Ratings for Dr. Remo Di Palma
Started my appointment by lecturing me to be on time and if he spends anymore than 10 mins with me he's doing me a "favour". Wow thanks. All the while he was late for the appointment which I showed up early for. He then told me he dosent just write prescriptions.. though both times I have brought my son in for his skin he has thrown a perscription cream at me rather than help me. I have since seen another doctor and we found out he has a food allergy. THEN on the visit for myself he starts it by measuring my waist... and telling me I am at the biggest size a woman should be. I am 5'8" tall and weight 140lbs, I have a one year old and I fit my old clothes. I just bought an extra small dress this weekend! I am by no means as big as a woman should be! Is he breeding eating disorders?? Then he told me to read a book "why I am fat and how not to be"!! It was awful and I couldnt get it out of my head. Do not recommend him to anyone.
Dr Dipalma is rude and arrogant and extremely unpleasant. He will not allow one to ask questions. I leave the office feeling worse than when I went in for help with a medical problem. He is always late for my appointments. I am very unhappy being treated without respect in his office.
I only met with this Doc as my regular was unavailable but felt he was excellent. The appointment was actually for my infant, but I was very comfortable with his knowledge of diet/nutrition for babies. He did acknowledge the importance of breast feeding (his first question), and went on to a very thorough exam of my baby, and gave sound advice. He answered all of my questions and I generally have many. Personally, I like a doctor who is concerned with MY sleep and well being as well as baby's. Id have no problem seeing him again.
My husband and I found him to be very unprofessional and extremely condescending. I could not get an appointment with my regular doctor so I needed to see him in the meantime. I went to see him about a specific chronic problem I have and he instead prescribed me medication for a totally unrelated illness which I am quite sure I did not have. When I asked him about compatibility with my chronic illness and breast feeding, he gave me a round about, "well, nothing is 100% safe but you have to weigh your priorities". After consulting with other medical professionals, I was told that it was an unsafe drug to take when breastfeeding. He also told my husband and I to "throw out our beliefs and do what works" and that our 6 month old son should be sleeping in his own room. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone, and in fact have gone out of my way to ensure that no one I know who uses this clinic will ever book with this doctor. I've had bad doctors before, but he was the worst.
I am not impressed at all. I had a series of appointments booked every Friday morning at 8 am and for some reason, he wouldn't come into the room until 8:45, smelling like coffee. I'm glad he got a nice relaxed ride to work and feels he can show up whenever he wants, because I was rushing my three kids out the door so they wouldn't be late for school, which they ended up being anyway. I would like to buy him a watch and some antibacterial mouthwash. He has some serious bad breath!
I've followed Dr Di Palma across town, since I am so impressed by him. He is extremely knowledgeable: diagnosed a serious problem that 2 other FPs had misdiagnosed, and got me to a surgeon in time to prevent serious disability. My whole family love him too!
