One of the few compassianote caring Dr.

Dr. Palafox is the best breast cancer care Dr. I would definetely recommend her. She's explains everything, answers all your questions. Doesn't treat you like a number. Takes her time, doesn't rush. I'm very satisfied with her. Is very humble and compassionate.What caring Dr. gives you their cell phone. Dr, Palafox does. Love, Love, Love Dr. Palafox. Besides my OBGYN Dr, II've never met any Dr. like her. If your appoitment is running more than 30 minutes behind, it's because a problem arose with antoher patient. Again She still takes her time and explains everything.

We have lost a great DOCTOR.

Dr. Palafox, has left the area. She was a fantastic doctor, she took the time to talk with her patients. I for one will drive the extra miles that I need to see her. She dose not mince words. About what needs to be done and she is one of only a few doctors that will give out a cell. She was abel to help me with a problem that happened after a minor surgery.

Doctor's Response

Thank you so much for your kind words. I was so sad when the hospital in Orange shut its doors; it provided so much to a simply amazing community of people. I will miss all of you dearly. Although I was saddened when I realized I would have to leave Orange with the closure of the hospital, I feel blessed for the opportunity to begin a new chapter and start my own practice in San Antonio.
