I recently had a hernia repaired by Dr Galloway. He answered all of my questions before the surgery and I am now healing nicely. I was very pleased that this simple procedure was done on an outpatient basis in Dr.Galloway's own building/surgery facility across the street from Scripps Hospital, Encinitas. There was plenty of parking very close to his office. His office is pleasant and his staff are competent and helpful.
I first meet Dr. Galloway about 8 year at scrips hospital in La Jolla. I was refereed to him by another surgeon that just had ankle surgery. Dr. Galloway was caring and honest about recover. Last week, I end going to the Scrips Memorial ER where the ER doctor need to talk to a surgeon. I request Dr. Galloway who end up having to do another emergency surgeon on me. He got a great bed side manner but more important is he a GREAT surgeon.
Dr Galloway put me at ease the minute the walked into the emergency room. He said that I looked scared, which made me and my husband laugh and that made me relax. Dr Galloway explained I had an appendix that needed to be removed right now. The care and attention I had was above and beyond any previous care I have experienced. Great Doctor I would highly recommend Dr Galloway!!!
