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."

Patient Comments (4)

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...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...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...more

Comes across very nice and understanding, but tells you one thing and does the other.
