sadly I will be seeking another provider. It is very difficult to get a timely answer to questions. I have emailed her via my chart 3-4 times due to a UTI. I have not yet recd an answer. I do not want to go to urgent care or ER due to covid and should be able to get an order for a UA.

Dr. Galvez has always been the doctor that spends time with you, listens to you and cares about your health. I and my husband have been with Dr. Galvez for over 10+ years and she has been the best doctor we have ever had. She is very thorough at our physical appointments and makes valid recommendations for improving our health. I higly recommend her to anyone looking for a great doctor, especially if you have had a lot of experiences with bad doctors and specialist in the past.

I have been seeing her for years and am pleased with my care. She listens and does not rush through the visit. I have recommended her to a family member. When I have had an urgent need, I got in quickly. I am glad to have found her.

Dr. Galvez is the best! She always listens to my concerns and gives appropriate feedback. I would follow her anywhere, if possible. I came to know her through Dr. Newmarian. When she passed it was a natural flow with the same level of care and consideration. Lovelace, don't ever lose her!

Dr. Galvez is a fantastic physician. She is very thorough and great with explaining medical information in layman's terms. Dr. Galvez always has a lot of patients she is busy with but she never makes me feel rushed, she gives me her full attention, allows me the time I need, and takes the time to be sure she is taking care of all my concerns at one time.

I am a most satisfied patient of Dr. Galvez. My experience has been excellent; just as I had hoped when I chose her as my primary care physician years ago. I have ongoing medical issues; she has referred excellent specialists for each and she stays on top of each issue, insuring good treatment. I find her to be very thorough. Lab orders are comprehensive and address all of my issues. Office visits are very effective, as she seems to take the time to review my medical history before hand. I trust her with my health and wellness and am a "Happy Lovelace Camper".

Dr. Galvez is very thorough and personable. Her attention to detail is so reassuring. She is able to review with easy all of my medical records from various physicians and testing facilities. And she provides excellent medical advice in a very understandable manner which I very much appreciate.

I had Dr. Rosa Galvez at Presbyterian for 5 years. She then left to practice at Lovelace. I miss her. She is such a compassionate doctor that I am thinking about switching to Lovelace. She always made time to ask is there anything else I can help you with. She would follow up on all my tests and would make sure that I understood my results. I wish more Doctors were like her.

Dr. Galvez is professional, personable and competent. She doesn't really do any traditional check-up outside of listening to lungs and heart, but is responsive to patient questions, problems. I have had a problem with extremely long wait times in the past, but this visit my appointment was honored in a timely manner.

I've recently dropped Dr. Galvez as my physician. She's good I think; no complaints about the care I've gotten—when I've been able to see her. It took five months to get in to see her when I was first scheduled to see her by the Lovelace Group. Twice I've had scheduled appointments pushed back because she was going to be out of town. The second time the appointment was moved back 3 months. Hopefully this is not the case, but I got the sense she may be writing off senior citizens. Routine appointments are important for us and should not be put off. I can see occasionally being put off a week or two, but no more than that.

New primary care doc for me. – Sep 13, 2019
×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Rosa Galvez, MD?

My concern is more about the wait times than the doctor; she is very competent. There is a whiteboard at the reception area that shows wait times of all 3 doctors, and while they are always on time, her's typically shows 45 minutes to an hour and a half late (I have pictures of this). What has that kind of time? And while she runs way behind, you cannot check in any later that 15 minutes or you will forfeit your appointment and be charged a late fee. You are not even allowed to check in over the phone; you have to be there in person. It's ridiculous! In addition, scheduling is a nightmare, so be sure you know 6-8 months in advance that you will need an appointment, especially for a physical which is only done on Thursdays, I believe. For example, I called in January and got an appointment for September, the earliest. I just received a call in May saying she was out that week and the next available appointment was June 2020, over a year later! I'm not sure what's happening there...

I don't necessarily have an issue with Dr. Galvez, rather it is with the office scheduling and the ridiculous wait times. I'd say 4 out of 5 appointments at this office have required a 1 hour or more wait because the doctor is running behind. They don't give you advance notice of this delay and you can't leave and come back without risking your turn. Then, when you finally get a turn, you feel the doctor is rushing you since she is so behind. Otherwise, I like Dr. Galvez and would recommend her.

First couple visits I thought she was fine. Then when I was feeling ill and was very worried she wouldn't see me because I was 6 minutes late ( the patient before me was still in the waiting room, so the were running late already). When I finally got in to see her she said it sure looked like I had ALS, a devestating fatal disease. Thankfully an appt with a neurologist ruled that out. Now, 2 years later I'm finally ready to let people know. WORST DOCTOR I'VE EVER SEEN!

My grandfather had a blood pressure of 175/105, I called to get advice on how to proceed, they said someone would call me back. 53 hours later I was called back on a Friday at 4:56 pm only for her to tell me we had to make an appointment. Fortunately I also called another one of his doctors, I spoke to a nurse and got him in the very next day, and they said this was a matter not to wait. He was already on different meds for a full day before this office even called me back. NOT impressed

I've been seeing Dr. Galvez for a little over a year and she is a HORRIBLE doctor. She does NOT CARE about her patients nor is she willing to listen to what her patients have to say. Her misdiagnoses have landed me in urgent care twice and the ER with serious medical issues. Her staff is rude and are more focused on baby showers, pot lucks and Hawaiian days than actually doing their jobs. A complaint has been filed with Lovelace and SW Medical in addition to notifying her medical director.
