He is absolutely awful. The first thing he said to me was that I was attracted to him. I suffered years afterward because I never received proper help for my trauma of being abused as a child.

During the visit while we were talking he was filling out the bill at the same time. Would not recommend. Put me on maximum doses of several different medicines and was detrimental to my health overall.

I recommend Dr. Galston to anyone that is struggling with despair, anxiety, lost hope. Dr. Galston has been key to improving my care for depression and anxiety. Appointments are on time and he listens well and adjusts meds as necessary. I started seeing Dr. Galston 2 years ago when I was severely sleep deprived and depressed. Although I still have many unresolved issues, the meds make a significant difference in my ability to cope with what I can not change.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Galston’s for years. He remembers everything I say and is very empathetic. I especially enjoy his sense of humor! I have recommended him to friends who have liked him, also.

We were looking for someone to evaluate and help our teenage son. The initial appt was supposed to be 45 minutes and the follow ups 30. He only spent 20 minutes with him the first time and instantly put him on meds. The follow up visit was only 10 minutes. He only seems interested in money at $440 for the first visit and $130 for the followups (no ins coverage). Very little conversation according to my son. We feel very taken. Also sketchy that he pulls cash out of his pocket to make change.

Just speaking the the receptionist was enough for me to decide not to go to this practice. After being made aware that this appointment was to address anxiety she was still extremely rude and short. You’re a psychologist, you should have a team who are looking to help people and have a positive attitude when dealing with possibly sensitive patients. So disappointing that your upfront staff make patients uncomfortable.

Avoid Neuropsych if you can. Capricious rules and poor follow-through. I am so glad that I no longer deal with their attitude or lack of engagement.

I saw Dr. Galston for years and always felt like he was checking boxes on a checklist. Marriage, check; health, check; etc. He didn't even look up the majority of the time. If he had, he would have seen that my mouth was hanging open, because I couldn't believe how disengaged he was. I'm fortunate to have found another provider who spends 30 min. truly listening and caring and always looking at me! I pay much less, and the treatment is far superior.

As of Jan 20q7, 've been seeing Dr. Galston for over three years. On my first visit Dr. Galston was very attentive and empathetic, and I left with a hopeful positive feeling. On follow-up visits over the next several years, I started to get the impression that while Dr. Galston probably wants to "help, that he might be burning out. Our visits are usually rather short, much of that being spent the with him reviewing notes. He is willing to adjust medications and doseage.

There's a reason it is so easy to see this doctor. Zero bedside manners.

My daughter left his office in tears. He is supposed to be helping her, not making her feel worse. He wants to prescribe medication, but if you don't want daily medication, then he offers no help but to tell the patient to read a book. He doesn't want to provide therapy, he only wants to medicate. That is his solution.
