National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2023 All communication & care was done to very high standards & all is much appreciated. National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2023 I felt very heard and validated by Dr. Gallant. She has helped me get answers about rashes I have been having for years and visited multiple other doctors about in the past without any tests being done or answers to what could be causing them. I am already feeling much better with my skin clearing up National Jewish Health Patient– February, 2023 Excellent provider who has great understanding of research findings and how they may apply to me.

National Jewish Health Patient– December, 2022 Dr Galant-Swafford was excellent in all ways! National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2022 I felt listened to and cared for and didn't feel at all rushed - definitely will be recommending her to others! National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2022 She was excellent. She came down to my level in explaining things. I wish every doctor could have her concern, friendliness and expertise. She was great!! show more National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2022 Most excellent National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2022 I thought it was there to ask about auto immune, mast cell etc. She thought I was there for allergies. I didn't get to ask my questions. I guess misunderstanding? National Jewish Health Patient– October, 2022 Excellent on all! National Jewish Health Patient– October, 2022 Dr. Galant-Swafford is outstanding. I am very happy I was assigned to her since my prior NJH Dr. Richard Weber retired. National Jewish Health Patient– October, 2022 She is wonderful at answering my questions & concerns. She's very caring. National Jewish Health Patient– October, 2022 Everyone at the Hospital made me feel like I was their only and most important patient, Whether it was obtaining directions or help in obtaining additional tests, I felt people went above my expectations. The doctors I saw were informative, listened to my complaints and spent as much time as I needed to understand my condition. I learned more at National jewish about my conditions than I had in my past encounters with my doctors at home. National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2022 Dr. Galant was fantastic with me! National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2022 Wonderful doctor. National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2022 *JGS is focused, knowledgeable & pleasant. I have full confidence in her. National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2022 I could write an essay on how wonderful a practitioner Dr. Galant-Swafford is: her intelligence, wisdom, compassion, and ingenuity all align to make working with her nothing short of amazing. She has assisted with diagnosis and disease stabilization, and as a result I'm living a fuller life with less limits, which is incredible. She empowers me to try different modalities, and gives me freedom to experiment with dosing (where appropriate) as mast cell activation syndrome is very individualized. She is responsive in the portal so that I'm able to get her guidance in between appointments, which helps me manage my disease better and minimize flares. Using the portal also helps us make our appointment times more efficient and meaningful, and her entire staff is always responsive and kind. I'm so, so grateful to have her as part of my care team! National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2022 Dr Galant is probably the best, most thorough, comprehensive, personable doctor I have ever visited. She made me feel like I was in good hands and that made me feel less stressed about this journey to diagnose whatever is going on with me. "We'll figure this out" she said. And I 100% have confidence we will National Jewish Health Patient– August, 2022 Doctor took time to thoroughly look over previous charts and history to get a better understanding of my complex issues. She had great understanding of her field of medicine. Gave great input and explanation of treatment options and referrals. She was very easy going and had great bedside manor. I enjoyed her personality. I will definitely follow up with her in future appointments and recommend her. Thank you NJH. I have full confidence in my care with you! National Jewish Health Patient– August, 2022 I appreciated the concern and time she took with me, tests ordered, change of meds, and Information given although it was apparent that she was rushed. This was my first appointment with this doctor after Dr Troung left NJH. National Jewish Health Patient– August, 2022 I was a little intimidated by the doctor. She wanted us to go on IvG therapy but it is so expensive. We have since seen a local doctor and they explained much more about the therapy and possibly how to afford it. It is difficult to always see a new doctor at national Jewish when we come each year. I do not feel like anyone really knows my son there like they did when Dr. Gelfand was there, yet dr. Gallant was obviously very knowledgeable and we so appreciate that. National Jewish Health Patient– July, 2022 Dr. Galant was extremely friendly, and expressed great interest in ensuring my issue was continuing to improve per our previous meeting last year. She always does an amazing job of explaining her thought process for proposed treatment, that is greatly appreciated. National Jewish Health Patient– July, 2022 Dr. Gallant-Swafford is terrific! I am delighted to work with her in sorting out my health challenges. National Jewish Health Patient– July, 2022 She asked a lot of questions to attempt to fully understand what the cause might be for my chronic runny nose. She explained all of the triggers of non-allergic rhinitis and drew diagrams which she gave me. She recommended changes in a nasal spray that was prescribed by another physician and explained that it was alcohol based and the two she recommended were water based. She also recommended using the neti-pot twice a day instead of once a day. I was very impressed that she took the time to explain everything to me and I have seen significant improvement with the changes that she recommended. National Jewish Health Patient– July, 2022 Again, expectations that my written history would be read in advance and that the appointment would be 90 minutes, combined to affect my experience. If the end had been less abrupt, I could've been told to communicate through the portal, and gain more understanding about what I needed to know. Instead, a relatively "Very Good" appointment ended abruptly and made it seem only "Fair". But independent of these complications, I'd really rate her as "Very Good" all around! National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2022 Dr. Gallant was so knowledgeable and sensitive to my history. She took the time to listen. National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2022 Dr. Gallant makes me feel like she cares about my issues and will listen to my worries and concerns.
