Specialties

Dr. Joseph Y Gali has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Research reviews about his billing practices - very questionable

As a doctor, doctor Gali was okay. Nothing special. The wait in his office was way too long for an infant or a baby. They always overbooked. Their bills never matched my insurance statements and they always had some bogus and strange explanations that did not make any sense. His staff was not very child-friendly and the billing lady was outright rude. I finally switched doctors. There are thousands of decent doctors out there, why put up with this?

communication difficulties

Dr Gali is OK if you only use him for routine checkups and if you kids don't have any health issue. However from my experience he seems to have difficulties interacting with young children. He doesn't listen to the patient or respect my participation as a parent. Communication with Dr Gali is difficult as he never calls me back, all phone calls are relayed through his receptionist.

After reading an on-line review about this doctor's billing practice I re-examed the bill I just received from Dr Gali, I noticed an unauthorized items on my statement for a regular infant checkup.
