This was my first visit with Dr. Galloway. Originally I asked for an appointment with Dr. Robertson, based on the reviews posted. His schedule was evidently full, the receptionist suggested I see Dr. Galloway. I had been under the care of a dermatologist for over 20 years, who recently retired. Dr. Galloway's manner was brief, appeared condescending. She did not analyze the "wound" I came in for, utilizing a large lighted magnifying device, simply depending on the flourescent ceiling light. I indicated that I previously had an exact replica of this "open" wound on the other side of my face years ago, and that my then dermatologist did not think it should be "frozen" as he did with most typical pre-cancerous spots. He recommended a topical creme that eventually closed the open, sensitive wound. She immediately concluded the wound needed a biopsy, which I questioned. Due to the fact that she scraped this open sore, it was quite painful for about 5 days afterward. The biopsy came back negative, as I had expected. I don't intend to revisit Dr. Galloway.
Did not relay my profession, that is, I too am a physician. Dr Galloway's bedside manner was unprofessional, condescending, and curt. Her knowledge and expertise in her profession clearly was not manifested during my apt. I have seen several dermatologists over the years as a patient and known many during training and while in practice. Unfortunately, though everyone, including physicians are entitled to a bad day, her demeanor and professionalism have much to be desired. I have never had a whole body exam for possible skin CA without loops utilized until this appointment. Nor have my colleagues heard of a similar scenario. Though I have referred to her partner often, I will likely change my future referral patterns. There really was no excuse for her lack of professionalism.
