Dr. Palese Is a warm and caring doctor who is clearly an expert in his field. I felt both seen and heard by him. He answered all my questions and did not make me feel rushed. He set me up witha plan of action that I feel comfortable with and I left feeling like I’m in great hands.

I had a choice of kidney stone specialists, but chose Dr. Palese because he's the chairman of the urology department at Mount Sinai. I prefer to see doctors who are the top of their field.

Dr. Palese and his fellow were genuinely interested in my issue and getting to the root cause. Though I will have to see a few additional specialists, they were the first doctors I've seen who were more interested in finding thecause and fixing it rather than just treating the symptoms. Their bedside manner was great - explaining everything to me and answering all of my questions but without making me feel like I was unintelligent. They treated me with respect - I highly recommend them!

Medical Assistant was not very good, had absolutley no idea how to interact with a patient. She should not be involved with direct patient care.

My visit with Dr. Palese and his PA was an entirely positive experience. My condition, and the medication prescribed by Dr. Palese to address it, were explained in detail. Dr. Palese's staff saw to it that the medication arrived at my home the same afternoon. Very impressive!
