Dr. Gallegos' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gallegos "The desire to become a doctor began in my high school years at St Mary's Academy in downtown Portland. I loved helping people and wanted the challenge medical school would bring. Throughout my high school years, I worked with kids with disabilities, in nursing homes, in hospitals, and as a nanny for 2 children. These experiences painted a full picture for me and helped me gain a better understanding of what area of medicine I wanted to pursue. That full picture provided the 'Ah Ha' moment that was the birth of becoming a family medicine doctor giving me the opportunity to reach an entire range of people of all ages and abilities. In the mid 80's when I was interviewing for medical schools, I discovered a strong preference for osteopathic medicine. Their philosophy has always been to embrace every person as a whole being and recognize how essential it is to address everything; physical, emotional, and spiritual. Their approach to medical students was the same nurturing environment they encouraged for patients. Osteopathic body manipulation provided an alternative method of treatment to prescription medications. I am a wife, mother, sister, and daughter and embrace these roles as I do everything...with love and compassion. I see all ages in my practice and enjoy the differences the ages bring. I have a strong respect and admiration for the elderly as well as young mothers and fathers who are new to juggling life's challenges."

During my first visit with Dr. Gallegos, I asked for several referrals. One for a naturopath - which she grimaced at - and one for a dermatologist for some small areas of skin discoloration. She said "you don't need a dermatologist -- I can take care of it though you may have a small scar. Less...Read More

Dr. Gallegos is a perfectly nice doctor willing to write prescriptions and referrals (eventually, after repeated inquiries) but nothing beyond that. She will not follow-up with you, when you send messages you will get a reply that seems a non sequitur (if you get a reply at all) and she will not...Read More

I felt heard and understood, not rushed like I've felt with another provider. I appreciated the fact that she has someone to type for her. Another provider I've been seeing was always on the computer typing and looking things up. I appreciated the looking things up, but I liked Dr. Gallegos being...Read More
