Reviews for Katharine Palla, D.O.


I have been a patient of Dr Palla for almost 2 years she is very knowledgeable and comfortable to work with .

   — Robert D. Hodge


Dr. Palla is very compassionate and a very competent physician. Her skills at diagnosis and treatment are founded on her keen listening skills and her high regard for the importance in taking time to obtain a thorough patient history. She will not rush you in order to see the next patient in the waiting room. She creates a climate of trust and her listening “antenna” result in you sharing other medical conditions which you might have thought were not important. She is then able to approach the “whole” you; and both of you can then develop a comprehensive treatment plan. As a thorough primary care physician, she has excellent diagnostic skill in making referrals to medical specialists when they are called for.

   — Stephen St. Hilaire


The best care I have ever had from a physician. Easy to talk to, a gentle touch, and kind manner made me comfortable and relaxed. The staff could use some help but the Doctor is terrific.

   — Scott J.


I am continually impressed with the high quality of care and attention given to me when I am in need of both.

   — Cynthia Schwartz


Dr. Palla is seriously the best doctor I have trusted my health to. She is responsive, caring, open, collaborative, and smart. She always has given me the personal time and attention that I needed. I got sick with COVID while I was traveling in Australia this summer and she was there for me with advice, love, and attention when I needed it most.   Highly recommend this wonderful Doctor.

Dr. Paella is simply an outstanding doctor and human being. She is caring and compassionate; she spends a long time with her patient and you leave her office feeling as though questions have been answered and concerns have been but to rest. Her follow through is stellar. I truly appreciate her and feel as though my mental and physical health has improved as a result of being her patient.

   — Wendy Zwoboda


I had already been a patient at this office for a few years when Dr. Palla entered in 2020. Since then she has been very helpful toward addressing my medical needs and answering any questions I’ve had. Unfortunately, during a recent visit I was treated unprofessionally by a receptionist at the front desk while checking in on a recent visit. Admittedly, I arrived 15 minutes late, which I was told was late enough to have missed the appointment. However I did not appreciate the tone from her as if I was being an inconvenience. I had been standing at the front of the window and obviously ignored for a moment before she addressed me, before I was even told that I missed the appointment. At last she did not offer me the option to reschedule and continued working on her computer and I had to ask for her to set one up. The next day I called the office back and Lisa (not the same receptionist as mentioned before) assisted me in getting my rescheduled appointment pushed up to within a few days.

I can't say enough good about Dr. Palla. She has been my primary provider for many years now and has always been patient, kind and thorough. Although she is busy, she never makes me feel rushed and always takes the time to listen. She's the best!

   — Linda


A true blessing. I have never met a physician who truly cares for her patients as Dr. Palla. A wonderful person.

   — Gregory Bubb


Dr. Palla is one of the most caring and thorough doctors I have ever been to. My family and I went to her as we asked all of our new neighbors to recommend someone. When you move to a new area and try to find new medical professionals it can be challenging. They all advised us that she is wonderful - and she is. She doesn't rush my visit and can take care of my entire family with ease.

   — Barbara A Kantor


Pleasant, timely, addressing the issue...resolution. Dr. Palla, easy to talk to, listens and responds knowledgeably. Staff friendly, office spacious and neat. Five stars all around ??????????

   — Alice Batta


Dr. Palla is WONDERFUL!!! She is super smart and looks at the big picture of everything going on.

   — L FG


A very pleasant person who takes time to discuss the issue at hand, explains medications, next steps and listens to her patients. Does not treat you like cattle. She has even called to follow up. I will not go to anyone else.

   — Theresa Stacy


8/2022 update With consultation about my bloodwork, Dr Palla has helped me improve my health and weight. Its great to be able to talk nutrition, root cause, and solutions. Many doctors, in my past, were not up to speed about nutrition concepts, vitamins, and root cause. Prior: Dr. Palla is professional and not rushed as are many. She took the time to discuss my history with past physicians (various items) to understand my thoughts on my medical condition. We then discussed a plan for testing and the review of those results. The doctor and the staff make use of their medical applications, so that, I can submit paperwork and receive test results when they become available. Some of my prior experiences have not been with this automation, especially my prior GP of 30 years. I look forward to further discussions directing me to better health.

   — Bill Z


Dr. Palla is caring and concerned not only about your physical well-being but also about your mental and emotional well-being.

   — JoAnn D


I'm a new patient to Dr. Palla. Great bedside manner. She's very personable and makes you feel comfortable talking about medical issues. I had my yearly physical. One thing that turned me off, she said she'd call me the next day about my blood work results. This is something my previous doctor always did, so I assumed this was the norm. I never received a call. A few days later, I had to follow-up with a call and I never got hold of Dr. Palla. Her medical assistant called me back about my results and her recommendations. I'm not sure if this is due to COVID or whether this is the practice of her office, but I was a little put off with having someone else calling me.

   — Beverley Prentice


Doctor Palla is not only an excellent doctor but also very caring one. My visit went very well, was very satisfied with her prognosis. She took the time to answer all my questions and and gave me excellent directions for my own home care. Best of all she relieved all of my anxieties.

   — Sarah Lipani


I recently changed to Dr. Palla as my primary physician and she exceeded all expectations. She was thorough and answered all the questions I had. I am excited to have a friendly physician for my future.

   — Allie Mangino


Always pleasant, informative, thorough. Couldn’t ask for a more satisfactory visit to doctor’s office..excellent.

   — Alyce Batta


Excellent experience she is so through and interested in treating the patient with concern that she put you a ease immediately. This was our first visit to this doctor (myself and my wife) and we could not be more satisfied. The staff is so pleasant and professional also.

