Dr Gilani was my surgeon for a functional rhinoplasty, where she fixed my x2 broken nose and opened my nasal passageways to improve breathing. During pre-op appts she was nothing but kind, patient, informative, and generous with her time and expertise. Her surgery team was wonderful and did everything they could to put me at ease on the day of surgery. Post-op she has been exceptional in her care for me. My nose looks great, I can breathe with the best of them, and I am super grateful. THANK YOU

Dr. Galani is the very best Physician, period. Not only is she a true miracle worker - she is the most capable and caring medical professional I have ever come in contact with. My procedure was challenging and unique to any other surgery she had performed. Instead of giving up and sending me on my way, Dr. Galani took swift action and collaborated with her peers — on the spot. The results were life changing. I felt like I could breathe for the first time in my life within 48 hours. AMAZING!!!!!

Great surgeon! Couldn’t be happier with the results of my functional rynoplasty. She explained everything clearly and was as nice as could be throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone requiring a surgeon of her specialty.

Dr. Gilani did an amazing job on my surgery!!! I went to many doctors, they tried to change different settings on my Cpap but again nothing. After visiting Dr. Gilani she suggested that I do 4 surgeries all at once! 1) remove my tonsils 2) remove my Uvula 3) Straighten out my nose 4) Open both sides of my nose. It took about 5 hours but boy I recovered after a week and I can breathe like I never thought possible. She knows what she's doing and she does it right. Thank you Doctor!
