Continuing the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Dr. Galante recently made a donation to the Franciscan Health Foundation and their Breast Care Center to help them continue the fight against breast cancer and support women without the means to pay for breast health, such as a mammogram or biopsy. Every October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Galante sets aside funds from every breast procedure he performs to make his annual donation.

Dr. Galante is honored that he is able to make this donation every year, and feels this is an important cause. If you’re interested in learning more about the cause and who the donation benefits, you can visit the Franciscan Health Foundation or the Breast Care Center.

Welcome to Our Newest Esthetician, Stephanie

Our practice is elated to welcome our new esthetician, Stephanie Comet Pantelic, to our team! Stephanie comes to us with a true passion for esthetics, as shown in her journey up to joining us:

“As a young girl, I loved everything ‘skincare’ and ‘beauty,’ and I started practicing facial techniques on my little sister in my very own home salon (aka the girls bathroom). She was not always the most willing but a little bribery and big sister influence went a long way. I would come up with my most creative ‘magic potions’ for her facials, cover her eyes with cucumbers (at that time, unaware of the anti-inflammatory effects), and would have her steam with chamomile (I’m Greek and my grandmother said it cured everything).”

Stephanie comes from a family of entrepreneurs and a formal education in Accounting. However, as she studied and worked in Accounting, she held on to her passion for skin care by continuing her personal research in skin care trends, product formulations, and facial techniques. While raising her children, Stephanie’s path led her to working as a personal stylist and helping others with their wardrobe needs. She says the most rewarding part was helping her clients feel beautiful and empowered. It was that feeling that led her to revisit esthetics, pursue an education in the field, and join the Galante team!

“I feel privileged to be working with Dr. Galante and his staff offering skin care consultations and chemical peels of various depths. My goal is to provide each patient with a thorough skin care consultation and develop a customized treatment plan based on their desire for prevention, correction, and maintenance.”

Thank You for the Continued Support

And so much more! It’s all thanks to you, our supporters, patients, and friends. So, from the entire Galante team, we wish you a happy holiday season!
