Absolutely fabulous! He is caring, concerned, and extremely talented. He performed surgery on my foot that hadn’t healed for a number of years following numerous surgeries. He’s great!

I am very disappointed in the service I have received from Dr. Gallina's Office. Last year I had an ingrown toe nail. They scheduled me for removal. I went back for the removal and Dr. Gallina looked at it for a minute and said I didn't need the surgery and it would go away on it's own and I could leave. He said I wouldn't be charged. Fast forward to April 2020 when I get a bill for $60.00 FROM A DEBT COLLECTOR for Dr. Gallina and Gulfcoast Medical Group Foot and Ankle. I wrote letters to the debt collector, Gulfcoast Medical Group, and Dr. Gallina's Office about the billing issue-- zero response. I HAD absolutely perfect credit my entire life, and now I have to deal with this. I will get this resolved and I will get that taken off my credit report. To whoever is reading this, my name is Jessie Jones and I'm the one who hand wrote letters to your office, which you never responded to. Now, I'm sharing my story everywhere and filing complaints with the BBB.

Contracture Of joint of right foot, Dr. did surgery in 02/2017, replaced rt. toe w/ metal one. Surgery was not healing properly, returned to office on 6/18/18. Dr assigned physical therapy to increase range of motion. Completed therapy & a year later my right hip, shins & foot make walking my dog painful. I am in more pain now than I was before the toe joint was replaced. There is also a huge gap between 2nd & 3rd toe, which was never there before. Not going back to this Dr. Going to try a DO instead of Dr Gallina who is a DPM. Had to give up my ballroom dance classes after surgery & still cannot resume.

Dr. Galina was late in seeing me ( I understand this can happen), but I felt the 5-10 minutes he did see me was a real waste of time. I was more concerned when my electronic Medical Chart was incorrect regarding describing my visit with him. My vitals and medications were not reviewed at all and my condition was not explained with charts and diagrams as documented in my Chart. I have asked that my Chart be corrected. I would NEVER recommend Dr. Galina.

Made appointment and confirmed twice that they were in network. Insurance company confirmed they were in-network. The Dr. office CALLED ME to rescheduled because Dr. could not make it in that day so they needed to change my appointment, in doing so, I took off work for the appointment that was 3 weeks later. I showed up to the rescheduled appointment only to be told I did not have an appointment and they did not take Florida Blue HMO. What crappy office managing, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR $$$

My ankle surgery was not something I looked forward to going through but must say was extremely happy with the results. Minimal scarring was a pleasant surprise, I find him to be an excellent surgeon.

If you have foot or ankle pain, he's the doctor you should see. Professional, personable, and caring - plus, he gets results. He has helped me tremendously and I would and have recommended him to everyone. I don't think you could find a better doctor if you are in pain.

Dr Gallina recommended I use a product which he sold in his office. I purchased the product from him because I wanted to build a positive relationship. Less than 24 hours after my visit, I called the office to report that the product had caused me severe knee pain. The office told me the product was non-refundable (which they had not told me at the time of the purchase). Sadly, they seemed more interested in making $50 from the sale than asking about my pain or helping me understand its cause.
