Sharp, outgoing, caring, thorough internist--Superb!

Dr. Palla is a topnotch professional. Goes well beyond the minimum to assess patient well being and illness. Consistently makes cogent recommendations to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. Simply the best physician with whom I have received care.

Great reviews are 100% justified

Dr. Palla is fantastic and every great review I read before my visit with her is 100% justified! Not only is she a great physician, more importantly, she LISTENS to you, asks questions and treats you as a whole person, not just an isolated injury or illness. She is extremely prompt about follow-up and calling with test results.

Early childhood educator MS

She and her PA are super gracious and friendly. Every lovely except, if you are a patient with challenges she falls short. For a year I told her I was getting pins and needles fast, frequently and intensely in feet and hands. She said keep moving and how is your back? Finally I stopped a med and she said the med could have caused prob. It was the med. Then she sent me to a nutritionist who was pathetically uninformed. I knew more than her. Years later I am seeing a gastro doc at St B for gastroparesis. The nutritionist I was sent to by Dr Palla was clueless about Special diets for people with Celiac, IBS gastro probds. Hadn't heard about Low Fod Map diet. Finally Palla said, you know, you might have trouble digesting food. Dr Palla doesn't know when it is time to see a specialist.
