Love Dr. Palley, but the office staff are horrid. My entire family saw Dr. Palley for 9 years. We skipped a few years of check ups just to avoid dealing with the office staff and when I made an appointment and was forced to miss it do to unexpected travel, I was told I can't reschedule. My son has seen Dr. Palley since he was a few days old and now because of 1 missed appointment I have to find a new doctor. We will miss Dr. Palley.

Dr Palley seems to be a decent doctor but in my 2 visits to her office I've waited 2 hrs past my appt time before being seen. During my last visit while I was waiting in the room to be seen I listened to conversation between the doctor and other employees talking about coffee for 10 mins. I had already been there 1 1/2 hrs and was not happy sitting and waiting while they talked about coffee. The Dr was going in rooms to see other people that had just been brought back and I was already waiting
