Spends no time, charges a ton

I visited with the doctor two times to follow up from an out-of-state surgery. Both times Dr Paly seemed to be in a rush and only a few minutes (~5) with me. The first bill was $385 + $100 for the X-ray. The second bill was $310+$100 for the X-ray. All for a total of less than 10 minutes of "care". I do not recommend Dr Paly. There are much better orthopedists out there.

Two Stars

I fractured my ankle so my appointment was on an "urgent" basis.I have had a lot of experiences with orthopedics with my husband and a few sports injuries myself. In thinking about other Drs. I would say he is very quiet almost to an awkward point. He definitely wasn't very friendly at all.My exam (if you want to call it that) and putting the cast on took less then 10 minutes. I realize I was a last minute appointment but his office was empty and it was only 4 pm. I have had a follow-up and it was very brief as well. The NP Gail is very nive though.

I think its fair to say he is a man of few words. But he'll spend the time you need if you ask.

Dr. Paly was prompt and professional when I saw him on an emergency basis after fracturing an ankle. Bring a list of questions to make sure you get all the information you want. He'll answer them but his won't ask them for you. If you don't ask anything you'll leave with everything you need to know until you see him for the next visit but no more.

Professional attitude, agreeable to questions

While I can see why Dr. Paly's manner may seem brusque, it was no more brusque than any other highly-trained, confident surgeon. I had no problems asking questions concerning my procedure; all were answered professionally, completely, and with explanations if needed. My own attempt to inject a bit of humor was met with a smile and a joke. All in all, the visit was exactly what I expected. The staff was professional and friendly without being overbearing or cloying; paperwork was kept to a minimum; follow-up visits were made according to my schedule.
