I too had the privilege of being a patient of Dr. Gall from the time I was 19 until he retired. He called me every week from Palm Springs to check on my medical status leading up to an important surgery near the end of his career. No other doctor I've known has treated his patients in such a caring manner. The last time I saw him at my post-op appointment, I told him how proud I was to be one of his patients and that I knew that I had received the very best care because of him. I was so glad that I had the opportunity to tell him this. I loved him very much and was so sad to see his obituary. My deepest sympathy to his beloved family.
