I agree with the comments posted here. I've been a patient of Dr Gallimore's for more than 15 years. I am actively seeking a new GP. Although he is well connected to the specialist community and a fairly competent GP, it take 3 to 4 weeks to get an appointment and I think this is unacceptable. I also agree that his wife should not be his receptionist. She is simply terrible. Many people that I've referred over the years have also changed doctors. He should retire and refer his patients to another GP.

I agree with much of the review which was posted on Nov 7. It's generally a 3/4 week wait to book an appointment with Dr. Gallimore unless you're willing to contend with his extremely rude and unprofessional receptionist/wife who will demand the exact details of your medical condition before deciding whether or not to provide you with an earlier appointment. I have no idea why Dr. Gallimore allows his wife to work the front desk knowing what a horrible impression she creates with his patients. Also, appointments with him can feel a little bit rushed although he does refer you to specialists quite readily.

I had been his patient for over 20 years and I have recently changed doctors. He needs to retire, as he is no longer serving the best interest of his patients. He is CONSTANTLY on holidays (which he is intitiled to- but it is way too often). Then, because he is always backed up from being on holidays, it then takes approx 1 month to get an appointment. (It takes 1 1/2 years to book for a physical.) On top of it, he has the rudest receptionist (his wife -Sheila) who expects you to tell her what is wrong, so he she can decide (in her non-medical opinion) over the phone if you need to see the Dr or not and when. They expect you to suffer for 1 month until you get to see him. She only has her husband's best interest at hand and not the patient's. She is rude and condesending! Dr Gallimore himself, is a dinosaur and just brushes off any thing you have that he doesn't know the answer to. There are one too many stories from other patients on this site of him missing something. Do you really want to take this chance? Horrible doctor. If he is over worked and wants semi-retirement hours and has too many patients and if he truly cared about any of them, he would do what is in all their best interest and ask 1/2 of his patients if they are willing to transfer to another doctor so that he can serve the patient he does have better and the patient's that transfer can get the quality of care (including a reasonable wait for an appointment) they deserve. He seems too cheap to want to give up patients and too cheap to want to pay for a professional medical receptionist who is professional -as opposed to hiring his awful wife (Sheila).

Superb Doctor. Very knowledgeable. Very well-connected to medical specialist community. I have been with him for 30 years and consider him to be a friend.

It seems like he only works 3 days a week, so getting an appointment can take a while. There are 2 receptionists, the young girl (daughter?) is very sweet and helpful, the other (wife?) is just about the most obnoxious person I've ever met. Rude and condescending. Why she's working the front like I have no idea. He's fairly thorough, but as I said, getting in to see him can often take a week or more "unless it's urgent", according to the reception.
