What People Say About Dr. Richard Galitz, MD

Dr. Galitz operated on my eyelids in August 2018. After cataract surgery, my eyelids were drooping heavily, and I had trouble staying awake at meetings. Dr. Galitz corrected my eyelids and I am very pleased. Additional plus, Dr. Galitz uses local anesthesia, with the option of a pill to relax, if one wishes. No mandatory sedation!

I rate Dr. Galitz and his staff five stars based on the overall professionalism of the office staff, care and attentiveness provided by Dr. Galitz, and staff throughout the entire pre and post-surgical process, his years of experience and artistic talent, and most of all, the exquisite result I received were far beyond expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Galitz if you are considering facial surgery of any kind.

Dr. Galitz conducted a revision rhinoplasty on the tip of my nose to remove a small bump from a cartilage graft. He conducted the procedure under local anesthesia and I only took valium beforehand. It was perfect. My nose now looks great and it was exactly what I hoped for. Dr. Galitz did the procedure from inside my nose so there are no external scars. There was no pain whatsoever. I didn't even take Tylenol. He offered the least invasive and risky approach so I chose him and I'm so glad I did.

Awful results and terrible bedside manners. Save yourself a lot of money and headaches, and go elsewhere. Do your research and don't believe everything he tells you, despite how experienced he may sound, the catchy ads, the promises, or the pictures of "other patients" he shows you. Evidently, he would never show you pictures of all of us whom he has wronged by. Don't make the same mistake I made!
