Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. P was friendly and very informative. He took the time to explain the things that I needed to know and was quick with the check-up, which shows how skilled and experienced he is.
I was very happy with the doctor. He showed an interest in my condition and actually examined me. He didn't just prescribe medication and went the extra mile to get to the root of my stomach issues by setting me up for an endoscopy.
Chief complaint was hemorrhoids I Wasn't physically examined doctor recommended colonoscopy. I called the office one day before my procedure I told Janice ( the assistant) that my hemorrhoids is severely inflamed and I don't think I should take that acid solution for cleansing. I also asked her to ask the doctor what to do for the pain I literally told her the pain is killing me. She promised me to call back immediately after she speaks to the doctor. Never received any calls. Next morning I received a call I thought maybe she is calling to follow up on how I feel ! Another person was just calling to reschedule my procedure. I explained my concern to her she kept me on hold for long I had to hang up never received another call or anything!! It seems They only care about the billing. The patient care was the last of their interest! Surprisingly I went to another doctor who said colonoscopy should have never scheduled with that bad hemorrhoids inflammation. That was my experience!
Great attention and very professional.
During our consultation, Dr. P. was very knowledgeable and carefully explained all the options and alternatives to me. I appreciated that.

Excellent Doctor; wonderful service.
I have been going for many years ...
Well, went in to see dr palmadessa for a second opinion and the threw me off by actually listening and seemed genuinely concerned. His opinion will now be my first and only opinion I will listen to. He did not seem pushy at all, wonderful bedside manner, and listened to my concerns.
He is a good doctor.
Dr.Palmadessa is very Efficient & Friendly. Highly Professional.
The receptionist and the doctor were wonderful, caring and patient. I highly recommend the doctor. My only issue was that the office did not receive the confirmation of the appointment from ZocDoc, so they were unaware that we were coming. The receptionist worked with the doctor to fit us in. (very professional)
the visit,which I had to make the appointment because zoc doc failed to make it, was great.
Dr. Palmadessa displays a charming bedside manner and tons of patience in explaining what the course of treatment will entail.
I have been a patient of Dr. Palmadessa's for a long time now and all of my visits have been good. His beside manner is wonderful and he has a wonderful staff as well.
Not really. I was in seriously pain, the doctors didn't offer any medicine to stop the pain but make an appointment to get a check 2 weeks later. I went to another doctor later she immediately gave me the medicine to stop the pain and did the check very soon,now my problem has fixed. I'm glad I didn't wait for that two weeks.
Courteous and helpful staff. Dr. Palmadessa explained everything in terms that were understandable.
Always a pleasure.Very clear, kind, and caring.
He was very professional and was clearly concerned for my condition. He was also very accommodating with all I needed to feel better and get healthier.
