I was late for appointment and the specialist still saw me despite an unusually busy day for her. She did not appear rushed and performed a detailed history and exam. She patiently answered my questions. This first visit with Dr Gallagher exceeded my expectations and I would recommend her to others. She is an asset to UPMC.

dr Gallagher is my preferred dr

August 17, 2018

dr. Gallagher was very thorough and complete. She made us feel comfortable with her confidence and expertise. We didn't feel like we had a good outcome when we first started but by the end of the visit we were thrilled with the opportunities to correct the vision problems.

I've been seeing Dr Gallagher monthly for over a year for macular degeneration and have had excellent service each time. No complaints.

August 10, 2018

Very good care. Dr. Gallager at UPMC Eye Care saw me right away to check if there was damage to my retina. I had floaters and flashing lights in my left eye.

August 10, 2018

Dr. Gallagher and staff were excellent in working with my special needs cousin who turned 79 years on August 14. He woke up unable to see out of his eye and we needed to see a UPMC specialist. He has a physician in Shadyside, but the office was unable to get us in so the family eye doctor pursued another route through UPMC and we received Dr. Gallagher. We are very grateful and love her and staff. Thank you!

It's very refreshing to have a Dr. like D.S. Gallagher. She asked the correct question as to prompt me to give the needed information as to ascertain what she need to know. Very professional in all her question and work. No unrelated queries as to make the visit something it wasn't. I see why Dr. Gallagher was referred to me by my last Dr.

August 08, 2018

Dr. Gallagher was recommended to me as an opthamologist after I had a Retinal Artery Occlusion. I have visited her several times in the past year. she is always professional, helpful and happy to engage in discussion with me about my health and to answer my questions. I'm very pleased with her care.

August 07, 2018

I was given an appointment quickly, which was a huge relief. Dr. Gallagher was very informative, reassuring, and professional. i will definitely be seeing her in the future.

August 03, 2018

The office was behind schedule. The staff rushed through health questions.The office staff need education on how to talk with a person who is hard of hearing.
