Dr. Galandiuk has always been professional, kind and courteous. Her bedside manners are second to none. She always shows sympathy and never dismisses my concerns, no matter how trivial. She always takes time to explain the medicine to where I can understand it and does everything in her power to make sure I am comfortable. Dr. Galandiuk is a wonderful physician and I feel lucky to have her for my colorectal needs!

The nurse who came and got us from the waiting room -lobby . She immediately jumped on us. " "your early" - she was visibly angry. She said it again when she harshly took my blood pressure. " your early! My blood pressure was read incorrectly as well. According to your text to my phone we had an appointment at 12:00. You also wanted us there 20 minutes early. Which we did. The receptionist was concerned and asked us again what time was our Appointment. We replied 12:00. She informed the nurse we had been waiting a long time. She took us to a room to wait and again said we were early. She also insisted on us not opening the door. So we waited -and waited- husband left room to use restroom. Same nurse yelled at me to keep our door shut while I poked my head out to look for husband. She was rude with the appearance of being unhappy with her job. We were shocked. Ostomy nurse was fantastic! So helpful- kind and knowledgeable!!! Of course Dr G was great .

Dr. Susan Galandiuk and Erin Bosley her Ostomy Nurse always have listened to my concerns and helped me. Erin Bosley has helped me with Edgepark issues and helped to get prescriptions filled at the CVS Pharmacy I always use to fill my prescriptions. Also Robin Dr. Galandiuk's Nurse has dealt with my insurance company provider to get my prescriptions filled with an appeal exception and CVS Pharmacy to get my prescriptions filled and makes sure that CVS will always have my prescription of Diphenoxylate Atropine monthly and the amount of pills which is 360 pills. Also make my insurance okay the amount of 360 pills than 240 pills that my insurance usually allows to be filled for a months supply. Thank you all of your for help with my care and any issues I have with supplies and prescriptions.
