Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Galle took the time to explain my various medical conditions, even drawing diagrams to further explain them. I was there to see him for a DOT physical and was very impressed with his professionalism and his obvious caring attitude toward me as not only a patient but as a person.

Dr Galle has shown great deal of care for my high blood pressure and kidney condition. He allocated generous time to walk me and my family through key steps to improve my situation. I found his advise and guidance invaluable and I highly recommend Dr Galle. I was seen by Dr Galle multiple times since 2013 at Shifa Clinic(non-profit).

Dr. Galle an his complete staff were above excellent. Very efficient, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable about my medical condition and treatment. I will highly recommend Dr. Galle for medical treatment. Very seldom were you every alone while in the exam room waiting to see Dr. Galle. Someone was always available to answer any questions and or concerns from the time you walked in the door until your treatment was completed.

I saw Dr. Galle for a mild work related back injury. He did not just prescribe a drug for pain but took the time to show me exercises to help me heal and especially to avoid re-injury.
