"This man saved my life twice! He is loved and admired by all who work with him and his patients. He's kind yet straight forward and answers all questions with clarity and thoroughness. One nurse told me, he's the one they call in if other surgeons encounter difficulty! He's the best! "

"I went into the emergency room at St. Judes in Fullertion complaining of shooting back pains. They did a CT scan and within an hour made arrangements to transfer me to Dr. Palafox at St. Joseph's hospital in Orange. Events transpired very quickly and Dr. Palafox took someone unknown to him and saved his life. Dr. Palafox is also a reserve Army surgeon. His talents go far beyond the surgical table. He replaced the ascending portion of my aorta along with an aortic valve replacement. In my extensive heart history, I would rate Dr. Palafox as number one."
