Patient reviews for Dr. Nader Galal
Dr. Galal was kind, empathic, attentive and thorough. He gave me words of support and guidance with a treatment plan that aligned with my goals. His office was clean and positive with a very helpful and kind receptionist.
This was my first time to see Dr. Galal. He made a very good first impression. Very calm, professional, and balanced. Asked good questions. Will see how it goes, but so far feeling very good about the new relationship
It was amazing! We met for about 90 minutes and talked about my history. His method of addressing the issue is long term, he didn't just write off a prescription and send me off. He did his job as a psychiatrist and a better job than my psychotherapist.
The only thing Galal wants is your co payment.
Dr. Galal was thorough, kind and easy to talk to. I appreciated his comprehensive and non-judgmental inquiry into my history. Very professional.
Dr. Galal is okay, he does a decent Job but it is hard to get an appointment and even harder getting a prescription re filled by his office.
Great experience! Very friendly, talks through everything simply and i’ll Definitely be back!
Dr Galal has a low key demeanor, but was very thorough in his questions and still easy to talk to. He seemed attuned and insightful. My first experience with him seemed very good and based on that limited interaction I recommend his services.
I choose this psychiatrist after reading the great reviews on zocdoc. Dr. Galal was praised for taking the opportunity to speak with his patients while providing guidance. During my visit he did just that. I highly recommended this professional.
Really enjoyed my visit. He was very professional and thorough in his line of questioning. Would highly recommend for anyone who needs an evaluation.. I will be going back regularly.
I think he was ok
It was an inititla visit after having two other doctors cancel on me at the last minute. He seemed to truly want to get to know as much as he could about me. I have to go back in a week and will have an update on my second visit with him. So far I'm very comfortable with him and look forward to him helping me.
It was my first time seeking psychiatric care. I was nervous, but Dr. Galal immediately put me at ease. He was very insightful and kind. Highly recommend.
Solved my problem, offered some very good, actionable, specific advice
Funny guy. Can't wait for future appointments.
Very accommodating and understanding. Office staff are also very helpful. I definitely recommend Dr. Galal!
Very thorough, I felt like he was really trying to find the root cause of any issues I may have and gave me a lot of options on how to remedy the symptoms.
He was very thorough. I'm glad I chose to see him.
Top notch. Can't go wrong with this guy.
I've been seeing Dr. Galal for over a year. I had to cancel my appointment at the last minute last week because I was out sick from work, so Dr. Galal's office charged me a $125 cancellation fee. Seems steep given that I was sick and I rescheduled as soon as I could. Always seems like a hassle getting my Rx refilled with this doctor too. Time to find a new one!
Very friendly and straight to the point. Recommended some books for me to read. Would recommend !
He listened and had good insight.
Very pleasant and professional. I like that he is willing to go slow and investigate all avenues to determine what is the source of my problem.
Dr Galal was professional and caring. He spoke intelligently, taking careful observation of what I told him. I had zero issues and left satisfied I was with someone who listened.
Very good doctor ! He actually listens and is willing to help.
Secretary played religious music and was so, so mean. Doctor seemed uncaring. Office will not help you deal with your insurance company.
I've been seeing him for 2 and a half years now. He's great and never over-prescribes. A real doctor who takes the time to understand me.
rude, was on his phone constantly and insulting. Never again
would not go again. tell u anything?
Dr. Galal is a very knowledgeable psychiatrist who has the best interests of his patients at the forefront of his mind. Having been in the field for many years, he has a wealth of information and experience to offer many options when beginning treatment, in a relaxed and confidential environment. In addition to medication management, he also takes the time to incorporate other holistic approaches to treatment. I feel confident that I can rely on Dr. Galal to help me receive the treatment I need, and continue to provide maintenance treatment in the future.
love Dr Galal's assistant and the doctor himself. he has been amazing with my son. thank you
I have now been seeing Dr. Galal for nearly 2 years now and I am so glad that I chose him. He is always friendly and listens to what I have to say even on unrelated subjects when I start to ramble. He also makes a point to remember things about our visits that I may mention as a side note such as a trip I am planning, things I am reading, and even inquired about a certification test I had been studying for and wished me good luck on the test. He also talks with me about ways to improve my life by means other than medical such as different exercise programs and the best places to run around Astoria or the city. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Galal to anyone who is seeking a psychiatrist who is more than a just a prescription filler.
Although I had to wait a bit (20mins) before I went in, I was happy with Dr. Galal's professional manner (which I consider human and not an average doc's greater-than-thou approach) and look forward to continuing to see him for my psych-related needs.
Patient , understanding , trying to help me the best , dedicated , given me lot of time .Very helpful and hopeful . Has great knowledge , easily understands the problem
Dr. Galal was very good. He honestly came off as cold at first but eventually we settled in and had a great chat. He asked me a lot of questions which I thought meant that he cared and wasn't just trying to hand me medication and get me out the door.
He was very thorough in his questioning and hopefully pinpointed the problem instead of just treating the symptoms.
Dr. Galal is much more caring than other psychiatrists I've seen. He shows interest in whole health instead of just prescribing pills and seeing you out the door.
Very relaxing atmosphere. He was attentive, professional, and honest. Looking forward to my next visit.
Dr. Galal was quiet, laid-back, and easy to speak with. He readily went over the allotted time for the session so we could finish talking and he left me with clear guidance the next steps to take. Overall exactly what I was looking for.
He listened carefully to my issues & seemed interested in helping me. Short wait as well.
He is a great doctor. Great listener, and has plenty of advice to offer.
Very friendly, attentive, actually listens and provides great feedback after considering all the details and variables before suggesting a plan of action. I have been extremely happy with Dr. Galal. Bonus is his office manager/secretary she is very welcoming, always considerate and responsive.
He seemed high. His bed side manner was less than professional and he was very rude. I later started seeing Dr. Bhutia in the same office. He is amazing and I have been working with him for over a year.
I had a really great experience with Dr Nader. I was sad when I switched insurance and had to switch doctors. He's highly recommended.
He's incredibly thorough, listens patiently, sympathetic, organized and professional. I highly recommend him because he actually wants to help.
I was met with very unexpected charges and absurd refill policies unlike any psychiatrist I've seen before. I'm not completely comfortable with their payment policies. May not be back.
Dr. Galal was very understanding, patient, and collaborative on finding a treatment that fits both our concerns. I will definitely seek his professional help and advice for years to come!
Dr. Galal was thorough, thoughtful and knowledgeable. He provided me with various alternative ways to approach the issues that I presented to him. He took his time and documented everything in order to figure out a diagnosis. He was honest and humble; did not jump to any conclusions and suggested further follow up. I would have liked him to be a bit more interactive and less reliant on the list of questions on the computer, but that is more of a personal preference and may have interfered with his ability to be as thorough as he was.
