Ratings for Dr. Richard Gall
I had seen him many years back and he ran late, was abrupt and seemed rude. In the end he made the right calls and referred me on when needed. I have an appt coming up and know he may again be rough around the edges when dealing with patients, but I hope I get the answers and care that is needed.
Dr. Gall's office staff was about all that was good. I was warmly greeted, and prompltly sent into an office, where I wited quite some time. My appointment lasted less than 10 min. He asked my symptoms, and as soon as he heard the word sleep his mind was made up. It didn't matter that I have difficulty swallowing and it has caused gagging and vomiting for the past year and a half, or that I said it caused issues with falling asleep, not sleeping. He took a two second look at my tonsils and said they weren't the issue. Have a good day, some one will contact you about a sleep study. Completely neglegting that I still have trouble swallowing and it may not be my tonsils, but he didn't check anything else, and would not answer my questions. I found him rude and unfriendly
I went to see this doctor about a year and a half ago, and am finally getting in with a different ENT this week. I have always suffered from nasal congestion and I snore. I have large tonsils, a narrow and high palate which I told my GP probably has some affect. When I was sent to Dr. Gall, I guess my doctor had noted those things in the letter, because Dr. Gall looked at my tonsils and told me "they aren't that big, I'm not impressed". I did not come here to impress you, I came to discover what the best solution for my problem might be. He proceeded to act as if I was wasting his time, and although he did shove a camera up my nostril, with no warning whatsoever that it might be painful and he went to do the second one and my eyes were already watering he said "Oh yeah, it will make your eyes water.", I don't really trust his opinion on what he saw one bit. I cannot wait to get in to see someone else and see if there is actually something he may have dismissed. I have since done an at home sleep study where it was determined my sleep was disturbed by these things, but not enough to be considered sleep apnea. And when I told the doctor I spoke with at the sleep clinic what he had said about my tonsils 'not being that big' she almost laughed and asked who I saw, without rememebering his name off the top of my head, I described where his office was and how he talked to me and she said "oh I know who you saw". THAT says it all.. he is a terrible doctor and does not care about finding a solution for his patient as he sent me on my way with no solution at all.
Both my husband and I go to see Dr. Gall. He has been a huge help with my husband's ear problems, and has tended to ear, nose and throat issue with me. I have always found him very efficient and thorough and does what he needs to do on each visit we have. He gets to the point and makes the suggestions and the rest is up to us. This is the way it should happen. Great Staff and efficient use of his and our time. Great experience.
