    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Dr. Galella Review

I have been a patient of Dr. Galella for many years and she is an excellent doctor. She is very professional & cares about her patients well being. she takes her time with each of my office visits whether it is a well visit or I am having a problem. She is very thorough and answers all of my questions. I wouldn't have anyone else treat me.

Doc is great office staff or unprofessional

The women at the front desk are mean and unprofessional. Making fun of patients and a pharmaceutical rep in front of everyone. Beware if you go there, they will do the same to you.

Excellent Doctor

I transferred to Dr. Galella's practice about 3 years ago and I have been very satisfied. She is very thorough and takes the time to explain everything to you. I do not have to ever wait long to be seen, and when I need to schedule an appointment on short notice, she is very good about fitting me into her schedule. She or a nurse has called to check on me and make sure that I'm okay after an illness. She is very kind and knowledgable, and I would recommend her to family and friends.

Excellent and very interested in her patients.

Yvonne may be a younger doctor, but she has excellent clinical skills and take a great interest in her patients. She really goes beyond what is required and what many doctors do. Now if she would only get a ham radio license.
