Verified Patient Reviews
Great office. Everyone was helpful and they got me back on time, which I feel like is rare. Would recommend in a heartbeat.
Best Doctor in DFW!
Visit was more than I expected. No wait at all. Very timely and Professional. I will be back !!!!!
He is a great doctor who is very thorough with each visit.
Great medical care, but please get rid of the TV in the lobby, or at least turn of the sound. I had a very peaceful wait until someone came from the back and turned on the TV. Other patients were put out as well. Everyone has a phone they can watch stuff on if they are bored, no need for a TV in the waiting room anymore.
Dr was great! Very professional with a sense of humor that put me at ease. Looking into switching him to my Primary Dr.
Very professional and actually spent time talking to me. I felt he was not rushed and that he cared.
I was really impressed with the staff and there performance very friendly and caring people I enjoyed my first visit and yes I would recommend Dr Luis to other people
After my first visit to see Dr. Palacios (five or six years ago), I recommended him to my best friend. She, in turn, told a co-worker, who also recommended him to a family member. He is kind, knowledgeable and patient. And he is truly happy when I make progress with regards to my health issues.
Very caring Dr. and extremely helpful. I am very thankful he is my Dr.
Dr. Palacios always takes the time to listen, evaluate, and then discuss options.
This visit was a consultation concerning some upcoming treatments. Dr. Palacios is caring and concerned. He gave me excellent advice. Very thorough.
The wait was a bit long, even though I showed up early for my appointment, but Dr. Palacios was worth the wait. He diagnosed my shoulder injury quickly with some quick pushing exercises. He answered all my questions regarding what information the different pushing exercises gave him. He then did an ultrasound of my shoulder to confirm his diagnosis, while again explaining everything we were seeing on the screen. Bottom line: Friendly. Knowledgeable. Thorough.
He was very easy to talk to with a wonderful bedside manner. He made me very comfortable and I will definitely see him again. He was also mindful of keeping my costs down by looking at generic options for prescribed medication.
I was concerned about the procedure but everything went flawlessly.
Excellent doctor and bedside manners, as always!
Excellent,y muy atento el doctor, Mi hijo y yo salimos muy contento con el trato de todo el personal.
Dr Palacios has always been professional during my visits. He explores all remedies in finding solutions to any heath issues I am experiencing.
Dr. Palacios is always genuinely nice and so easy going. He's actually a doc that you don't mind seeing! I go to him for physicals, sports injuries, and medical illnesses - he does it all!!
Took the time to cover all of my concerns. Very thorough and easy to talk to. Made me feel like I was the only patient he had.
Dr. Palacios is one of the best! He listens patiently, gives thoughtful feedback and respects the patient's opinions. He takes time with the appointment so the patient does not feel hurried or like he is in a hurry to get to the next patient. I highly recommend this doctor.
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Palacios. I live in west Plano and refuse to change doctors because of the quality of service I receieve. Highly recommended I do have a complaint about Zoc Doc not updating my information. The website requested me to update everything so that it will be complete when I got to my visit. This was not the case. I had to update everything again when I got to my appointment. It also created a new patient profile and caused issues when I checked-in.
Dr, Palacios is an awesome man. He has taken extremely good care of me, for years. He brought me back from the dead, with a chronic condition. Now that my mother is elderly, I've changed her over to Dr. P. as her primary care physician, because I trust him so much and want her in the best hands as possible!! His lead nurse, Annalee, is just as special and efficient as he is. I love these guys!
Awesome bedside manner, very nice guy. Immediately felt comfortable. His nurse was great, very sweet and helpful.
Doctor is a quack. Knows diseases/illnesses via textbook but doesn't understand how a patient is really feeling.
The best in the business.
Dr. Palacios is a caring doctor who takes the time to listen to your concerns. My husband and I were so impressed with him that we followed him from his practice at SW Medical to his private practice in E. Dallas. We live approximately 1 1/2 hours from his office but feel so strongly about his medical expertise that we will drive the distance to see him. HIs staff is great and very polite and kind. The wait time is minimal. We really like the fact that we don't have to go to a professional building or hospital building to see our doctor. Great location. HIghly recommend Dr. Palacios.
Dr. Palacios is great. Treats the problem and is so friendly.
As always, Dr. Palacios was an excellent doctor to visit. He was fast, friendly and thorough!
Dr. Palacios was very thorough with my annual physical and took his time to understand my medical history.
