Yes, I was happy with the service, but I'd really didn't get much to see the doctor. I just saw her for 5 minutes before the procedure and I wasn't able to really ask her questions since I think the procedure was a little behind schedule. That's it. Thank you.

Dr. Palta is very professional and sweet.
July 14, 2020
I wish Dr Palta had considered testing me for SIBO, when she diagnosed me with IBS. I also wish she had not strongly suggested giving me a PPI. I feel like the PPI exacerbated the problem and I'll have to work to control my SIBO for the rest of my life. I received more information at this visit than any other, after I figured it out on my own. She only confirmed what I found, doing my own research. It should be the other way around.
July 14, 2020
It was my first time getting this procedure done (colonastopy screening) and I highly recommend it to all my friends and family to not hesitate and get it done when it's due time. Dr. Renee Palta is so professional, kind and gentle along with the entire staff! I had a very great experience

June 15, 2020
I appreciate the way the staff and doctor treated me. They were patient and understanding. Going through a procedure is not pleasant and being nervous and anxious at the same time is difficult for anyone. Being treated kindly and with respect goes a long way!

I like Dr. Palta very much and have confidence in her care of me. I really appreciated that she told me she had taken the time to read my whole medical record from my time with with Kaiser...all 628 pages! I know her time is valuable and I value it as well. I will recommend her and her team to anyone I fine could use her expertise.
March 13, 2020
Again, I would take my own children to see this doctor even if their insurance did not provide for her services. Colonoscopies are serious and one can since this doctors abilities and appreciation for her patients. It was my 1st visit with her but she made me feel as though I'd been coming to her for years. I wish all doctors were trained to treat their patients as she treated me.
March 12, 2020
Dr. Palta is a conscientious practioner, who will listen and do the right thing for her patients.
March 12, 2020
