What People Say About Dr. Ariel Palanca, MD
Reply
The office was always very prompt, friendly and helpful. One time I arrived 30 minutes early since I was coming from another appointment that finished early. Instead of making me wait, they did my X-rays and got me in and out early. Dr. Palanca also was helpful and gave me context around my injury. No complaints!
