WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. I was very impressed with Dr. Gall initially. I was in an emergency situation and had to have neck surgery the next day. I wish I would have had more time to research reviews of past patients and get a second opinion. It's been almost three months since the surgery. I started experiencing pain again about three weeks ago. Now I'm experiencing severe pain again. Over the past few weeks I have made several calls/visits just to be "dismissed" by Dr. Gall. It's his opinion he "fixed" my neck by operating on me in Jan and there is no way I could be in pain. I called in tears asking for pain medication to get me through the night (tomorrow I'm having a myelogram). He refused and frankly, treated me like I was some drug addict or something. If I wanted drugs, I could simply go downtown and by some on any street corner. But, I don't want to do something illegal. After my test results tomorrow - no matter if something is truly wrong or not - I WILL BE FINDING A NEW DOCTOR.
Dr. Gall performed surgery on my lumbar region in 2010 and I couldn't be happier. He is very straight with you and sometimes that bothers people, but personally I don't like to play games or waste time. Dr. Gall is a wonderful doctor and will get the job done quickly and you will be glad you did it. I put the surgery off for over 6 months and could barely walk.....when I woke up in recovery my pain was gone! If you are looking for a doctor that will socialize with you and make a lot of small talk, this is not your guy. But, if you want to be treated fairly by a doctor that has well above average intelligence and will fix your problem so you can get back to your family and life....he is most definitely the right neurosurgeon for you!
I am a 57 year old man who thought that my back would last forever. After a trip to the Emergency Room, the MRI showed a herniated Disc. Dr. Gall told me in the Hospital, after I asked him, that if I wanted to try epiderals and Inverted therapy that I should try it. I was glad to hear that because I would always wonder if I really needed surgery if I didn't try other options. After 3 epiderals and inversion therapy, I decided that I needed surgery. Dr. Gall spent a lot of time going over the MRI and telling me exactly what was wrong and what the relief would be. I was able to stand up 6 hours after the surgery and I went home after spending 1 night in the hospital. Dr. Gall visited me in the hospital and we decided that he was 100% correct on all of the previous diagnosis. He's a very nice guy, obviously brilliant (went to Harvard Med School), and he has time to talk to you. My appointments are always on time and he even met me when his office was closed on New Years Day to help me with a prescription.
After 2 days from the operation, I have 90% of my mobility already and the pain that I previously had in my leg is 100% gone. I am not a fan of operations but if you have a herniated disc, I wouldn't think twice about getting it done by Dr. Gall. I couldn't of asked for a better result. I would give him 5 Stars. Also, he was recommended to me by a friend of mine who is a doctor.
