” I have been a patient of Dr Colm O’Flaherty for many years. I have always found him to be very thorough in his diagnoses. He is very kind and a good listener, he has a sense of humour and has the ability to make the patient feel at ease. Dr O Flaherty has no hesitation in referral to Consultants, when and if it became necessary”,

“I have been a patient of Dr. John Lally for many years, and cannot speak highly enough of both his service to me and the practice as a whole at Ely Place, Sea Road, Galway. Dr. Lally always takes the time to talk, catch up with what is going on in my life, thereby gaining a full understanding of all the contributory factors that might be influencing my health. He has never failed to let me speak as long as I want or need to, always listening carefully and offering sound and careful judgement as a result.

On a personal note, I also value his preference to use as few drugs as necessary. So many doctors these days are tied into the pharmaceutical industry, eager to keep the drug company reps happy, but Dr. Lally is solely concerned with his patients’ health and well-being, for which I am truly grateful.

As well as Dr. Lally’s excellent work, Mary and her crew in reception are amazing. There is always a slot for an appointment, whenever I need one, which is worth more than anything. Also, their service, smiles and flexibility are second to none. If I call for a printout of some blood tests, they will be there waiting for me. If I need a form filled out, they will help.  

I have already recommended the practice to three friends, and cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Lally, Mary and her colleagues.”

“I have been very happy with the service provided by the GP practice over the years to my family. Access to appointments, child friendly waiting area, professional empathetic consultations and ease of access to follow up care mean I continue to use this practice when I need to. I am certainly delighted to recommend this practice to other families”

The Hosty Family;

“I’m 21 years old and  I have been going to Dr Lally since I was sixteen. He is always very understanding of my medical conditions and as a young woman, I find it very easy to talk to him about ‘embarrassing/ personal’ issues. He takes no chances with my health and proof of this is when he sent me into hospital and referred me to a specialist, which I am very grateful for. He always prescribes appropriate medication and always refers back to previous ailments; e.g. flu, sinus etc. All in all I find him to be a fantastic doctor and I’m glad he’s my GP”,

” Dr Lally, I love going back to your surgery, even if its only for the chat!” I am a recovering cancer patient. In my first stages, it was very hard for me, my doctor was there for me through thick and thin, always very professional and took no chances. If he couldn’t take care of me I was sent to the doctor that could. So Dr Lally, I thank you and your team of girls for all your help caring for me. Please God, I’ll have years and years more visits to you, many thanks”,

“I couldn’t thank Dr Lally enough for his professional attitude as a doctor. And of course,  I think so highly of him because he shows the same duty and care to my wife and daughter. The staff in his surgery are also very friendly and helpful”,

“Great staff make’s a great practice.  I always felt welcome from the first time I walked in the door. I have been a patient of Dr. John Lally for the past number of years. You are never in the waiting room too long but I find he’s never in a rush when you get in to see him and explains things in a way that even I can undertand!   A friendly, professional service which brings me back everytime”
