Dr. Palacios is warm, knowledegable and worth recommending, but I cannot because his office staff is horrendous. The front desk person/bouncer is extremely curt.

Dr. Palacios - is incredibly patient and kind. He listens to what you say, asks a multitude of questions and is spot on in diagnosis each time I have seen him. He makes sure you are not in pain and knows how to give cortisone shots without any pain. Highly recommend this practice.
