    You are never going to find a more compassionate Dr. than Dr. Palla, She cares very much about all her patients, and she will always answer every question you ask her truthfully. There isn't any other Dr. I would go to but her. It took me along time to get insurance, but I am very glad Dr. Palla takes my insurance. Go to her once, and I guarantee you will return!!!

    I was very hesitant to go to a doctor that had not been recommended by a family member or another doctor. So glad I took the leap based on internet patient reviews. Dr. Palla was very friendly and warm and I felt comfortable with her immediately. First time I've ever felt that a doctor was truly going to be a partner with me in my health care. Very impressed with her knowledge of new developments in medicine and the suggestions she made for preventive care. Wish I'd found her years ago!

    She was great. It was my first time with her and she asked me every question imaginable, which was refreshing since no other doctor ever took the time. She sat there and listened to me and even comforted me when I started to have an anxiety attack. I couldn't or wouldn't ask for any other doctor.

    For years I have been searching for a Doctor who is going to consult with me for more than 5 minutes and care about my health and concerns. I found that in Dr. Palla. She is a wonderful Doctor. She does not rush, she has a great bed side manner and most importantly she hears my concerns and does everything in her power to help figure things out. She is sincere and truly cares for her patients. I will not go to any other Doctor and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

    This doctor sucks. She is very rude. She does not know what she is doing or what meds she puts you on. Run as fast as you can like I did. Never have I ever had such a terrible experience in my life till I came to this office. She is a bully and not professional whatsoever. I regret the day I went to her. I expressed what happened with my new doctor and my coworkers and they all gave me the same advice to never go back there and it seems like she doesn't know what she is doing.

    Dr. Palla has been my PCP for the past year and a half. She is a very skillful and knowledgeable professional. Dr. Palla demonstrates her sincere care and concern for her patients by taking the necessary time to ask and answer any questions or concerns.

    Dr Palla is thoughtful, intelligent and very thorough. I never feel rushed, she sits with me and talks about every aspect of my life that may be contributing to my concerns. I feel comfortable discussing everything with her and know she will make decisions with me for my care. Thank-you
