Pittsburgh, PA |
You would think at his age and time spent as a pediatric doctor this his patient bedside manner would be astounding. Well it is by far the worst I've ever been around. Show some compassion for your patients and remember they are CHILDREN!!! unreal.
Lancaster, NY |
Beyond arrogant. The first appointment we waited 4 hours and never saw Dr. Galpin, just a resident, even though we specifically requested to consult with him. (My son had a broken arm; a determination if surgery was needed to pin the bone.) The second visit we finally met him; zombies from the walking dead have more manners. My son raised his hand to ask Dr. Galpin a question and he would not acknowledge him! Pompous and ill mannered bedside manner.

My daughter has seen Dr. Galpin a few times over the last year for an ankle injury. We both find him to be extremely rude & speak to you in a condescending way. It appears that he has very little time/patience for you. As you speak to him, he slowly inches toward the door. Should the need arise for my daughter to see an orthopedic doc again, I will definitely be looking for another that is more concerned with her rather than trying to run from the exam room.

Dr. Galpin is the Best Surgeon. My boys have both seen him. I TRUST his judgement completely. He is through, highly component, and very well respected among the other orthopedic surgeons around the country. Dr. Galpin is "THE" orthopedic surgeon who evaluates, diagnoses, stabilizes and manage patients with traumatic injuries. He manages the difficult cases at Children's Hospital. He also specializes in the treatment of injury, disease, and deformity as in the case of my sons.

Took my 7 year old here as recommended by her physical therapist. We sat in the waiting room over 2 hours before being taken in to be seen. Office staffed seemed pleasant.
Olean, NY |
He is hands down the nastiest doctor I have ever met. He is down right rude to both my son and I. We will not answer any questions and acts as if you are inconveniencing him.
Buffalo, NY |
While Dr. Galpin knew what he was doing, he was easily one of the most impolite doctors I've ever gone to. The day I got my cast removed, after 2 previous visits he had no idea who I was and why I was there. Not only was he rude to me but to his staff as well. Im not really sure why he's working with kids as it seems comforting is not his strong suit. Dr. Galpin was my inspiration to do my rehab exercises and try as hard as I could at physical therapy just so I wouldn't have to revisit him.
in Niagara Falls, NY |
I was send to UB orthopedics and saw Dr. Galpin for my daughter who had a elbow injury. We had x-rays taken at one of there other locations but they could not get access to them ????? The Dr was very rude and acted like he could not be bothered with us , I would not recommend him at all .. Extremely rude .
Buffalo, NY |
He was recommended to me by the pediatrician, and we got an immediate appointment with him. However, I would not recommend him at all. He was rude, would not listen to what my 16 year old daughter was saying, and told me to sit down when I was trying to view the X-ray as he was explaining the results. We will not even go back to him for the follow up appointment. I will go to back to Northtown Orthopedics, Dr Peter Gambacorta,who is excellent, very professional and listens to his patients.
