I've been seeing Dr. Palacio for 3 years for symptoms of menopause, including migraine. He has has worked with me on hormone replacement therapy and takes time to answer questions and explain the latest research. However, from the start his office staff have been very difficult. They rarely answer the phone, give confusing and inaccurate information about insurance and the doctor's availability, and make mistakes with billing. Most recently I received my first bill for two appointments I had over a year ago. The office mis-billed my insurance, lost a referral from my primary care physician, and billed me so late that I cannot deduct the cost of the visits for tax purposes. I understand that he has new billing staff, but too late for me. I would recommend Dr. Palacio for someone wanting HRT advice who is willing to wrestle with the front office staff to get it, but personally will not be returning to this practice.

Dr. Palacio was very warm and approachable. He had a flip book of the female anatomy that we reviewed and discussed potential causes of my condition, and the surgical options available to me, from least-to-most invasive. He took the time to clearly explain the procedure options, and the risks and benefits of each in a clear, easy-to-understand way, without being condescending. He was up-to-date on best practices. I felt confident that I was in good hands as I was being rolled into the OR.

So thankful I found Dr. Palacio!! He is kind, compassionate, completely thorough, and demonstrated total interest in me and my concerns. Although a total abdominal hysterectomy could not be avoided, it went extremely well. My recovery has been fantastic! My family and friends marvel at how well I am doing. :-) Yvonne

The impact Dr. Palacio has had on my physical & mental health has been life altering. The issues I had suffered with affected how I felt about myself as a woman. He took the time not just to talk with me & listen, but he also extensively researched & together we found solutions for relief. I had tried many female doctors before him & they were dismissive to my issues. Dr. Palacio never makes me feel rushed and he treats me like a person, not a patient. A bonus is his caring & friendly staff.

Dr. Palacio genuinely cares about his patients. He always has a smile on his face and puts his patients at ease. He takes the time to explain what's happening in my body during my exams. He keeps up with the latest research. I appreciate that he believes in the use of Hormone Creams for women in their menopausal years. Dr. Palacio is the only Doctor I know of in Bend that will prescribe creams for hormone replacement therapy. I highly recommend Dr. Palacio for women of any age.

First the good- he can see you quickly. The bad- two times I have needed a prescription refill, it has taken over a week w/mult. attempts made by me and my pharmacy w/no response. Their vm asks patients to allow 72 business hrs. (9 days?!) for them to get around to phoning in refills. Also, had lab work done, lab informed me they sent results to Dr. Palacio. It took over a week and speaking to two very rude employees to discuss my results. Asked for them to be mailed never received.

I have never been to a gynecologist that I have been so appreciative for. He is super kind and explains everything in detail and makes you feel relaxed. I had A Mona Lisa procedure that has changed my life sex life after menopause and so thankful Dr. Palacio has passion to help women in this area. So thankful I found such a great professional. He offers quarterly talks on all aspects of what is the latest in gynecology.

Dr. Palacio took extra time to answer all of my questions. It is also very apparent that he is focused on making his patients comfortable. The actual exam went very fast and I wasn't asked any uncomfortablely weird questions that gynecologists have normally asked me, we just had a conversation without any form type questioning. I would recommend him to anyone (and have) and am just really grateful to have found a doctor who treats his patients with such respect and care. Thank you Dr. Palacio!
