Best Dr

Been seeing him for years. Won't see anybody else. Both the Dr and the staff are always extremely helpful . With some drs to get a prescription refilled can be a project. With him I get it within hrs. And the staff is top notch (Tina and Barbara)

I've been waiting until I saw my grandfather awake and well after his triple bypass surgery in Boston by a fantastic surgeon and team; This is my time. This does not reflect the help of Dr. Galizio. According to Mr. Galizio, the state my grandfather was in prior to this at Lawrence general- it, and I quote, "it wasn't an emergency situation" was the term he used via telephone after he disappeared on my grandfather an entire day while my family and I did our homework on what was really going on. I will now only say this; I hope Dr. Galizio learns from this- that he will never take his patients lightly in his practice and hopefully now doing so wholeheartedly because it's a entire life and family that can be ruined by waiting too long and not investigating properly. My family and I could have not had my papa here today because of improper evaluation of him first okaying him for a hip replacement without fully checking his heart (as we came to know all of the blockages he had) and then ignoring our calls after he then returned for in hospital stay at Lawrence General. At that time we were waiting for dr. Galizios consent to be transferred to Brigham and women's hospital for proper care. After wondering why an entire day went by to wait for his consent I frantically called Dr. Galizios office close to 7:45pm and spoke to a very kind secretary explaining the situation- she understood personally how frustrated I was not knowing why the dr couldn't even return a phone call and then pushed through to him to call us. At that time, Dr. Galizio stated it wasn't an emergency situation and didn't feel the need to reach us back all day. He also had the notes from our calls from the day. The next morning my papa finally got to Brigham and women's where they evaluated him properly and determined the severity of the situation where he then had a triple bypass the following week. Amongst other neglected health concerns that prior Dr.s missed;he is now in good hands. That is all. My review reflects the neglect portrayed in reality that my family and I faced from a Dr. we were hopeful to trust; most importantly my grandfathers life at hand.

Terrible office staff.

So frustrated with the baboons in this office....sick of hearing we'll call you back and then nothing. Yeah Dr. Is nice but I'd rather a competent office staff to deal with. You can't tell me he's never gotten wind of what's going on out there (or should I say what's not going on out there). Time for a new Dr.
