Just found out today that Dr. Gall had passed. He was beyond exceptional...
So sorry to hear this news. He delivered two of my boys and remained my doctor until his retirement. I have waited for hours to see him, and would not change a bit! God Bless...

I was so sad to hear of Dr. Gall's passing. I had the privilege of working with him when he started his medical practice on Maryland Ave. in St. Louis, 1958. He was a wonderful doctor and a good friend. My sincere sympathy to all his family in your loss of dear Dr. Gall.

I was so sorry to hear of Dr. Gall's passing. He was my doctor for years until my insurance changed. He was a wonderful doctor, always had a joke or two on my visits. He was my daughter's doctor for several years also. He was a great man and will be missed.

Thank you, Dr. Gall, for always being a caring, and professional doctor-I would not have had my beautiful daughter if it had not been for you, and your expertise. Now, she is a doctor herself. You are truly one of a kind. Barbara (Katcher) Crawley

A better doctor than golfer and a very wise man. Very smart and extremely kind and forgiving, even when we didn't deserve it. Rest in peace.

Rest in peace Dr. Gall. I was also a patient of Dr. Gall for 40 plus years and he was my all time favorite doctor. Dr. Gall raised the bar with his compassion, humor and love of his medical profession. Dr. Gall will be remembered fondly by all who knew him, he was one of a kind.
