I am being discharged from a program and am seeking a provider for continuation of care. Can I be seen?

While our addiction patients are of top priority, sometimes we are not able to accommodate them within the one week window, status post discharge. Please call the office to inquire about openings, as this can change frequently.

If we are unable to assist you, we can provide other recommendations, if needed.

Dr. Galliano treats patients 18-65 years old.

Can the doctor prescribe me medication while I am waiting to be seen for my initial evaluation?

If you are in crisis, please seek immediate medical attention.

If non emergent, contact your primary care physician or an outpatient service to further assist you.

This is standard for all new patient appointments for verification purposes only, meaning nothing will be charged that day. You will always be notified when a charge will be made and are welcome to change your form of payment when in the office.
