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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
