"Dr. Galos personally called me on 2 different occasions to answer questions I left on his answering machine the night before. He also answered an email I sent him from the UK ( while I was visiting my daughter for 4 months) to assure me about several concerns I had in reference to my wrist which he had treated when I fractured it.
