Dr. Galandiuk in her staff are wonderful! I was referred to her by my gastroenterologist and another colorectal surgeon! Dr. Galandiuk has operated on me four times, due to IBD. I have been a patient of Dr.G's for 5 yrs and would hesitant to use any other Colon Rectal Surgeon!

I have Crohn's disease and Dr.Galandiuk performed a colon resection on myself doing it laparoscopically leaving a very small scar. She is a excellent surgeon and I feel privileged to have her as my surgeon.