We love Dr. Palacios! Another quality wonderful visit for my son's annual check-up. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Palacios!
Dr Palacios was wonderful. Friendly, informative, and knowledgeable. I'll definitely go back.
He is the best Dr I have had in a long time. He really seems to care.
Very patient, worked with me directly to ensure that my splint was done correctly. Not just a slam/bam appointment.
My visits with Dr. Palacios are always excellent. Whether its a check up yearly physical or something more severe he's always very professional. Friendly, comforting and overall and excellent doctor. can always tell what's wrong right away after only asking a few questions, I highly recommend any one scheduling a visit if needed.
I cannot brag enough about the amazing LACK of wait time. I was taken back at my appointment time on the dot! I waited less than 2 minutes in the room for the nurses/doctor to come back and see me. Dr. Palacios was patient with me and kind, but also didn't waste my time. I will definitely come back!
Dr Palacios is great. He takes the time to talk with his patients and has a very laid back attitude.
Very smart, knowledgeable and interesting doctor with accompanying staff, 5 stars
First, let me say that I love Dr. Palacious. His office staff, on the other hand, leave a great deal to be desired. I've had a billing issue that I've been trying to resolve with no success for over 3 years now. I've contacted their office/billing manager repeatedly, had my insurance company talk to them directly twice, and talked to their off-site billing company twice. Each time, I'm assured that the error is on their end and that it will be resolved. It never is. Each month, I get the same bill with the same issue despite the repeated assurances that it's been resolved. Then, there's the matter of my visit yesterday for a simple blood test (that should have taken less than 5 minutes). I waited for over 45 minutes before finally having to leave before having my blood draw to make my next appointment. In that 45 minutes, the office staff had not given me my insurance card back or let me know anything at all about the delay, other than assuring me that it would be only a few minutes when I first checked in. At this point, I am so frustrated with the the practice that I'm strongly considering finding a new GP. While I love Dr. Palacios, my irritation at the incompetence in his office staff continues to grow.
Dr. Palacios is one of the most caring doctors I have seen in the last 20 years.
Adore Dr Palacios. Wish he'd been my doctor my whole life but better late than never. He truly is the very best-in every way. Trust him completely and so grateful for him.
Dr. Palacios is the Best Medical Doctor of his kind. His consumate attention to detail and unflinching commitment to delivering The Best Health Care is truly unique.
Dr. Palacios is very pleasant and easy going. Office visits are easy. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!
Always a good visit. Staff and Doc P do a great job !
Dr. Palacios consistently takes the time to listen before diagnosing. He discusses the possible courses of treatment with you to get your preferences.
As a repeat patient of Dr. Luis Palacios, I am so pleased with his professionalism and his personality. His concern for his patients is genuine, and his care is exceptional. The entire experience with the office staff, nurses, and physician was very positive. I would recommend his practice to all my friends and family members. Dr. Palacios is a lifesaver!
Dr. Palacios is the best!
Great Doc for sure!
Dr. Palacios diagnosed my problem and provided advice to treat the illness. Excellent doctor with patients.
He is really nice and easy to talk to.
I love Dr. Palacios and each and everyone of his staff. They are very welcoming from the moment you walk into the door and until the moment you leave. There is hardly little to no wait time and the office and patient rooms are kept exceptionally clean. Dr. Palacios is very courteous and attentive with each and every patient and answers all of your health questions and concerns completely.
Dr. Palacios is terrific. He cares about his patients and has a very nice manner. He is also highly trained and has practiced in academic settings. I can recommend him unconditionally.
My visit was great. I always wait to see Dr. Palacios, he is the best and I have a lot of faith his judgment.
The staff was very sweet at the front desk, nurse was good and Dr. Palacios was great! He was very thorough on a routine/annual check up. I had a few concerns based on a health-related incident and he was very thorough in checking on symptoms and an ECG. This was the first time I'd seen him and will continue to go back to him as my PCP as long as I live in Dallas. He's great...
I was very happy with Dr Palacios. He was thorough, detailed and very caring. In fact, all the staff in the clinic are very kind and professional. Wait times were reasonable - both visits I've been in to see the dr with a short wait approx 15 minutes. I love the online system. Had a little trouble getting it set up, but once it was, it made it easy to get test results, communicate with Dr. Palacios and to discuss my treatment options. Highly recommend Dr. Palacios.
Very informative, listened to what I said, gave suggestions, gentle touch, almost painless on procedure.
