Great Dr but their waiting time at Hialeah office is horrible , I had an appointment at 2 PM and waited 3,1/2 hours for a procedure ,when in front of the Dr, the assistance nurse said they need to get approval from the Insurance and ,declined to call my Insurance so I lost all my time.

I had my cataract eye surgeries with Dr. Galindez, and I am so grateful that I landed in the hands of such an incredible doctor and surgeon. I had an incredibly fast recovery, and the results I saw just one day after the surgery were phenomenal. I recommend Dr. Galindez to anyone who needs to do any surgical treatment to their eyes! His skills and bedside manners are over the top! Thank you doctor!
