What People Say About Dr. Timothy Galbraith, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

This doctor is dishonest, his nurse noted that in the computer records he indicated he was seeing me at least 15 minutes before I actually saw him, he was very insulting, kept me waiting a long time, and did not help me with my knee pain a bit. He was short tempered with me because I could not do a deep knee bend, duh I was in a lot of pain. I left his office in tears and with no help. He told me to go back to my vein doctor, when I did, the vein doctor said that Dr. Galbraith should be able to tell from my MRI that was not the problem. I am out $700 and have to see another Orthopedist.

I trust Dr. Galbraith whole heartedly. He talks directly to you, explains everything in detail. Wants to know exactly how you feel, where you feel it and lines up any and all tests you will need. He knows his stuff. He's operated on me three times (two knees and a shoulder), and on my daughters ankle and he was a professional each and every time. He's also friendly and you walk away feeling like he cares.

Dr. Galbraith: I had surgery performed by him, very professional, surgery was a success, explains everything in details, and makes sure you understand completely. Went a second time for a lower back issue again excellent care, ran tests that were necessary for a diagnosis, and did a referral to a back Doctor. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Galbraith helped my son with a meniscus tear last fall. He was professional, caring, informative and extremely sensitive to my son's needs. He went above and beyond in caring for him. He followed up on the phone and even checked in on him. Dr Galbraith made a season ending injury bearable by caring my for son's knee injury and caring for his mind. As a father and football coach I would highly recommend Dr Galbraith.
