Dr. Galiano was born in Quito, Ecuador to the late Pedro Rafael Galiano Vasquez and the late Micaela Hortencia Gallo de Galiano. A brilliant physician who practiced medicine in the Chicagoland area for nearly five decades, he tirelessly served thousands of patients at numerous hospitals and at his private practices.
