I have nothing but respect and honor for this man that brought me into this world 46 years ago and took care of me most of my life! A true doctor in every sense of the word, and what every doctor should be today!
Dr. Gallenstein was my first doctor. He will be extremely missed. I used to see him regularly as a child, my family and I moved away, army life, and I returned to Cincinnati as an adult in 2003. I got sick and my grandmother said we needed to go to the doctor, when we got to Dr. G’s office I thought surely he wouldn’t remember me, all of the patients he has, I was sure. Sure enough he proved me wrong,he even still had my chart on a 5×7 card all of my history was on that card, and information that wasn’t was in his head. I have very fond memories of Dr. Gallenstein, he is very much a part of my childhood. I used to love going to the doctor because Dr. Gallenstein would give me the ‘pink stuff’, amoxicillin. I loved taking that medicine. My thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones. Please know that he will live on forever in our hearts.
We are so appreciative of all that Dr. Gallenstein did for my mother, brother, sister and wife over his career. He was a wonderful, caring, compassionate man and will be greatly missed. Our hearts, thoughts, amd prayers go out to all of you. Thank you for sharing this marvellous man with all of us.
To Edwin’s Family and beloved Wife,
My deepest sympathy to you all for your loss. I loved your dear Edwin like my own Grandfather. I’ve been seeing him since I was a child and he always went the extra mile to go out of his way for me at times. He knew my also deceased Father and we talked many times of Family his and mine. I did have the chance to tell him in person that he really meant alot to me and he will now be truly missed! Carrie
condolences to the family from two of his patients of over 40 yrs.
Dear Mrs. Gallenstein and family, The loss of your husband is both a personal loss for each of us, and a collective loss for our community. When my children were young, our family received compassionate care from dear Dr. Gallenstein. I enjoyed listening to his life experiences as an Airborne pilot. I will pray for your family as you mourn this precious loved one.

“Don’t let this throw you. You trust God, don’t you? Trust me. There is plenty of room for you in my Father’s home. If that weren’t so, would I have told you that I’m on my way to get a room ready for you? And if I’m on my way to get your room ready, I’ll come back and get you so you can live where I live. And you already know the road I’m taking.”
