physician so thorough, patient and attentive. SHE IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST!!!! I cannot recommend her enough.

In this ever changing climate of healthcare it's refreshing to see someone still taking the time necessary to facilitate patients back to health. I highly recommend Dr. Galmer if you are seriously ready to get back to a healthy life. She is truly gifted.

Mom was diagnosed w/sciatica and in severe pain,couldn't even get out of bed, ER visit 2x, 3 days in the hosp, 2 wks in a rehab facility, given Ibuprofen ,tramadol as needed with minimal relief. We saw Dr Libi after I googled and found her myself, and THANK GOD for her. She took the time listening to us, ordered MRI, continue PT and started mom on Gabapentin, from 3 tabs/day to 5 tabs/day now. From a walker, to cane, she's able to walk now w/o device. Pain is 0-1 . Very nice and caring MD!

Dr. Galmer is amazing. I came to her as a bit of an enigma and due to other health issues, we couldn't do standard treatment. She found a way to go around this, working with me for months through an experimental treatment to great success. Dr. Galmer is more cheerful than any other doctor I've met and truly takes the time to listen and work with me. She's never given up on finding a way to make my problem better and always remains positive. Her and her staff both display great care and kindness.

Went to Dr Galmer in April (for a cuff tear sustained in Sept). I saw 2 orthos, who were NOT helpful. Both gave a general "Band-Aid" answer of "your injury is not that severe, you can't be in much pain-just do PT and you'll be fine." Dr Galmer took the time to listen & assess my case. She thought that I did not need a more $ therapy, but advised a cheaper alternative. After 2 injections, my shoulder is almost 100% with full ROM. Most importantly, I am PAIN-FREE and have regained my life back.

Dr Galmer is an amazing doctor that exhibits the rare quality of actually listening and providing insight. She has helped with several issues over the years and each time I have been extremely impressed with her ability to assess, ask pertinent questions, and actually diagnose and suggest treatment that produced actual results. I would trust her with anything.

Dr. Galmer is an excellent doctor, her knowledge in regenerative treatment is outstanding. She saved me from having surgery thanks to PRP treatment. She is very caring and attentive. Very easy to communicate and always communicates promptly. I can not comprehend the person who gave her 1 star... must be a bogus review.... The whole clinic is state of the art the staff is always friendly and helpful. I recommend all heartedly.

What a terrible doctor, she was so uncaring and was quick to shove pills down down my throat for my back pain. She sat down and talked to me for less then ten minutes, diagnosed me, prescribed me meds and refused to see an MRI. Never again. I do not recommend this hack to anyone. The office staff wasn't any better, giggling and talking among themselves ignoring not only myself, but other patients. Very unhelpful, treated me like a time slot, a quick copay cash in and insurance claim.

I give her 5 stars. If you could give her a 10 l would. She is an excellent doctor. She is pleasant and kind and patience. She is very understanding when it comes to you pain. And she gives you very helpful tips to make your problem better. Wish there were more doctors like her. Wanda Hazel of Queens New York.

For months, I was in excruciating pain due to adhesive capsulitis (frozen Shoulder) in my dominant right shoulder. I was unable to lift my arm, sleep or even do every day activities. It was a nightmare. I had an x-ray, MRI and was in months of Occupational therapy and it seemed that I would never get better, until I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Galmer. She is brilliant, honest and straightforward. She treated me with respect and gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Galmer.

Dr. Galmer is a fantastic doctor who's New Age approach to medicine is refreshing and very welcome. Dr. Galmer attempts to treat the problem as opposed to applying Band-Aids by prescribing unnecessary medications and performing unnecessary procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Galmer to anyone who has any kind of physical pain or discomfort. She is a phenomenal doctor and I look forward to a time when more doctors use her approach and methodologies
