08/09/12 2 2 2 1 After extensive searching for a doctor who did tummy tucks with lipo, I decided on Dr. Gallico. While the initial surgery went well, I noticed right away that at the drain sites there was a bad smell and discharge. Dr. Gallico removed the drains and declared me fine. After a few days, the discharge increased out of all my drain sites, one more than others. Dr. Gallico diagnosed NECROSIS. It took 8 weeks to heal. I live 2 hrs away from Dr. Gallico's office, and had to drive repeatedly back and forth for follow-up care, once waiting 3 hrs for my appt. I am fine now, a few years down the road, but have excessive scarring where the drains were. I have recently asked for the reports from the follow-up care for a hysterectomy scheduled later this month, as my ob/gyn needs the full picture behind the incision. There is absolutely NO mention of my post-operative complications anywhere in my file. NONE. The secretary has refused comment. Disconcerting, to say the least.  Respond

02/01/12 4 4 5 5 Our experience with Dr Gallico was an A+!! He was professional, had a great bedside manner and really "knows his stuff"!!!! He did an AMAZING job on my son and we are thankful to have met him. Many physicians can seem very arrogant but Dr Gallico was down to earth, warm, funny and incredibly talented in his field! Not only is he an amazing physician but he is a true artist in his field of specialty. Thank you Dr. Gallico!!  Respond

03/11/11 4 4 5 5 I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Gallico late June of this year. I was a bit skeptical with surgery in general, but had hated my nose and thought it was worth a shot. I had heard great reviews about him, but you hear great reviews about a lot of doctors, and things do not necessarily turn out well. It's been about four months since surgery, and I am THRILLED with the results. I could not have asked for any better. Dr. Gallico did exactly what I had hoped for, and more! He is very realistic in the initial expectations with your nose and does not promise what can not be done, but I was surely surprised that it came out this wonderfully! I recently got a haircut that I had always wanted to, but had not been able to because my nose would have looked even more prominent with it; now, it looks wonderful! Thank you Dr. Gallico! He is truly an artist.  See Responses

01/04/11 4 4 5 5 After I got out of surgery at Mass General, the intern who observed Gallico called him "a master." It's true. I hated my nose for decades but was afraid of botched surgery. With Gallico, I didn't need to worry. He's an artist.  Respond

16/02/11 4 3 4 5 I had a mommy makeover performed by Dr. Gallico in October and I am beyond thrilled with my results! I had a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast implants and Botox and the results met, and exceeded, my expectations. Dr. Gallico is truly an artist and it's clear to me why he is one of the best in his field. His staff leading up to and including my surgery was fantastic....extremely professional and accommodating. I have recommended Dr. Gallico to everyone and will 100% go back to him for future needs.  Respond

27/01/11 5 5 3 3 Dr Galico and his staff are very nice and friendly. They make you feel extrememly comfortably. I had rhinoplasty and BA. Although, he is probably a skilled surgery I am not happy with the results. My nose tip is too high and my breasts are too far apart. One breast is slightly larger than the other. For the amount of $ paid I would expect better results.

15/06/10 1 1 1 3 I got breast augmentation and months later when they dropped,I noticed one of them was higher than the other and also filled smaller. I contacted him and he told me he would correct this mistake of his. At the time of my next surgery i was under the impression that he was going to fix this matter and lower the implant that was up higher. After my surgery I noticed I still looked the same. The nurse and Dr informed me that the implant would take 4-8wks to drop. After 6 I contacted him, his response to this was that I was careless and irresponsible and he wasn't going to do anything to fix his mistake. Now I am left with lopsided breasts. He is a greedy careless dr. Do not waste your money with him, all he cares about is the benefit of himself and not the well being of the person undergoing surgery. I am so embarassed to be naked because of this and he refuses to fix this after he told me he would. Now I am left with lopsided breasts and even more scar tissue.

26/10/09 4 4 5 5 Dr. Gallico took a melanoma off of my husband's inner thigh, 20 years ago. My husband was in his medical training, at the time, and we found the melanoma in its earliest possible stage--we were lucky. Dr. Gallico took a 6 x 9 cm "chunk" out of my husband's leg to insure "clean" (cancer-free) margins. He did a beautiful job, cosmetically, especially considering the size of the excision, and there has been no recurrence. Now, my husband is in his mid-40s, with two children, and we are quite indebted to Dr. Gallico and his surgical prowess. I would trust him to operate on my children, my husband, or me. He is supremely gifted.
