THIS MAN HAS A MAJOR ANGRY ATTITUDE PROBLEM. Speak to other doctors and patients about him.

Also he writes on HIS website that he is BOARD CERTIFIED OPHTAMOLOGIST and SURGEON. Do your OWN search on CA Medical Board. He is ONLY certified as an anesthesiologist! And has NEVER even been heard of at the Board of Opthamology. Also he displays degrees from UCLA Jules Stein Eye Institute, NEVER ATTENDED!!

I go to UCLA eye clinic and MANy doctors say they have heard of him, but that is due to HIS OWN PR about himself. Then when ONE doctor of mine looked up Medical Board records (it is open to public too) found that he is NOT board certified to do ANY SURGERY on ANY EYES!

Also he has investigations on him about insurance billing fraud and Medicare fraud! Billing patients for procedures and visits they never had! One patient that is DEAD he is still billing. HE PREYS on senior citizens. BEWARE.

Dr Gallemore is a truly gifted doctor

AUTHOR: Mary T - (United States of America)

A website that purports to be in service of consumers has a responsibility to its readers to perform basic fact checking before publishing remarks like this one.

How does providing a venue for anonymous persons to post mendacious, libelous rants serve consumers?

I consider myself among those fortunate to have a retina macular specialist of Dr Gallemores caliber here in the South Bay.

As for as an angry attitude one can easily surmise that is simply the effect that Lauran of Palos Verdes Penninsula has on people.

Great Doctor

AUTHOR: sebastian - (United States of America)

This negative report is totally opposite of my experience with Dr Gallemore. He has basically saved my vision with office procedures on one eye and surgery on the other.Besides his medical expertise , he has a great attitude, always willing to answer questions and is available. I have spoken to him at 2:00 in the morning and he had the same pleasent demeanor as during the day.There are closer Drs but I wouldnt go to anyone else

DR GALLEMORE IS BOARD CERTIFIED AS AN OPTHALMOLOGIST AND IS A SURGEON

AUTHOR: investigate101 - (United States of America)

DR RON PAUL GALLEMORE IS A BOARD CERTIFIED OPTHALMOLOGIST
according to the ABMS  the overseer of medical board specialties. He is also a Phuysician and SURGEON according to the State of Californis Medical Licensing Board.

His credentials in the area of eyes is spectacular. Trained at Jules Stein at UCLA his training, practice of medicine and level of care is spectacular. He is the personal physician of our family including one member over 80 years of age. He probably sees more critically ill eye patiens in a day than most Doctors see in months.

Please remove this brutally dishonest portrayal of Dr. Gallemore.

The following is from the ABMS.org website
Physician Certification 
Name
Ron Paul Gallemore
 

MD
American Board of Ophthalmology
 Ophthalmology - General (General indicates Primary Certificate)

Ron Gallemore MD, PhD is indeed a board certified ophthalmologist

AUTHOR: Dr. Kathy - (U.S.A.)

If you go on the American Academy of Ophthalmology "Find an Eye M.D." website and search for Dr. Gallemore, he is listed with his credentials as a board certified ophthalmologist and has his retina training also listed. The Academy confirms this information before they allow ophthalmologists to be listed on their website.

http://www.aao.org/find_eyemd.cfm

Information from the AAO:
Education: MD, 1992, UC San Francisco
Residency: Jules Stein Eye Institute , 1993 -1996
Fellowship: Duke Univ Eye Ctr , 1996 -1998, Retina/Vitreous Surgery
Teaching Position: Clinical Faculty, UCLA - Jules Stein Eye Inst
Certification: Amer Board Ophthalmology - 1997
Recertification: Amer Board Ophthalmology - 2008

Please do not research physicians until you know the proper places to look. For an ophthalmologist, the above website is the proper place. Thank you.

Dr. Gallemore is an excellent physician

AUTHOR: Barry B. - (U.S.A.)

Dear Ripoff Report:

As an addendum to my previous rebuttal I have attached a signed copy of Dr. Gallemore's response to my informing him of the false defamatory statements made on www.ripoffreport.com by "Lauran" a patient who I believe received the same excellent care that I have received from Dr. Gallemore. I have spent many hours in Dr. Gallemore's office and countless hours discussing matters with Dr. Gallemore and have only observed quality care and attention from Dr. Gallemore and his staff. I remain shocked and offended by the inappropriate and false statements made by "Lauran" on this website.

Lauran's accusation regarding Ron Gallemore, M.D.

AUTHOR: Kayaksurfer - (U.S.A.)

Folks, let's be very careful about what we accuse others of. I DID heed "Lauran"'s warning and went to the California Medical Board to do my own research, as she intelligently suggested. When I did, I was disturbed to see that none of the accusations she made about this practitioner seem to be valid, according the Medical Board. He does not appear to be licensed as an anesthesiologist as Lauran claimed, but as a surgeon. Although Board certification is not specified on the Board's website, you cannot conclude that he is NOT Board Certified in Ophthalmology. Sounds like her reaction may have precipitated from an unresolved medical condition, or a personal conflict of some sort. My point here is that consumers need to take these comments with a grain of salt, and at least do further research to fully substantiate any claim of wrongdoing before they broadcast such accusations. I have a consultation with this man soon, and I will let you know what my impression is!

Dr. Ron Gallemore is a leading Board Certified Ophthalmologist

AUTHOR: Barry B. - (U.S.A.)

I am a long-time patient of Ron Gallemore, M.D., as well as an attorney. The accusations posted by Lauran regarding Dr. Gallemore are not only false, but amount to libel, slander and defamation of character. Contrary to Lauran' statements, Dr. Gallemore is not an anesthesiologist. In fact, Dr. Gallemore is one of the leading Board Certified Ophthalmologists in the country. Dr. Gallemore's educational background and medical training is second to none. He graduated from the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, one of the premier Medical Schools in the United States and graduated from the Ophthalmology Residency program at the Jules Stein Eye Institute, UCLA School of Medicine, where he was Chief Resident.

While at UCLA, Dr. Gallemore was the director of a Biophysics Laboratory specializing in the study of cellular mechanisms of macular disease and is currently a Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the Jules Stein Eye Institute and is the recipient of the Jules Stein Eye Institute Alumni Research Award. He is registered with the Medical Board of California and has never had a complaint lodged against him in nearly 15 years of medical practice. In fact he has been an expert reviewer for the Medical Board of California. This can be verified by a link to the medical board website at: www.medbd.ca.gov (specifically: http://www2.dca.ca.gov/pls/wllpub/WLLQRYNA$LCEV2.QueryView?P_LICENSE_NUMBER=78240&P_LTE_ID=790) where his license is current and is registered as a physician and surgeon.

Dr. Gallemore is also Board Certified with the American Academy of Ophthalmology and a fellow of the American Society of Retina Specialists. As a care provider for the Venice Family Clinic and the EyeCare America division of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, he also provides care for patients in need at no cost or at a reduced fee. Dr. Gallemore actively volunteers his time and services to the disenfranchised and impoverished. Dr. Gallemore has an impeccable reputation, has a premiere educational background and training, and is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist. The statements posted by Lauran are false and without merit. (She is clearly not in need of an Ophthalmologist so much as a psychiatrist.) I would recommend Dr. Gallemore without hesitation.
