Ratings for Dr. Robert C. Gallagher
December of 2012 had to have a 7 bypass and a valve repair. Dr. Gallagher saved my life. I was at 20% heart function at the time of surgery. I am now at 55% and all bypasses are working great. Couldn't have had a better surgeon. Bedside manner and sharing of knowledge were exemplary.
He replaced my calcified mitral valve in 2005 with a cow valve. No sternum bone broken; instead, entered with an incision under my breast. Healed fast, no complications, pain was minimal. He is what a heart surgeon should be; perfect! I'm still doing great six years later. Thank you to Dr. Gallagher
I am a 32 year old woman who discovered my condition in November 2009. I chose Dr Gallaggher after meeting with a surgeon from Yale as well.I could not recommend Dr Gallagher any higher. He is calm, knowledgeable, and does not treat you like a faceless mass of flesh. He treats the whole person, spent hours with my husband and I and explained complex concepts into digestable parts. He was never arrogant or condescending, as I experienced with other surgeons and Cardiologists. He fixed my mitral vavlve with a small incision, and it is healing beautifully as I type. I had the surgery on a Thursday morning and was released from the hospital by Sunday afternoon. His staff, including his anethesiologist, was 100% professional and kind.
