What People Say About Dr. Neil Galindez, MD

Dr. Galindez and his team made my experience bearable for me and my family because of their caring and competent approach to my surgery. The severity of my condition came as quite a surprise but Dr. Galindez and Daniel took the time to explain the complete procedure and recovery in depth to us, putting our minds at ease. Even during the surgery, he and his surgical team were in touch with my wife and children, keeping them informed of my progress. His follow up care was above and beyond my expectations, and we are forever grateful to him. His office staff have also handled my follow up visits with professionalism and kindness. We would highly recommend Dr. Galindez and his team.

Dr. Galindez is the most caring, understanding and excellent surgeon. He walked my husband and I through every stage of his quadruple bi-pass. He answer all our questions and prepared us for what to expect. He made sure he stayed in cicu and got the best care. He visited him everyday and was always there for us. There are no words to truly thank Dr. Galindez.

Dr Galindez performed a surgical procedure on my uncle. I found him to be informative and caring. He took the time to answer my questions and his surgical team kept us apprised throughout the procedure.

My experience was unsatisfactory at several points: 1) Pre-op communications seriously understated the procedure, and its likely side effects, 2) Post-op communications was almost non-existent - never successfully reached Dr G despite several calls, 3) two significant complications post op (pericarditis and incisional hernia) have left me seriously limited, and finally 4) Dr G's office declined to provide a copy of my surgical report as requested by my surgeon. None of these are OK

Not a very good patient advocate. Poor communication. Doesn't follow through with insurance issues.
