Staff I found to be friendly and helpful. Dr Galin is knowledgeable, friendly and takes the time to explain what he is going to do in the exam and the surgery that's upcoming. I will use him as my regular ENT since I have a long history of sinus issues

Very disappointed. Drive 25 miles round trip to be told they are not accepting new patients. Why couldn't I be told this when I made the appointment.

I apologize that my staff didn't get more specifics about your plan on the phone. To clarify, I absolutely accept new patients and most plans. Some plans that are through the Affordable Care Act, I am not on. For example, I accept Humana, not HumanaX. Your plan's website has a list of participanting providers. I do not feel that giving me one star for overall rating reflects my quality of care as a physician. I am sorry you had to drive out of your way.
