Dr. Jeffrey E. Galpin's Ratings
I have been seeing Dr. Galpin for almost 25 years. He is an amazing diagnostician. He listens and cares. He is honest and upfront, and let me take part in decision regarding my treatment. He is thorough, and his first "hunch" and treatment choice is correct 90% of the time. There is a long wait at times, but he is worth it. They don't make doctors like him anymore!

One of the most brilliant physicians I have met! A big negative is the sometime long (1.5hr) wait times. I'm extremely happy as he has helped keep me alive and healthy with HIV for almost 2 decades. Will work with the patient in deciding his or her care options. He doesn't hesitate to reccomend other specialist when needed. Very nice person too. HIGLY reccomended...the best ID Dr. around!

Very simple. He's kept me alive for the last 14 years despite having a crazy combination of infectious diseases. Do I have to wait to see him...you bet. Is it worth it...you bet. Even returned my phone call to Greece when I had an issue on my honeymoon. He's the best.

I have to agree with all the positive things the other raters said, and with the long waiting times. He really is cutting edge. I often bring in articles about research, treatments, clinical trials, etc and he takes the time to go over them (90% of the time already knows about them!)and discuss the pros and cons. His bedside manner is excellent; he is compassionate and talks to you at whatever your level of understanding is. He is an amazing diagnostician and can find the needle in the haystack like no other doctor I know. I've been a CFS patient of his for more than four years now, and sometimes think all the tests he runs on me is for his research, but every medical problem I've had he has been able to solve, even one that a neuro/internist/cardiologist/hospitaliztion could not. It's no wonder he has patients from all over the west coast; he IS that good.

Dr. Galpin is about as good as it gets. Even saw me for free while I was switching my insurance so that I could continue being treated. Top researcher and top notch doctor. I drive 25 miles to see him even though I have two of the largest medical centers in Souther California within 10 minutes of my house but that doesn't compare to other who fly in from accross the nation for their regular appoints. He's that good.

Great for obscure or infectious diseases and undiagnosed autoimmune disease. This doc will not just give out rubber stamp diagnosis like the other 40 docs you have been to. He will actually listen to everything you have to say and test for everything under the sun until he figures out what is wrong. He gave me back my sanity.

Extremely knowledgeable, willing to work with you, but doesn't pretend to know it all. Into research and on the forefront of medicine. Downside - very very busy - long office waits.

I have been a patient of his for 25 years, he is the best, he takes time to be with you, if you want fast service go to a fast/careless doctor. The wait to see him is worth it, look him up on the internet, internationally acclaimed. You can ask him not to overrun tests, he often uses the results for his HIV, Level 5 research to help others.
