very pleasant and cordial staff and doctors-while this visit was not an emergency, it was for a problem and I was able to get a fairly quick appointment. I would refer this doctor to anyone who needed that particular expertise.

I always enjoy my visit with Dr. Gallagher

April 11, 2016

Dr. Gallagher was excellent! She did a thorough exam, listened to my comments and questions, and provided answers to all of my questions. She immediately established a great rapport with me and made me feel very much at ease. Dr. Gallagher also was very detailed in her explanation of my eye condition.

April 11, 2016

Dr. Gallagher is my primary Optham. I see her whenever I have an eye problem, and also regularly every six months. I owe her a great debt in that she diagnosed the tiny tear in my retina that would have eventually taken out vision in that eye, and managed to get a surgeon to see it that day, and then had them schedule a surgery. She is really competent.
