Ratings for Dr. Anthony Galea
Thank you again Dr. Galea. I've been suffering from a disc herniation for over a year and a half. I've been to countless of doctors, PTs and chiropractors. Initially, some stated I was only suffering tightness, others stated I should just continue with physio excersies. Dr. Galea appreciated my concerns and realized my symptoms were not getting better, he always advised to get additional MRIs and EMGs done to further narrow down the issue. Recently, the latest MRI stated the worst, it was time for surgery. Dr. Galea recommended I go to St. Micheals, which I did. The surgery was a success. I don't know where I would be today without his direction and care.
You had to wait sometimes but that was because he was dealing with priority patients. Sometimes it was others waiting for you because you are the priority. This is a doctor of the highest knowledge and skill level. There is a reason he is now in the world over as the healer. I know many who all him their career and physical well-being.
Just bad! Presented with back problems after discectomy- he looked at MRI and never examined me in the two years I wasted with him. Luckily found the best sports doctor after Galea who diagnosed my problem and treated me- now 2 marathons , and multiple triathlons later so glad I didn't follow his advice.
Dr. Galea treated me many years ago and was not only compassionate and knowledgeable, but he is a doctor who does not let you fall through the bureaucratic cracks. He did the appropriate assessment and examination of my neck and back pain and ordered tests to diagnose the problem. More than anything, he was optimistic about my recovery and set me up with an amazing physiotheraptist (sports medicine). I went to a few doctors before having the correct diagnosis and treatment from Dr. Galea. He was
I saw Dr. Galea a few years back. I was experiencing excruciating constant nerve pain for more than a year in my left leg and hip. My GP req’d an xray which returned normal results and decided it was unnecessary to investigate further despite my throbbing pain which also kept me from being able to sleep. A friend recommended Dr. Galea and I had an appointment within a month. Within the first 15 minutes of my appointment with Dr. Galea, just from listening to my concerns and symptoms, he agreed something was not right (I was young, fit and active). He ordered an MRI on my spine (lumbar) and I had an appt within the month. MRI results showed I had an 8cm tumour inside my spinal cord. He referred me to the best Neurosurgeon in the area and within 2 months I had surgery to remove the tumour which luckily turned out to be benign. Dr. Galea is the most compassionate and empathetic doctor I have ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and has access to the best specialist contacts. I cannot praise Dr. Galea enough. We are extremely lucky to have him in our health system.
His receptionist is rude and his wife is worse. Can't fake a smile , we see right through that. His wait time is next to impossible and if it's an emergency both ladies will still make you wait months. Galea is compassionate and very helpful and has my family with many injuries. I would just love to fire both of the female and throw them in the snow. Garbage !
He is fantastic!I have seen many many doctors including travelling to the mayo clinic and they could not come up with any options for my knee pain. He reviewed my reports and right away I noticed something that has been present in every MRI reporter over the past painful 4 years. After attempting a few different things with no success he pushed to have a benign growth removed. The procedure was just done so I'm not sure if it was successful or not as it was just done but upon follow up with him he told me we would not give up until we came up with a solution. There are not many doctors like him. If every doctor could be like him it would be a much better medical system. He puts his patients first . He looks at every case with new eyes and such incredible bedside manner. I cannot say enough good things about him. Because of him I know I am going to get my life back pain free. I have dealt with many arrogant doctors this is not one of them. Very kind and knowledgeable.
Dr A. Galea is the best in the world I was young and fit bodybuilder and I asked him for extra push he told me NO you don't need it well yes I was upset at the time but he is honest and I miss him he lessen not like the Doctor I have now wish he still my doctor
