just wanted to finish my review on Michael Gallagher my life ended the day that Gallagher did surgery on me the operating reports said they have a navigation problem I could look at the MRIs and see exactly what happened he made up lies and told me things that were not true just to cover himself I could write a book on this experience but I try to move on the losing everything you have built your life around is very hard especially when you read the operative report admits his multiple errors

all I can tell you is to run find another doctor ,my dad had a tumor removed he told us he would be home in 4 days 40 days later he passed away after the surgery he never made it home he never saw us after the surgery or gave us any test results he just washed his hands with my father you will never see this doctor again but he will send some one training from his office Mr. Gallaher you will answer for what you have done one day! you know you made a mistake you are one sorry excuse for a man .

Dr. Gallagher is brainy and intense, and like a lot of surgeons and specialists he seems a little distant at first. He's actually a nice guy when you get to know him. He is excellent at what he does. He did emergency surgery in a critical life-and-death situation and the results were amazing. His office is poorly run like most medical offices today; the people are stressed and robot-like. I guess it comes down to: Do you want to feel warm and fuzzy, or do you want to walk and have a normal life?

Dr Gallagher is a very kind and considerate physician. He listens to your problems, understands them and acts on them. He is an excellent surgeon and his post-op manner is also excellent. His staff has always been nice and helpful. I highly recommend him and his staff. I will continue to see him for any problems. I am a retired pharmacist and during my practice, I learned a lot about our local physicians and Dr Gallagher is the best!
