I have been visiting this office for years and the only negative is the constant exposure to advertising, this is a doctor's office! The TV and tablet advertising does not belong in a place where people are expecting quiet and compassion.

Dr. Michael Galbreath is an excellent job. We were there yesterday. I got an appointment in good time and I'm a cancer survivor. And I'm also suffering from cancer and some of the things I would right now during all this time. He helped me a lot. We're setting up oncology and did some very good, very thorough research on everything. I highly recommended. And I'm going to be very happy to have you for my new doctor. His dad was my former doctor who is retiring the end of this month. Dr. Galbreath. Thank you.

I have no problems with the Lambert office in terms of parking, but I have serious issues with PIH and they're charging for parking these days. I'm on a fixed income and I had to also take my father several times to see his doctor for surgery and we spent a lot of money just in parking alone in one week. Not happy about that.
March 05, 2021
Dr Michael Galbreath was extremely professional, knowledgeable and a great listener. I look forward to seeing him and referring him to others. He made a difference!!

March 04, 2021
I don't know how you can approve it. But your phone system really, really is bad. I don't think that waiting on the phone for 40 minutes to try to get through or getting transferred to the wrong place is a good system at all. You need to address it. Somehow you need to go through the experience yourself and figure it out. Thank you.
March 03, 2021
Great first experience with Dr. Michael Galbreath ... I'd be happy to work with him again.
March 02, 2021
Professional on time, knowledgeable, and as enjoyable as treatment can be.
