“I was suffering from one sinus infection and bronchitis issue after another until Dr. Gale read my CT scan and diagnosed blocked sinuses and enlarged turbinates that were preventing proper drainage. I scheduled surgery and immediately felt better. It has been 7 months and I have not had sinus problems since! Thank you Dr. Gale!”

“After losing 45lbs, I felt my face was a little droopy. Dr. Gale gave me some filler for cheeks and I love it! I didn’t want to have a plastic look nor look fake. He listened to my concerns and gave me the perfect amount of filler!”
