MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I am not one to critique harshly but this is the only place I'm given the opportunity. I tried in my hometown to complain to some medical organization but this business is so protected. I did go for several consults before I decided on Gallegos. He seemed competent. My surgery was rushed as it turns out. Post-op 6 months I complained about rollover in lower abdomen. I was told lipo would help at little cost to me. When I waited for alloted time, the office told me I would have to pay what lipo would cost had I only that procedure- about 2200$ When I came home from overnight hospital stay, I hit a bump and Dr. was nowhere to be found--not on his cell or by hospital. I was only supposed to pay 500$ for overnight and Pres. Hospital tried to hit me with an outrageous sum! I complained to his office--got no help and had to sort it out myself all while healing!When I did complain of rollover all I got was defensive attitude from Gallegos. He also complained to me personally about a patient who wasnt happy w/her tummy tuck and stated she really needed a shrink. Since then the word is out by several other ladies I've spoken to, as well as several other offices I've consulted with to "stay away from Gallegos."
