"It has been a pleasure to care for my patients, many of whom have grown up and become parents themselves, and now give me the privilege of caring for their children."
Dr. Jacqulyn Galloway
American Board of Pediatrics
Medical School: University of South Alabama
Residency: Emory University
After completing pediatric residency training at Emory University in Atlanta, Dr. Galloway was invited to serve an additional year as chief resident in 1989. She subsequently remained on faculty at Emory’s Egleston Children’s Hospital as one of their first pediatric general hospitalists. She additionally served as co-director of the pediatric medical student rotation and as assistant director of the pediatric residency program.
Dr. Galloway’s transition from hospital to primary care medicine was prompted by the illness of her own child and a need for a more predictable lifestyle as a mother. This was coupled with a desire to help her own patients reduce the need for ER visits and hospitalizations through careful office evaluations and patient education.
Relocation to the Virginia Peninsula in 1996 was ideal for Dr. Galloway and her husband to raise their daughter, now a young adult. They love the natural beauty of the area, beach trips and sailing. Dr. Galloway has participated in several international missions. These opportunities to serve have been joyous and have also enhanced her appreciation of practicing in the CHKD system – an organization dedicated exclusively to the well-being of children.