Great! I need to come back and do blood work, I haven't been able to do it yet. I should be able to come back on Sunday!
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Luis Palacios and his staff are awesome!!! I have been seeing him as my PCP since moving to Dallas from Boston 16 months ago. My 83 year old mother has been seeing a different PCP for probably 40 years. I recently convinced her to change to Dr. Palacios. She too is very satisfied. He's not only a great doctor, he's a great person. His staff is also terrific! They go the extra mile. When I went for a follow-up today, I brought my mother, because she wanted to see him. They arranged for Dr. Palacios to see her at the last minute, so I wouldn't have to bring her back another day. Can't say enough good things about him. Love, love, love!!
Dr. Palacios has been, and continues to be, my favorite doctor and I will see him as long as I stay in Dallas!
Awesome he is very nice!
Dr Palacios is pretty great! He listens, has great bedside manner and thorough.

Very comforting and easy. Felt confedant talking to Dr. Palacios.
Dr. Palacios is very professional and he really cares about his patients he has been our family doctor for a long time. I highly recommend him.
I would never come to this office again or recommend to anyone. I booked my appoinment online and everything up to when I was in the waiting room was great. I received a text reminder with the address and I thought that was wonderful. My experience afterwards was the worst. Once arrived I was told that they no longer take my insurance and that it was told to them 3 hours prior to my appointment. It would of been nice not to have to drive and take my time to get to a place that they knew would no longer take my insurance.
First time visit, so far so good. Some of the front desk staff are a little unprofessional.
First-time patient visit. This was the easiest, most efficient doctor's appointment I have ever had! Props to Dr. Palacios and his office staff!
Dr Palacios is my regular doctor for years. He's very professional and is always smiling. He is great.
He's the best
Dr. Palacios is wonderful and has always taken care of my family.
Dr. Palacios is the greatest, as are each member of his professional staff. I highly recommend Medical Partners of Lakewood. They are terrific!!
Very professional. Friendly efficient staff.
No better family physician in Dallas. Or DFW. Or anywhere, really.
Yearly physical is never a fun experience but Dr. Palacios and his staff are efficient, professional and friendly. Never had a bad experience and will continue to keep this office as my primary.
Getting your yearly physical is never a fun experience but Dr. Palacios and his staff are efficient, professional and friendly. Never had a bad experience and will continue to keep this office as my primary.
For an appointment on Christmas Eve, the office was busy, but I was never hurried. Dr Palacios took the time to help me with my injury and to answer any other questions I had.
Excellent, very helpful visit and personable physician.
Went in for routine physical and blood panel, everything was done quickly and efficiently. I was out of the office in about 45 mins.
I've been a patient of Dr. Palacios for years now and I've always been happy with the care that he provided, but today was by far the easiest time I've ever had. I got online around 9 AM, scheduled an appointment online for 10:30 AM, arrived at 10:10 AM and was taken into a room almost immediately. I spoke with a nurse, Dr. Palacios came in about 5 minutes later and I was out of the office in less than 30 minutes. Dr. Palacios is caring and compassionate, I'd recommend him to anyone! The only mediocre part of the whole experience was his nurse. She seemed very disinterested. Maybe nursing is not for her.
Dr.Palacios was great. So pleasant, professional and personable. I didn't wait at all. I was a new patient, but I will make him my regular primary care physician.
The office is very soothing and calming him. The staff were also very supportive. And Dr. Palacios has a fantastic bedside manner.
He's great !
He's the best!
Great doctor and very nice Really liked him
Everyone in this office was so courteous and friendly.. Awesome job
He is so kind and friendly, never seems hurried, always concerned about my welfare.
there is no better
I usually have a good experience here but my most recent experience was fantastic! I didn't have to wait more than 30 seconds for anyone and was in and out of there in 20 minutes. Nice job!
Dr. Palacios is the best family physician we've ever had. He is highly recommended.
Dr. Palacios listened to my concerns and provided me with the information I needed. He was easy to talk to and updated me on current treatments for my issues. I'm pleased to have a great doctor in our neighborhood and to not have to drive somewhere else.
Dr.Palacios is a rare excellent unpretentious simpatico neighborhood doctor. He practices adjacent to a grocery store and a Starbucks. Not having to deal with a parking garage or a medical center alone makes your visit with DrPalacios and his efficient staff the closest you can get to an old time doctor house call. .
He's great as is Analee.