   — James And Michelina


Friendly, professional, very knowledgeable and looks at data with the context of the patient’s ‘big picture’ - she’s also thinks ‘outside of the box’. Very responsive as situations change. I have recommended her to two friends who are now very satisfied patients.

   — Sarah


Dr. Palla is the best doctor I've yet experienced. She takes time and listens carefully. Her intelligence and professionalism are above reproach. I actually look forward to my appointments!

   — Cynthia Davis


I moved to Little Falls and in search for a primary doctor. I came across Dr. Palla on a website search and of course reviews are a plus!! Since my 1st appt in 2016 I was so comfortable with the staff, location and Dr. Palla bed side manner. She is a great listener and very friendly. Her charisma and knowledge is a big plus for me! When my dad passed away, she was very warming and checked up on me as well. Today my husband became her patient as well and we look forward to our annual visits with Dr. Palla.

   — Teresa Bedoya

Dr Palla fit me in when they were very busy which was wonderful.. I was suffering from back spasms. I waited 20 minutes or so to see her, but I didn't mind because I didn't have an appointment per se. She prescribed a muscle relaxant for me, which has made all the difference. I would recommend her to other people.

   — Sarah J MOREAU

My visit with Dr. Palla exceeded my expectations in every way. She is very thorough & explains everything. She is the only doctor that I have ever had that makes it a habit to call me after each & every visit. She is so friendly, & has a great "bedside manner". She is very down to earth, but most of all her heartfelt empathy & caring nature shines thru to make me feel so special & that I am always in good hands & am being well cared for at all times. Enough said.

Dr Palla is truly an excellent physician. After struggling with high blood pressure since I was 15 yrs old and seeing multiple specialists around NJ/NYC, Dr Palla is the physician that spends the most detailed time listening to my concerns while trying to come up with a solutions, which is incredible considering how much little time doctors are allowed to actually spend with their patients these days. Dr Palla loves her profession and will be my PCP for as long as I live in the area!

   — Alec Massood

I am a nurse and was diagnosed with COVID-19 on the morning of 04/14/20 and Dr. Palla was able to do a Telehealth Visit with me at the very end of her busy schedule the same day. This was my first visit with her and I was highly impressed with her eagerness to help me right away. She was also very caring and very knowledgeable in her addressing my concerns. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new internal medicine physician.

   — PAV

I am very grateful to have Dr. Palla as my primary care physician. Both of my ankles were suddenly swollen. She squeezed me into her very busy schedule the next day. I had a follow up appointment with her within 7 days to check if the swelling had gone down. In this day & age, what doctor calls a patient personally the next day with test results. Enough said.

Katherine is so personal, smart and caring. Just a terrific GP.

   — Frayda Levy


Dr Palla goes above and beyond for patients with deep empathy and superior diagnostic ability. As a newer patient, I was impressed when the Dr. Came to the phone phone to discuss a scary medical issue and suggested I come to the office immediately to have it checked. I arrived 5 minutes before closing, and the staff was attentive, yet relaxed which was reassuring. Dr. Palla immediately diagnosed the problem and recommended a solution. I left feeling relieved and lucky to have found a physician that is accessible, builds rapport with patients and is an exceptional practitioner.

   — Dara Siva

At my age I have seen many doctors. Dr. Palla is caring, considerate, competent and, most importantly, attentive. It is a pleasant surprise to know you matter in a doctor office. In addition the nurse and office staff are fantastic! I almost hate to recommend them for fear of crowding. However, I cannot say enough positive things!!

   — Steven Titus


Caring and competent doctor!

   — Nada Shater


What an amazing experience. Just when I was about to lose all hope in finding a doctor with empathy I five Dr. Palla a try. Not only is she empathetic, she really listens and tries to work with you on improving your health. To top it off the office staff makes you feel welcome and never rushed. I almost hate recommending her for fear that she'll become too popular, but she is too good not to share!!!

   — S. T.


By far one of my favorite doctors ever. She actually listens and has been amazing at treating various things through both medicine and nonmedicine tactics. I fully trust her and her judgment as she's proven to be competent time and time again. She's able to breakdown her decisions and any diagnosis while answering my questions in a way that's easily understandable. The staff are also really responsive and wonderful which has been a rare occurrence at other places.

   — Nicole Mendolera


Dr. Palla is a very caring internist who genuinely wants to help and succeed in getting her patients better as evidenced iby the care I received this week . She is also an excellent listener . Her staff is outstanding as well. She works solo . Her office ,a very tidy house that made me think about how medical practices operated in the distant past. Nothing like the mega medical practice corporations that we have all become acustom to and so dislike .

   — Wayne Chernick


During a lot of my previous experiences with doctors, I have felt that I was expected to just trust that what they were doing was right for me. With Dr. Palla, I felt like I had the information to make the decisions for myself and that my opinions and preferences were respected. She spent time getting to know me and I never felt like she was rushing to another appointment. She was incredibly kind and easy to talk to. I really can't say enough good things about my experience!

   — Aubrey Byrne In Montclair NJ


Dr. Palla is truly a gem. I always wanted to feel like I had a personal relationship with my doctor. Someone I could feel comfortable talking about my concerns without feeling judged. Someone who I knew was trustworthy and knowledgeable. Someone interested in me holistically. I found that doctor in Dr . Palla. Her warmth, knowledge, openness, caring, and attention to detail is exceptional. Her office is accessible, helpful and accommodating. If there was only a way to add 10 stars!

   — Wendi CaplanCarroll


I have been a patient of Dr. Palla for many years. Dr. Palla is a most caring and competent doctor. She really cares about her patients. I have seen many doctors in my lifetime and Dr. Palla is the best!

   — Glen Lampa


Excellent doctor knows her patients well. Prefers to give scripts as a last resort after patient tries more homeopathic ways of healing or changes/adjustments in life choices
