I have a doctor visit with Dr. Galvez every 3 months to check on my blood condition. I was sick had a cold. He was concerned, he check my glands asked questions. Advised me to get flu shot. In my eyes Dr. Galvez always goes above and beyond what is expected!

December 20, 2019 2:32 PM

I have been seeing Dr. Galvez for 10 years and he takes very good care of me.

December 20, 2019 2:32 PM

I have an appointment w/Dr. Galvez every 6 months. I see someone on his staff, at least once a month because I am on a blood thinner.

December 19, 2019 9:59 AM

Wonderful!

I would recommend Dr Galvez to anyone who requires treatment for Leukemia. He has been my provider for a few years and has done nothing but absolutely given me the very best treatment and outcome I could possible hope for. I know that if not for God and Dr Galvez I would not be here today.

November 6, 2019 9:51 AM

He is a good listener and I feel he is looking to making my health as good as possible.

Excellent provider except for the guy receptionist that is rude back in June when we were there.

November 18, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Galvez is absolutely one of the best. My husband X has CLL w/ITP and Dr. Galvez has cared for him for a long (since X left). My husband would not be here today without Dr. Galvez's help. He is one of the most caring individuals that we deal in terms of medical needs. Anyone who has him for a doctor is very blessed.

November 17, 2018 6:00 PM

Always a pleasure to visit with Dr. Galvez. he is so smart, calm, kind and humble. I already recommended him to a few friends and family members. God bless him and his team.

Dr Galvez has been my oncologist for over 5 years. He has gone above and beyond with helping me to stay alive. I could not ask for a more caring and compassionate doctor to deal with my leukemia as well as discussing my other health issues. (I also am a cardiac patient, have diabetes, dementia, spinal disc degeneration/arthritis and have had multiple TIAs).

August 13, 2018 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Galvez, always makes sure I understand everything.

August 12, 2018 7:00 PM
