VERY DISAPPOINTING

I will never go back to this place again. I scheduled a appointment today as a new patient to see the doctor. Not only did she send me away and stated they couldnt see me because they dont have enough time to see me. (NOT ENOUGH TIME! THEN DONT SCHEDULE MORE PEOPLE THEN YOU CAN HANDLE! DAHH)They sent away 2 more ppl behind me whos appointments were much more important then mine. being that the next patient was a paraplegic! Do you ppl understand how hard that must have been for her to go out of her way already scheduled for you to cancel it. As for me ill find the doctor im looking for I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PHYSICIANS OFFICE! DONT GO UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR TIME.

Wonderful Dr.

Went to Dr. Gale almost 30 years ago, just becuz he was closest Dr. to home at the time. Boy, did I luck out. Have stayed with him ever since because he's so smart-has provided better and more knowledgable treatment than my specialists at times and he's such a great person. Really cares about "his" patients. He knows "me" and takes it seriously when I say something isn't quite right, even if I don't know what. He's caught some medical issues really quickly and nailed them exactly right. Sometimes there's a longer wait time than usual - it's because he's spending the time needed with each parent, vs. running us through quickly. Amazing Dr. - amazing person.

Old School...

Dr. Gale makes you feel like he really cares about you and your health. He is willing to take the time to explain what his diagnosis is and why he thinks you should be treated the way that he prescribes .

Best doctor ever!

Dr. Gale has a manner about him that makes me feel better the instant he walks into the room. He is kind, courteous, gentle, funny, and supremely competent. I always feel like he's really listening to me (in my experience, this is rare in the medical community), and he spends as much time with me as I need. His follow-up is amazing, to the point that he'll return my calls on the WEEKEND if he can't reach me during business hours. Dr. Gale has been my doctor for more than 20 years, and I'll never go to anybody else.
