The "New" Palo Alto Clinic is shameful compared with what it used to be. If you start with a BMW plant and buy a bunch of Yugo, Fiat and Seat plants you simply do not end up with the same BMW product - and that goes for medical expansion also. The practice is now diluted with doctors who would not been part of the PAMF in the past and the focus has changed also. In the past non - evasive medicine (less being better) was a goal, now the practice is all about applying most procedures to everybody - everything is driven by money. The billing department is completely disfuntional and there is zero customer service. The Stanford Clinics seem to be much more interested in their patients,

I would be wary of anything associated with Stanford now. Under their auspices, Stanford Hospital and Valley in San Jose, let residents near patients. I have no problem with real residents, but there are a bunch of affirmative action "special" program pretend "drs" I would not let near my pets.
