Emily R Gallagher, MD, MPH


"During my residency here at UW/Seattle Children's, I quickly learned that providing excellent medical care requires a team. As a fellow in Craniofacial Medicine, I was fortunate to join a dedicated team of providers from various specialties working together to help patients reach their full potential. Whether meeting parents after a prenatal diagnosis, an infant with a newly diagnosed craniofacial condition, or an adolescent who has been through a lot of treatment, I am passionate about helping my patients and families find solutions to problems and improve health outcomes. I am inspired by my patients and feel honored to work with such courageous and resilient children."
