Dr. Galbraith is board certified in Family Practice in both the USA and Canada. Even though many patients are referred to him for his expertise in Sports Medicine, Dr. Galbraith remains dedicated to continuing Family Medicine for a small panel of patients and strives to provide top-notch care for his patients. He is currently NOT accepting new patients.
Dr. Galbraith provides broad-spectrum family medicine services, including newborn, pediatrics and adolescent care, men and women’s health, care of the elderly, chronic disease management, and preventative care.
He also provides minor surgical procedures, including skin excisional biopsies, suture repair, fracture management and casting/splinting, injections, circumcisions, EKG interpretation, abscess incision and drainage, wound care, toenail excision, cryotherapy of skin lesions, ultrasound-guided injections, and ultrasound aspiration of cysts and seromas.
Like most physicians in Lethbridge, Dr. Galbraith no longer sees patients in the hospital. And, he doesn’t follow patients admitted to long-term care facilities or nursing homes. If a patient moves to one of these locations, their medical care will be transferred to the medical director of that site if the patient is unable to come to the clinic for appointments.
We follow “best practice” guidelines for prescriptions - antibiotics and narcotics are not prescribed without an office visit.
