Excellent experience! Dr. Shah answered all of my questions and also made me feel so relaxed talking to her. It felt like talking to a friend. She really wants you to feel comfortable in the treatment plan, and allows you to input how you feel about the plan. You won’t find many doctors like this. Highly recommend!! Can’t wait for my follow-up visit!
So happy I found Paloma! Cannot say enough good things about the staff and services.
My first online appointment for hypothyroid. It was a good appointment. Only problem was not covered by my insurance but it is still affordable!
Really easy to use and so convenient. So much better than waiting a the doctor's office. I collect my sample, place it in the bag they provide and put it in the mailbox for the postal worker to pick it up.
Purchase, shipping, collection, and results were easy! I appreciate the ability to have a test done in the comfort of my own home, especially during the pandemic.
The process was very easy and straight forward. Also, there was excellent communication along the way. I would highly recommend Paloma for testing!
Simple, great instructions, and I had everything I needed!
Wonderfull experience. Dr. Busick was kind, listened carefully to my concerns, and provided me with an alternative. I very feel very hopeful now
Dr Cunningham was very thorough when answering questions that I had. I felt very confident with his assessment as well his advise.
Great doctor! Was so informative, engaged and understanding. Would highly recommend.
I felt very much like I was listened to and my concerns were addressed.
Dr. Busick was very thorough & had great suggestions to improve my health. I love that I can message her with any concerns or questions.
Paloma was very communicative, easy to track, and was extremely generous in providing sufficient supplies (plus bonus goodies!) with the kit. I appreciated the thoughtfulness in including extra lancets - which I ended up needing! - and extra bandages and wipes. It really felt like Paloma cared more than a traditional doctor. My only con was that I found it slightly difficult to get my blood to drip in just the right spots on the card.
I LOVE Paloma and their A+ customer service! Their tests are the same accuracy as the test at my Drs office for a fraction of the cost.
The whole experience was quick and painless! Super fast shipping and got the results faster than expected!

Nicole is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist specializing in weight management, food sensitivities, thyroid conditions, and autoimmune conditions. Nicole completed her education at the University of Georgia where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics.
A few years ago, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. This propelled her to learn more about the thyroid condition and how she could naturally improve her health. Nicole learned from the healthcare professionals she worked with at the time, and began her own continuing education.
In addition, Nicole became a Certified LEAP Therapist which qualifies her to work with LEAP MRT patients and perform the MRT (Mediator Release Test) and use LEAP immunocalm diet therapy. This means Nicole can use the gold standard testing in food sensitivities to test patients for the foods that are causing further inflammation. This is currently an integral part of Nicole’s thyroid nutrition protocol for patients with Hashimoto’s. She has found the best approach is to reduce inflammation through diet, and to improve nutrient status.
