Patient Comments (2)
in Midlothian, VA |
Dr. Palen is the best primary care doctor I have seen. She takes time with her patients, explains things and really listens to your concerns. I recommend her to everyone!
Kill Devil Hills, NC |
Too often she focuses on herself, rather than hearing what the patient is saying. Medical care is compromised. She can become aggressive in her interactions.
