He could have better bed side manner but seemed to really listen and ordered tests to help get to the bottom of my pain.

Waited 3.5 months to see a rheumatologist. I was referred to Dr. Palma. How I do regret this. Lacks compassion, knowledge and bedside manners. This is so unacceptable, especially with how long it takes for patients to get in to see a specialist. We deserve better treatment.
