Everything that Dr, Galchus said to explain Cindy,s condition was shown and stated in a way that made it easier for us to visualize and understand. The risks as well as the urgency were completely discussed. From our very first appointment with Dr. Galchus, she was extremely thorough and confident. Dr.Galchus gave us the best of her talents and we hope that if we ever have to face a scary situation like this again.......that we have Dr Galchus to calm our fears.