My first visit to the office of Dr.Luis Palacios was a good one. I was having my annual checkup and he was thorough with his approach. He examined me from head to toe and very few doctors will take the time to do that. I will continue to see him when needed. I wish more doctors had his bedside manner and approach to medicine.
Palacios is awesome, thanks again!
Visit with the Dr. was great. At the office 1:30 Appt was @2 not called back till 2:35. 15 min late picking up my boys from school completely unacceptable.
Dr. Palacious is kind, confident and thorough!
Great first visit! Reception staff was pleasant, the Dr. Palacious was great and the X-ray tech was great as well! It's honestly the first Dr. Office I've been to in years that I feel good about going back to.
The best doctor in Dallas. Spends a lot of time with each patient
Doctor Palacios has been our family physician for many years now. He likes to take time with his patients and get to know them as people.
Great Doc! Glad to find a good doctor in my neighborhood who has weekend hours. Very personable, explains and listens well.
I've been a patient of Dr. Palacios for years and love his professionalism and has a great staff. I would certainly recommend him to give him a try. I like that he takes the time to listen to you and doesn't make you feel rushed.

Always an outstanding experience at this office.Dr. Palacios listens, takes his time, and offers top-notch care.
He is very knowledgeable and an excellent profesional.
Dr. Palacious listened to my symtoms and story before he did a physical assessment of my injury and determined a diagnosis. I appreaciate his patience with patients!
Dr. Palacios listened to my problem, did the necessary tests to figure out what might be the cause of the discomfort, found the culprit and made a suggestion for treatment. All that in a professional and comfortable manner.
This Doctor and his staff were genuinely concerned about my well-being. Very encouraging.
Very caring and understanding. Listens and answers question, no rush.
I like him more every time I see him. Having X-Ray capabilities in his office really improves diagnostic time, and saves my insurance company money.
Great. He is a very knowledgable physician who spends the time with you needed to serve your healthcare needs.
One of the very few doctors who listens and does not seem rushed. Took the time to listen to all my concerns and explained my treatment options.
My visit with Luis Palacios, MD went well. He answered all my questions. Yes, I would recommend Him. Thanks. Rick
Actually we came for immunisation advice and were seen by a nurse. She was fabulous and printed out information for us (as did Dr P. on a previous visit on another matter) She suggested we wait until my daughter was 11 yrs for her next round of booster shots so as to get the right dose. I would recommend this clinic to anyone with children. The staff have been exceptional each time.
He helped find a diagnosis to what was going on with me.
Dr. Palacios is very approachable and easy to talk to.
Visit went great. Physician is great and staff is very attentive.
One of the best doctors I have been to.
Always professional, always prompt, always courteous.
Very nice and very professional. Good listener and did not make me feel like he was in a hurry at all. So glad to have a great Dictir right in the neighborhood !!
Exactly as expected.
First visit with this provider and very impressed.
Great doctor! Very friendly and willing to help you, which is rare to see in doctors today. He did not rush me in and out of the office and answered all of my questions very thoroughly, even gave me suggestions for some issues that I have been dealing with for awhile now. I already recommended him to some of my friends and will be sure to have my family see him in the future.
Dr. Palacios took the time to ask me questions and to answer all of my questions. I was thoroughly satisfied with his professionalism.
Dr. Palacious is great physician. He is very easy to work with and I trust him completely. If you are looking for a primary care doctor, he would be a great choice.
Dr. Palacios is a kind soul that knows an astounding amount from distinct disciplines of medicine. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, he is the best physician I have ever been to and would recommend him to anyone.
Excellent. Felt very cared for and not rushed. Very happy to find Dr Palacios
Best doctor I have seen in dallas
Dr. Palacios was great, I would definitely see him again. The office staff however was not very helpful in explaining or detailing out the costs for the visit as that is incredibly important for someone without insurance. And it was over an hr to see him even though I got there 15 mins early to my appointment.
Best GP I've ever had, serves our whole family from Granny down to the kids. He takes the time to listen and explain every time. A kind man and a wonderful doctor.
Dr. Palacios is a great doctor. Very helpful and genuine interest in the care of his patients. However, when calling to follow up on the appointment the receptionist was a little rude.
Dr. Palacios is very professional and friendly. He listens to your concerns and give good advices. The office staffs are courteous and answer all of my questions. The office space is clean and the environment makes me feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend this physician and the practice to anyone. You will leave satisfied.
