Care Philosophy

My philosophy of practicing medicine has always been to embrace every person as a whole being; physical, emotional, and spiritual. I am honored to be chosen as your doctor to help you with your healthcare and to fully practice holistic medicine with you as a partner. Your life and health is precious. I see all ages in my practice. 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.

Biography

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 Reviews (3)
Clackamas, OR |
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 help you manage a chronic condition with any kind of complexity. Communication & follow-through is a serious problem for this doctor, the only positive thing I can say is her nurse Dierdre is great.
Portland, OR |
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 able to spend quality time with me and asking for certain things to be noted for her typist. I look forward to having Dr. Gallegos as my primary care physician.

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