My first visit and I was impressed

May 24, 2023

I had great concerns about getting a hip replaced at my age of 85, but was put at ease even though there are always risks. I decided to go ahead after my visit.

We were very pleased with Dr. Palit both during our visit at the clinic and when we were in the ER in Humboldt and he was consulted. Our providers in Humboldt did not have to wait at all to hear back from Dr. Palit, which was so nice! I also really appreciated how he was interested in more than just my son's injury. He seemed to genuinely want to know a bit about him and showed true interest and concern for his well being, beyond just his broken finger. That was awesome!

I have been recommending this clinic to everyone - never had a bad experience here. Everybody has always been very good to me. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Dr. Mark Palit is simply one of the best doctors/specialists in this state. He answered every question and provided me with top-notch care and great advice on my injury. Keep up the good work, doc!

I explained that I believed that I had a tear in my shoulder as cortisone shots, therapy, and several other methods of pain relief had no significant or long-lasting effects. Dr. Palit listened to my explanation and examined me. He also thought I might have a tear. I was X-rayed and had a MRI during the first appointment. That to me, is amazing. MRI showed a tear. On the next appointment, Dr. Palit explained the surgery to repair the tear. I agreed and look forward to getting out of this pain.

Dr. Palit is a very good doctor and I would recommend him to anyone.