My first visit with Dr. Palacios was outstanding in every way. He and his staff were very courteous and professional. I have already given his business card to three of my co-workers with my highest recommendation.
Informative and open
Very professional and thoughtful doctor.
Been a patient since we relocated to the Dallas area. Short wait time. Most times I can schedule a same day appointment when someone is sick rather than having to wait several days. Great doc!
First time visit for a sports injury. Dr. Palacios was very helpful and knowledgeable in diagnosing the injury and giving me information on active treatment.
I will definitely be back the next time I'm not feeling so well.
Excellent quality of service from both the staff and Dr. Palacios.
Dr. Palacios is a very nice person, he's really helpful and it was a pleasant visit.
Best family physician I have ever had. In times where doctors seem more concerned with the quantity of patients they see in a day, Dr Palacios takes time to listen and understand your situation.
As usual Dr Palacios was very attentive and addressed all my concerns. I definitely recommend him as a GP or for sports injuries.
Supreme physician are the two words that describe Dr. Palacios. Wishing you simply the best, DW of Dallas
Very nice staff and Doctor was great!
As always, Dr. Palacios was professional and seemed to genuinely care about my concerns. He is knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him as a primary care physician.
Dr. Palacios was great. Very thorough and caring. Will definitely be my Primary Care physician.
I've never had a doctor who takes the time to listen, and then to explain any ailments and their treatment the way Dr. Palacios does. He does this with our whole family, every time. We have sent friends and family his way, and all have positive experiences. A simply excellent GP.
everything went very well
Dr Luis Palacios is the BEST primary care physician one could hope for. He always knows exactly what to do.
Dr. Palacios is the friendliest, most approachable physician I have ever had. I feel like he genuinely cares about my health and "listens" to me. He is very good at explaining himself and takes the time to discuss my health concerns. I have recommended him to my friends, colleagues and family members.
Rarely have I met such an excellent human being AND private care physician. DWofDallas
This appointment was for my 88 year old Dad. Dr. P is a very gentle listener and we reviewed my Dad overall general health. Dr. Ordered a comprehensive blood panel. We will discuss the results next week. My parents are use their Medicare and have Cigna supplemental. Medicare pays fast but, very few docs will take you because of the Medicare stigma. When you find a Medicare doc you feel like your in a city health clinic. Dr. P's staff is supportive and the office is subdued. I'm not a fan of doctor groups. I think we finally found a great family doc. I've tried interviewed 1/2 dozen docs and their staff, since I moved here 3 years ago. My last doc we had for 18 years in Atlanta and its hard to find an individual doc in the city.
Wonderfully warm and kind. Very expert. Good at explaining treatment options and rationale
I felt very comfortable and he answered all my questions.
Excellent. He is a wonderful physician.
Dr. Palacios is the most excellent doctor a senior citizen can have! He knows what to prescribe that won't break the bank! That and his excellent personality keep me coming back! Also, nurse Anabel, is the BEST nurse I have met; recently I have met many. She is always efficient, kind, friendly and knowledgeable.
Dr. Palacios is the best!!
I'd recommend him to anyone
He listened to me regarding what I thought was wrong.
Very knowledgeable and the appointment was quick. Doesn't sit around and small talk which is good because I had to get back to work.
I've been to Dr. Palacios twice now. Very impressed with his efficiency and straightforwardness. Highly recommended.
In the past two years, I have met many doctors. Dr Palacios is the best of the team. DW of Dallas
I chose Dr. Palacios due to the location and proximty to my home. I see his office reguraly when running errands nearby and I've always thought it seemed to be a very clean and professional practice. Overall, it was a great experience. No nonsense, no waiting and a quick diagnosis and treatment. The doctor was very thorough in his explanation of my illness.
Great! He palpated all the ligaments in my knee. Very thorough MD that also patiently answered all questions I had related and unrelated to sports injury. I will now use as my primary care after this visit.
January 2013 I think Dr Palacios is absolutely fantastic. Great bedside manner, wonderful physician
Best family physician we have ever had.
Like him very much. Thorough and explains things well. His office is spotless!
The visit was effective and informative.
He is an excellent physician- extremely kind, patient and has a great sense of humor. I felt immediately comfortable in his care and had a great experience-highly recommended.
He's very informative and friendly.
He asked good questions and gave good information.
It was a great visit. In and out in no time.
I thought he was good I don't really know him yet I was a little nervous seeing a new doctor but I thought he was good I have to drive so far. But I plan on seeing him always
