    Dr. Galdi is an excellent doctor. I was suffering from severe knee pain that was keeping me from living a normal life. I saw Dr. Galdi and he suggested an injection in the knee which I agreed to and after a few weeks I had tremendous relief and have been getting around so much better. I have suffered with this pain and have seen many doctors with no relief and on my first visit with Dr. Galdi he knew exactly what I needed. I would refer Dr. Galdi to friends and family in a NY minute. My gratitude to you Dr. Galdi~God blees you.

    So far Dr Galdi has been great!!!! He tried preventive measures before he opted for potential surgery. I really appreciate his demeanor and patience. He doesn't rush like so many doctors do. After being around doctors for many years, i have faith in him and his dianosis and training. I would definitely recommend him and have!!!!!

    Excellent bedside manner and an obviously very skilled surgeon. He is very personable, which is sorely lacking amongst surgeons, and I would highly recommend Dr. Galdi to anyone seeking a skilled and extremely personable orthopedic surgeon. The office staff is also extremely nice, and the waiting time is very short, if at all. 5 stars!!!!
