Dr. Gallagher treated me very professionally and with respect. She is an asset to your facility.
Dr. Gallagher is an excellent physician. The nurses, technicians, and office staff are kind and attentive. So by the time Dr. Gallagher sees a patient she has been furnished with a wide range of information gathered by the prep team - which she very deftly weaves into a discerning and well though out diagnosis. Quite impressive. She then discusses what options one has if a problem is detected.
Intelligent, clear communicator with good bedside manner.
I felt good when I visit my opthamologist. My eyes are very important and I do have issues to resolve about my eyes.
I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Gallagher, and thank her for her good care.

It is good care, but the days run long waiting for the testing. Still I understand that is part of the process.
very pleasant and cordial staff and doctors-while this visit was not an emergency, it was for a problem and I was able to get a fairly quick appointment. I would refer this doctor to anyone who needed that particular expertise.
I always enjoy my visit with Dr. Gallagher
Dr. Gallagher was excellent! She did a thorough exam, listened to my comments and questions, and provided answers to all of my questions. She immediately established a great rapport with me and made me feel very much at ease. Dr. Gallagher also was very detailed in her explanation of my eye condition.
Dr. Gallagher is my primary Optham. I see her whenever I have an eye problem, and also regularly every six months. I owe her a great debt in that she diagnosed the tiny tear in my retina that would have eventually taken out vision in that eye, and managed to get a surgeon to see it that day, and then had them schedule a surgery. She is really competent.
All care was outstanding
very satisfied with my treatment.
It all good
All good,never had a problem.
Dr. Gallagher was a new provider for me. She won my respect and trust.

Dr. Gallagher and her staff are fabulous. I have had to get 2 laser procedures in the past 6 months for retinaopathy and I received the best care possible. They make me feel comfortable and put my mind at ease as everything was explained in detail. From the receptionist, the technicians and Dr. Gallagher, this team provides wonderful care and are very genuine people.

I was very pleased with my visit and didn't have to wait long at all.
I just moved to Pennsylvania and I needed a Retina specialist so some of these questions do not pertain to my health care. I found that Dr. Gallagher and her entire team were courteous, knowledgeable and helpful.
I wanted to get in to see a retinal specialist as soon as possible after a concerning finding on my routine eye exam on Thursday. Thursday evening I worked a 12 hour night shift and slept through my alarm on Friday morning. I woke up at 1pm which is when my appointment was scheduled. In a frenzy, I called to see if I could still come in for my appointment, even though I would be an hour late. The office staff said to come on in. When I arrived, everyone was extremely friendly. No one seemed to be irritated that I was behind schedule. In fact, the staff validated my concerns for my possible retinal tear (which turned out to be a small, detached retina). Thank you all SO much for making this visit such a great one...and thank you for squeezing me in on a Friday afternoon. I am so much less anxious over the weekend knowing that a specialist has examined my eye and that we have a care plan in place. A+.
Dr. Gallagher is excellent
Dr. Denise Gallagher is an excellent retina specialist. She put me at ease rather quickly after testing me to see if I had any retina tears or a detachment. Denise's friendly manner and the information she provided about my eye problem was very appreciated. I wouldrecommend her to my friends and family.
My visits are always pleasant, insightful & great for my health!
Dr Gallagher is a great doctor & has provided me over the years with excellent care!
This was my first visit to this location and provider.. Very satisfied.

This visit was for a second opinion. I was extremely impressed with the courtesy, friendliness, and caring attitude of everyone. My questions were answered. I will return to this Center.
excellent all around
Dr. Gallagher was very friendly, did not seemed rushed, listened to my concerns and offered clear explanations.
Very good care providers.
As a first time patient, I was very pleased with the care I received. From my initial phone call to schedule an appointment, where I was treated with respect, to the speed with which I was able to see Dr. Gallagher and to the way I was treated by the staff, I could not be more satisfied. I plan to visit this office in the future for all my eyecare needs.
Dr. Gallagher is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and efficient.
