Understands Sports Injuries and Options

I scheduled an appt with Dr. Galinat after breaking my clavicle and 3 ribs from a bicycle racing accident. Dr. Galinat considered the options and determined that internal fixation would provide the best outcome for my clavicle. I have 99% of my flexibility back and I am back competing in triathlons only 6 months after my injuries.

Dr. Galinat did rotator cuff surgury & followup care my left shoulder & a couple of years after, on my right shoulder. He is an excellent doctor with great bedside manner & a good sense of humor. He explains the problem so it is easily understood & will offer different alternatives to solving it. Since I'm an avid cyclist & swimmer, I appreciate the fact that Brian understands the athletes mindset so relates to how I think. When I wanted to wait to repair one shoulder because it was in the middle of the cycling season, he suggested that we do it during mid summer when the weather usually is the hottest. It was important that the repair be done asap, but he didn't feel waiting a month or so would be a problem. Also if there was anytime that would be ok to be off the bike, it would be when it is hot & humid. Brian promised me that I would be back on the bike to ride in the Dealware MS Bike to the Bay ride which I was. I recommend Brian Galinat to anyone.

Dr. Galinat Picks And Chooses

I attempted to get an appointment with Dr. Galinat after injuring my self at work. Acall was made to his office and once I mentioned Workmans Comp they had me jumping through hoops, first telling me that a claim # is need first and receptionist said she would contact Workmans Comp Co. and get info needed and then call me back. I waited for a week and call Drs. office back and advised I received info needed and would fax it over. I was told the info would be given to DR Galinat and then he would "decide if he wanted to take on the case". I waited again another day without a phone call and call the office thin inquire and was told "Dr. Galinat feels at this point you should see your primary doctor". What I failed to tell is I called to also make an appointment for my High School aged son who injured himself while playing foot bal and had basicly the same injury as mine and Dr. Galinat did not mention he needed to see our primary doctor first. Needless to say...Appointment for son canceled, and Dr Galinat Picks and Chooses who he'll see on a who's paying bases.
