I received a very thorough explanation of why I was experiencing certain symptoms that were causing me some concern. This doctor was very on top of going in depth on what her thoughts were of what I may be dealing with In an approachable manner, and assured me that I'd be able to manage It.

I would like to say that the care I received from the doctor was one of the best received in the time I have been living in this country. Your interest and concern to help me and your treatment in general. I hope he serves his example for other health providers.

The receptionist (was a fill-in) did not speak loudly enough for me to hear as I am deaf.

This is not the fault of the provider. It is frustrating that only a part of my medical records which are on MyChart through Vancouver Clinic show up on Legacy's online chart-they are supposed to be linked. It would have helped the doctor have a better understanding of my past health problems and treatments.

This was 1st visit with Dr. Palacios. She is one of the absolute best doctors I've seen. She thoroughly explained possible issues, treatment options. She considered all of my medical history while discussing options.

Just felt very listened to and validated. She changed her communication style after learning about my education history and didn't talk down to me. Made me feel very safe and comfortable and like she knew what she was talking about while also listening to my own experiences in my body.
