Tummy tuck / lipo

Absolutely loved the whole experience. Amanda, Tess, & Jessica (part of his staff) were so awesome! Dr. Galumbeck was extremely knowledgable and made me feel comfortable! I’d highly recommend them to anyone for cosmetic surgery!

One Star

The staff was so much nicer when he was at his old location, as a matter of fact so was he. I had lipo done on my saddlebags, waist and butt. Well my side of my butt had a bulge afterwards. Against my better judgement, I went to him again for my drooping eyelids. Should have canceled when all they could talk about was money. I now have 1 droopy eye. Please beware. .

One Star

The worst Botox procedure that I have ever experienced. The procedure it self was not an issue , it was the injection of 40 units and seeing no results . I went back two weeks after my first session and he offered a "touch-up" . That was a huge waste of time because no additional results were noticed. I did have my appointment during the "special rate " , and I wonder if the lower cost meant lower potency .? I would never recommend this center to anyone . I have received numerous , positively wonderful , sessions with other Spas before , going to Dr Galumbeck. All of my other treatments were noticable within 5 days after injections and I didn't even have as many . Steer clear unless you enjoy being disappointed .

What a Joke

Dr. Galumbeck is far more interested in padding his bank account than he is in providing high quality cosmetic surgery. The primary focus of this medical practice is to compel potential patients to put down a deposit and schedule a procedure. Once that happens, any modicum of service, responsiveness of basic caring disappears. As a highly active 43 year old male (5'11 - 175 lbs) with good dietary habits, I was simply looking to shed some tough to lose abdominal fat. On examination, Dr. Galumbeck informed me that I was an ideal candidate for laser liposuction and assured me that I'd be really happy with the results, Well, we are now 8 months post op and not only did I not lose any size in the waste and flanks, I actually gained a half inch ( by the doctor's own measurements at the 4 month mark) due to some swelling which has never subsided. Back when Dr. Galumbeck and his office still bothered to schedule appointments or return calls, he consistently reassured me that I just needed to give it time. In essence, the doctor's MO seems to be to string patients along until they give up and go away.
