Great doctor but awful office staff. I had overpaid them, and have spent eight MONTHS! trying to collect my overpaid amount. I even had Aetna call them, twice! I recommend speaking directly with their office manager rather than a billing person!

The office is pushing patients through like cattle... Overbooked, not enough time for the Dr to prepare for followup visits, always a long wait and never an empty chair. When I went back for my followup after my STAT blood work, Dr. Palau acted like it was the 1st time he'd seen me (it had only been 5 days since the previous appt), hadn't even seen my test results, and his staff had to request them (which took another 20 min, after I'd been waiting in the waiting room for over an hour). The staff questioned me about getting a flu shot... I finally conceded and then they let me leave without giving the shot to me. After 3 visits I ended up being referred to another type of physician elsewhere and it took 2 weeks for his staff to get my records sent over to the new Dr., after several requests from myself and the new Dr office staff. I would never recommend this office to anyone critically ill... It's just a $$$$ maker, no concern or compassion...

Staff was distracted. Dr Palau was busy and dismissive. He's a terrible listener. Disappointed to see the lack of compassion and understanding that is essential in health care.

Lost my trust – Aug 21, 2019

I have been going to Dr. Paula for approximately a year. Dr. Paula appear to be a nice guy, but several mishap took place over the year I was seeing the doctor. I have been taking a particular medication for approximately 14 years, and was taking two tablets daily. However, upon on seeing this doctor him or his nurse wrote a prescription stating take one tablet per day. His staff is not courteous, caring nor friendly. Prescribing wrong dosage can cost a person their life or serious complications
