VERY RUDE. He cut me off mid-sentence more than once. He never put one single hand on me. NO EXAM. When I asked if my symptoms could be arthritis, he asked me to show him my hands, then answered 'NO' without ever touching me or doing any blood labs. As I was looking at my notes to ask more questions, he got up and started to walk out of the room. I found a new dr. who did blood work & turns out, I indeed have arthritis - a genetic form that is VERY RARE. DO NOT RECOMMEND to anyone.

He is kind and listens to you. I have never felt hurried. His staff is very nice to. They are a great group of people.

Saw this doctor off and on over the course of 10 years and it was easy to get my biologic prescription filled. *he could never remember my diagnosis* He is not a doctor that spends time on your problems and referring someone was the biggest mistake I ever made. His staff over those 10 years-including a recent almost visit-was not friendly but he wasn't to them either. Also, be sure to call BOTH locations if you need an appointment because leaving a message (or 10) won't gain you a return call!

Dr. Palwai is very thorough in his examination and is very detailed oriented. He takes time to listen to his patients.
