Nehal Galal, DO
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Medicine, General Internal Medicine
Dr. Galal’s clinical interests are in primary care, diabetes management and preventive medicine. She is a native of Queens, fluent in Arabic and is passionate about caring for the culturally diverse members of the Queens community. Patient education is an integral part of her approach to medical treatment and she looks forward to expanding health literacy both during office visits and through community outreach events in Queens. She most enjoys being a patient advocate and sharing one-on-one time with patients. She makes an effort to establish a strong rapport with her patients that allows them to share the concerns that impact their health. For her, delivering the best care not only involves knowing her patients well but also knowing their family members and the community they live in.
Dr. Galal is a proponent of addressing and respecting cultural differences in views toward illness and treatment as an important factor in improving outcomes. Having studied the disparities of access to healthcare in different communities, Dr. Galal is interested in working to improve access and quality of care delivered in all populations and especially within the Queens community.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
