I have been seeing Dr. Galvarino for several years and he always listens to me and I trust him to treat my anxiety and depression. I would recommend him to family and friends.

1st appt. was not good. He was in a bad mood or I upset him immediately. Spent 15 on 45 appt/eval, & was told 45. My conditions not discussed much, meds covered well. Felt my time was less valuable to him. 2nd visit, open & amiable! He answers all, explains all, asks leading ?s & can tell he cares about me. He's invested now. I follow instructions, more + change 6mo/him vs 18yrs/all over, attend psych visits. His investment is worth it to me, hope he knows & I'm truly thankful for his time!

What a poor excuse of a doctor. During the entire 7 minute visit, he called a family member selfish and psychotic, rarely made eye contact and never offered a treatment plan to treat depression and anxiety. For this rude, uncompassionate, non-professional dismissal, we paid almost $100.00! What a scam. How this guy continues to practice is beyond me. Even more surprising is why people would continue to go back to him. If you want better psychiatric care, you're better off standing on a street co

I saw Dr Galvarino today for the first time, April 18,2016... I was apprehensive at the beginning of my visit but after talking with him for a few minutes he won my confidence and my heart! Dr. Galvarino answered questions for me that I had not gotten any place else during my many years of therapy! He is compassionate and very open and willing to listen. At the end of my visit, he hugged me and said God bless you!

I would not recommend Dr Galvarino to any of my friends or family. He is not compassionate at all. He doesn't care about his patients. He cares only about the $$ he is making. I went to him for help and found myself feeling worse after I left his office. I paid $84.00 for 5 minutes of his time.

If you want to go to a psychiatrist who cares about you, Dr. Galvarino is not your guy. If you're looking for someone to try and help you understand the medications he wants you to take and what the plan is for your treatment, look elsewhere. If you don't care if your doctor is just running a production line of patients and you are the next couple hundred dollars he's making, you'll do just fine with doctor Galvarino.
