August 30, 2022
The male nurse that took my vitals was very unprofessional. He had me step on the scale to take my weight. Then led me to room. When he took my temperature he handed me thermometer and asked me to insert the instrument in my mouth. When he asked me questions about why my visit he took notes and then asked me what was my weight that showed on the scale. He should have noted that from his memory or his notes. Also him handing me the thermometer . I've never experienced this type of service. As for Dr. Michael Galbreath he is excellent.
August 30, 2022

Dr. Galbreath is a fine Doctor, we are very pleased on how he has treated with such care, thoughtfullness and understanding.
July 14, 2022
When I called for the appointment and explained that I had COVID and was interested in Paxlovid, the anti-viral medication. Im 67 years old. The female who I spoke with discouraged me from asking for the meds because "it was hard to get." I almost did not schedule the appointment since your staff left me with the impression that it would be futile to ask for the meds. I kept the appointment, the doctor prescribed Paxlovid without hesitation. 24 hours later after starting the treatment I feel a lot better. Please instruct your staff to keep their opinions to themselves.
July 13, 2022

Michael Galbreath took the time needed for me to discuss my issues and concerns and he listened to me with care, understanding and I feel he will do very well at this practice. He was able to answer all of my questions and help me understand what we need to do to get my health back in check.

I recently became a patient of dr. Michael Galbraith. I had Donald Galbreath previously. It was the first time meeting with Michael Galbraith on the 20th and because of that I am neutral when giving feedback because I don't know him well enough yet, it would be too soon to comment on his skills and care. He did show knowledge, respect, and was professional. The office front desk staff are never pleasant to deal with. The nurses are caring and respectful.
October 15, 2021
Yes, I was very, very satisfied with the interview with my doctor, Dr. Galbreath, Michael Galbreath. This is a first time that I get to meet him. We spoke to each other here at home, over, using a tablet and I was satisfied with, you know all his answers and made me feel very, very comfortable and I will continue to see Michael Galbreath as my doctor from now on. Thank you so much.
