  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

Excellent Psychiatrist!

It took about one week to get an appointment- well worth the wait! He's well informed, well versed, and up to date. His professional demeanor is a good fit from teens to adults (an unexpected surprise). I'm picky, and I left there completely reassured I'd finally found a great doctor! Go, you won't regret it. His staff is good, also. (That matters to me.)

Great listener and perfect medication management

First off let me begin with his office personal. Richard is very polite and professional and is always in a good mood and he just makes the whole demeanor of the office very cozy and comfortable. I have been seeing Dr. Gallo for going on 3 years now and he is magnificent. He is a very good listener and he will even let you sit and tell you how your life has been going and what you have been up to lately. Most doctors only focus on your illness and then push you out the door. Dr. Gallo on the other hand approaches both your illness and also will have some small talk with you with the utmost professionalism. Another great thing about Dr. Gallo is he is always available in some sort of way. Usually if you call him early on in the day he will call you back personally himself and speak with you later on. If it is after hours, Dr. Gallo has a very convenient after hours answering service that will one way another get a hold of him for you. All and all he is a WONDERFUL doctor!
