Prompt, efficient, knowledgeable, direct communicator, great personality....what more could you want from a medical quarterback........
Griffith, IN |
Dr. Galante is so personable and concerned about your comfort during an exam. She explains everything clearly and is very thorough and professional. It's obvious that she truly cares about you and your health.
in Lowell, IN |
Dr. Galante is caring, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone.
in Hammond, IN |
I haven't seen her yet, I was told I couldn't see her until September even after I was referred to her by another doctor, hope she is worth the wait I made my appointment back in April or May
Crown Point, IN |
Dr. Galante does a great job listening to her patients. If I am concerned about something or express a worry, she will listen to me and provide information or order tests as needed. There is never a long wait to see her and her office staff is friendly and efficient.
in Hammond, IN |
The best doctor I ever had that care deeply about her patients. Well know for being the best and I would recommend her to any or everyone.
in East Chicago, IN |
She gives you her undivided attention-always returns phone calls-never rushes you
Quick to dismiss test results...does not discuss the details or reasoning behind doing so. Does not seem to trust your opinion or judgment easily. Communication style is somewhat condescending and flaky. After my visit, I decided I can't trust her and I don't feel comfortable talking to her.
in Hammond, IN |
Dr. Galante takes time with me & she is sympathetic to all my health issues . Dr Galante provides quality care and is genuine
in Munster, IN |
Dr. Galante is both knowledgeable and kind. She looks at you when she speaks to you, rather than at the computer, and is very thorough in her examinations. Her patients love her because she takes her time and catches things that other physicians might miss. Her staff is also very friendly and helpful whenever you call or visit. She is a wonderful physician. My Mom loves her, too, and is also her patient. In addition, the specialists she has referred us to have also been top notch physicians.
in Crete, IL |
Dr. Galante is caring, compassionate, really listens, takes plenty of time, makes me feel comfortable to be honest, doesn't rush into things but is totally responsive to needs--she's just the BEST!!!!
