Can I just say first that Dr Gala is LOVELY! Her demeanor is warm and kind. A friend of mine recommended Dr Gala, and I am so very pleased. She came in prepared and knowledgeable of my history, symptoms, previous labs, etc., and it was very apparent that she spent the time to understand the entirety of my records. My concerns were approached with compassion, and something about her is simply comforting. She was very thorough. She explained many possible causes for different symptoms, and what her plan of action was to identify such and why. All in all, I am very pleased with my experience with her and look forward to future visits, despite the circumstances.

Saw Dr. Gala when I recently moved to the area after being followed by two different Rheumatologists in NY,NY&Boston,MA. Each Rheumatologist I met with prior to Dr. Gala saw me multiple times before BOTH diagnosing me with Lupus. Dr. Gala told me I should seek therapy because "stress" can cause Fybromyalga and that's what she thinks I have, not Lupus. Dr. Gala saw me 2x in 1yr and did not want to see me for 1 more year. Horrible and dismissive. Might as well have diagnosed me w/ "Hysteria".

I met with Dr. Gala for the first time yesterday and was very impressed! she listened to my complaints and had studied my chart from previous visits. She spent quite a bit of time with me trying to determine a course of action in my case. I am encouraged by her suggestions and will definitely be calling her my rheumatologist.

I have been seeing Dr Gala for several years for systemic lupus. She is a thoughtful and professional doctor who cares as much about my health as I do. I would follow her to any practice as she has helped tremendously to keep my health under control and improve my quality of life.
