Dr. DiPalma was great! I was a patient of her's for a long time. She accurately diagnosed me and ran all the proper tests. I had my gallbladder removed and she made sure I had the best surgeon and best care. Later on I went to find out I had liver disease and needed a GI who specialized in what I needed and a transplant surgeon. She set me up with the best of the best at Jefferson. She is so caring and sweet and dedicated to all her patients. Don't know what I would have done without her!

Dr. DiPalma has helped me through figuring out my 8 year old son's stomach issues when all other doctors brushed them off as nothing. She is a partner and will advocate to go to great lengths to leave no stone unturned. Tonight she even talked to me while food shopping to insure I was buying the best foods for my son's stomach issues. You don't find doctors who care like she does anymore. Highly recommend.

Dr.DiPalma is one of the best! Compassionate, caring, and has a wonderful bedside manner. My daughter loved her. We sought her care as a 2nd opinion (previous GI doctor failed to listen to all the symptoms). Dr. DiPalma listened to the entire history and discussed possible conditions thoroughly with us. Ordered new testing where the previous doctor refused due to ignorance. Her insightfulness in exploring all options finally resulted in a diagnosis (GI unrelated) that saved our child's life.

Dr. Dipalma was absolutely wonderful with our little boy. She took time to truly understand not only the problem, but his whole health history, and how that might factor into his care. She was kind and sweet, and her office followed up with us several times to make sure he was progressing well with his treatment. It's rare to find healthcare providers like her! I only wish she could be our regular pediatrician!

Dr. Dipalma is a comprehensive, thorough and warm physician. I felt very comfortable speaking with her about concerns I had about my child's health and felt I could trust her professional recommendations and advice. She took a lot of time during our initial appointment to gather a holistic picture of my child and even called me personally to share results of follow-up testing.
