I cant recall how many years my husband and I have been seeing Dr Padilla. I do know she is without any doubt a caring woman and always has your best interest in mind. I am so thankful she is my doctor. She willingly listens to my health needs and me as an overall person. I can't imagine ever finding any other doctor with so much concern and compassion. I have told her on more than one… See more

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Padilla
Dr. P is just amazing, she is everything you want in a MD and a close friend wrapped into one. I live in FL 6 months of the year, and am now on my 4th Dr, because I can't find anyone who delivers care like Dr. P. If I get really sick I hope I am near Dr.P.
Dr. Padilla, I think that you are the most compassionate doctor that I know. Thank you for your care.
I'm from a medical family. My late father was a Rheumatologist and my mother is a retired nurse. I grew up in an MD dominated neighborhood in the 1960's and 1970's and received physicians courtesy medicine until my early adult life. It wasn't until late in life that I realized how special my medical care was back then.

Dr. Padilla knows me. I never feel like a number or someone that she just looks up my file and regurgitates anything I've told her in the past. She's my shrink as well as my medical doctor. I love the individualism that she and her staff knows who I am and it's all confidential. I love my doctor. Doctor Padilla definitely gets an A+ from me
A little less than 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with a rare neuroendocrine cancer and treated in the only manner available...surgery. The greatest stress was navigating the miriad tests and being available since we travel quite a bit. Dr. Padilla is a gem. My husband, his mother and I all see her. Not only is her staff delightful, but I never feel rushed during my appointments. I need to… See more

My friends were… See more
I am soooo excited to be doing this for Barbara, my doctor. Dr. Padilla was my doctor before MDVIP. I remember being in another doctors office and hearing someone speak glowingly about her. I was looking to change doctors because of feeling like I was just a number, in a waiting room for 50 minutes waiting for my appointment again.

Dr. Padilla is much more than a doctor. She is more like a professional friend. She is always concerned about my health issues and always creates time to
listen to me. She seems to have built her staff with her ideals and to me that is also a bonus when visiting or calling her. What else can I say. I think she is great!
