Great Experience

I caught a nasty virus on my eyelid over the weekend and called my regular eye doctor first thing Monday morning who, I was alarmed to find out, was on vacation for a week! I was referred to Dr. Galst by my regular eye doctor's staff, and I promptly called Dr. Galst for an appointment. I explained I had some kind of eye infection or virus, and Dr. Galst's staff put me right in on the same day. Dr. Galst was patient and caring. He diagnosed my problem, prescribed the proper medication, and because we caught the virus early, it turned around immediately once I started taking the medication. I followed up with my regular doctor when he returned from vacation, and all was well. The virus had cleared, and the eye was not involved. This story could have turned out to be a very serious and unhappy one were it not for the help of Dr. Galst and his staff. I am very grateful.
