Dr. Palla is a great choice if you are looking for a new general doctor. She really listens to what you have to say, asks good questions and does a thorough job of trying to figure out anything of concern. In addition she will personally call you with test results and goes through everything to make sure you understand the results and what you need to do moving forward. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Palla is fantastic and every great review I read before my visit with her is 100% justified! Not only is she a great physician, more importantly, she LISTENS to you, asks questions and treats you as a whole person, not just an isolated injury or illness. She is extremely prompt about follow-up and calling with test results.

Have been with Dr. Palla about one year now. Loved her on my 1st visit and like her even better now. She’s warm, down to earth and and I’m always impressed with her professional expertise. Couldn’t ask for a better doctor or better care! Wish I'd found her years ago.

You are never going to find a more compassionate Dr. than Dr. Palla, She cares very much about all her patients, and she will always answer every question you ask her truthfully. There isn't any other Dr. I would go to but her. It took me along time to get insurance, but I am very glad Dr. Palla takes my insurance. Go to her once, and I guarantee you will return!!!

She was great. It was my first time with her and she asked me every question imaginable, which was refreshing since no other doctor ever took the time. She sat there and listened to me and even comforted me when I started to have an anxiety attack. I couldn't or wouldn't ask for any other doctor.

For years I have been searching for a Doctor who is going to consult with me for more than 5 minutes and care about my health and concerns. I found that in Dr. Palla. She is a wonderful Doctor. She does not rush, she has a great bed side manner and most importantly she hears my concerns and does everything in her power to help figure things out. She is sincere and truly cares for her patients. I will not go to any other Doctor and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr Palla is thoughtful, intelligent and very thorough. I never feel rushed, she sits with me and talks about every aspect of my life that may be contributing to my concerns. I feel comfortable discussing everything with her and know she will make decisions with me for my care. Thank-you
