This, my first visit with Dr. Palma, was a short and to the point consultation. However, the atmosphere and attention of the staff was quite welcoming for a first time patient and Dr. Palma instills both a sense of his professionalism and competence but also a human touch that is most welcome these days.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Palma. He was professional, caring, and listened well. His receptionist and nurse are helpful, patient, and professional. Everything was explained in detail and they followed up with me via telephone to find out how I was doing and to confirm the next appointment. Dr. Palma is a thorough, competent physician and I feel comfortable in his care.

Super efficient doctor's appt. As soon as I filled out the new patient forms, I was called- didn't have to wait at all. Dr. Palma discussed what my stomach issues could possibly be, answered any questions I had, and referred me to an allergist. Already have a follow-up appt scheduled for after I see the allergist to discuss next steps after test results came back so we could begin to rule things out.
