My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

After 30 years in medicine, I have learned what can work and what does not typically work to help my patients live healthier and more productive lives. I believe that a solid doctor-patient relationship and meaningful one-on-one time, along with a comprehensive and preventive approach are key elements to helping patients attain improved health and quality of life.  

My MDVIP-affiliated practice is just that. I have more time to partner with you to perform important assessments and formulate a wellness plan unique to you; a plan that can help you achieve your health goals and live a fuller and more vital life. 

As a board-certified GYN, my expertise is in women’s health, with a special interest in perimenopause, menopause, sexual health and hormones. Marrying a blend of women’s health and primary care, I, as your personal doctor, can provide you with more individualized and comprehensive care. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. You can also experience many conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments and the ability to reach me during and after hours. 

My practice is located in Bend, Oregon, and I welcome patients from the Central Oregon area.

After years of dead-end appointments, and doctors who would tell me there is nothing they can do. I heard about someone who could possibly help me with my problems. It took awhile but then I called and scheduled an appointment.

I was warmly greeted by Dr Palacio when he came to my room. We talked about everything I had gone through, and my concerns about what my body had been going… See more
