Dr DiPalma was born in Flushing, New York and has since lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and currently resides in Athens, Georgia. He has six children ranging in age from 30 to 17, along with wife, Debbie. He is very active in his community and takes a strong personal interest in the care of the elderly. He has worked in numerous nursing homes and gives lectures on personal nutrition, health and foot care. He recently became the grandfather of a little girl, Isabelle Grace, two years ago, and in his free time he enjoys spending time with his family. Dr. DiPalma loves nature and the outdoors. When he isn’t working, you can probably catch him doing almost anything outside.
