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.
I feel like they go out of their way to accommodate my schedule. I almost always get the appointment time I want. I've already told my friends and family about the fantastic experience I had there. Their equipment was very advanced and sophisticated. I was very impressed. The entire staff looked so professional and well groomed. It seemed they really paid attention to their appearance. They put in the extra effort to make me feel valued and important.
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!
