I can’t say enough about Dr Pamela Gallin and her office staff. From the moment I stepped into her office I knew I was in good hands. I felt respected and understood. Her knowledge and understanding of my visual deficits were unsurpassed. I had complete trust in her opinion and in her ability to perform my much needed surgery. To say I am completely happy with the outcome is an understatement. I highly recommend Dr Pamela Gallin.

Dr. Gallin is very accommodating and takes time to answer all questions. She has been treating our daughter for two years and we have seen such an improvement. Her office and staff arewelcoming and there is hardly a wait time even on a crowded day. Best doctor!

I've never been to a doctor who is so engaged and involved. AND is extremely knowledgeable. With my previous Ophthalmologist, it felt like he wasn't listening to me at all, and it was impossible to get him on the phone if I needed to ask a question or discuss my prescription and treatment. Dr. Gallin is excellent. I highly recommend!
