Because this was my first visit to discuss future treatment, probably surgery, it is hard to say I would recommend. I was impressed with the Dr's knowledge and confidence at this preliminary meeting.

dr Gallagher very good & seems very smart . but nurses were horrible.
Patient | September 11, 2018

she was not very explanatory and did not seem concerned about my condition and had me decide what type of brace to get which I had no idea and still don't
Patient | August 27, 2018

The dr doesn't seem invested in the patient relationship. She is in and out in a zip, giving you no time to even think of a question let alone ask it. She seems like she doesn't care.
Patient | August 27, 2018

Dr. Gallagher is very competent, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. I have completed confidence in her skills, abilities and knowledge.
Patient | August 13, 2018

I was with Provider for about 5 min. She seemed rushed. I was never asked what my pain level was.
Patient | April 23, 2018

She prescribed a medication that is not supposed to be taken with Aspirin, but I take an Aspirin every day for diabetes. I was told by the pharmacist that I should be okay, but keep an eye on it.
Patient | April 20, 2018

My care provider xould not have been any more forth coming about my situation and options.
Patient | April 12, 2018

Dr. G is awesome. She was great to talk to and ask questions. Very good doctor and person.
Patient | April 6, 2018

Dr. Gallagher didn't have much time to spend with me, any time that I saw her.
Patient | March 28, 2018

She is awesome!
Patient | March 23, 2018

So far the experience (surgery follow up) has been smooth.
Patient | March 7, 2018

Dr. Gallagher doesn't wast your time. she is very nice.
Patient | February 19, 2018

Waited very long time to see provider & then she gave us about a 3 min synopsis of how to treat & was ready to leave room until my husband stopped her. Told her we needed more information & clarification of what the treatment plan was.
Patient | January 31, 2018

Dr. Gallagher has given me expert insight on my warped foot as the result of a break that was misdiagnosed (by someone else) and never repaired many years ago. She's been very frank about the likely poor outcome of surgical repair and has been ingenious in directing me to orthotics and other support measures. She has suggested some ingenious, non-drug pain relief measures. She is clearly not a surgeon who rushes patients into surgery. Dr. Gallagher is friendly, compassionate and informative. I totally trust her medical judgment as well.
Patient | January 4, 2018

did not introduce herself, was quick but not very good about relaying important information for an upcoming procedure.
Patient | December 12, 2017

Very personality. I asked questions a couple of times and she dismissed them as if I was foolish for asking.
Patient | December 8, 2017

I was satisfied with my care, but the Doctor did seem to be rushed and in a hurry to get to the next place she needed to be.
Patient | December 8, 2017

It may seem antithetical that I would definitely recommend Dr. Gallagher to others. However, as a surgeon, she is top-notch and I am relying on others in my health-care team to fill in the blanks as far as information is concerned. So, over-all, I feel I am getting excellent care from Vanderbilt. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
Patient | December 7, 2017

I feel very fortunate that Dr Gallagher is my doctor,
Patient | October 10, 2017

I appreciate her candidness and professionalism and knowledge.
