He's done two surgeries and I had good results but when I was seen last visit they refused to treat torn rotator cuff. Because it was work comp but I was unhappy with doctor I couldn't trust. I left Galbraiths office with no exam, no relief and feeling helpless.

If it’s not a sports related injury, he doesn’t seem to give much of a care. He will speak above your head and not give much in the way of explanation. His staff is the WORST. I’ve had required work documentation filled out or fixed multiple times. When told I would be seeking a second opinion, they shredded the documents claiming that they “thought I wouldn’t need it”. Some may have had a glowing experience, but I definitely haven’t. When you and your staff make me more nervous, then seemingly try to bully me to use your service, I’m beyond glad to be seeking a secondary opinion.

during your research seeking a physician for total knee surgery, once you reach Dr Galbraith’s web site ,you need not go any further in your query, you have reached the master , informative, assuring, very well presented,..and his staff is outstanding!! My experience having a total knee replacement has been top shelf, , I am a disabled veteran and due to injuries I endured while serving in our US military, I have been subjected to numerous medical procedures since the 1970’s, Dr Timothy Galbraith’s expert example should be used as a format by all other physicians in the arena of total joint replacement , I can not find the words to exemplify the satisfaction of my experience with Dr Galbraith’s expertise and his team’s support.

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.
