Verified Patient Reviews
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 the cause 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!
Dr. Palese was knowledgeable, decisive and friendly. I'm sure he had a full schedule, but I felt I had his full attention, and he did not rush my follow up questions.
Routine follow-up. Nothing special to report.
Very pleased with the office and staff
Most in the office were very friendly; only 1 was not.
Many people when I arrived so I was ready to wait a long time, but it was no significant wait at all.
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.
Pleasant office. Doctor and medical assistants excellent. Courteous front staff.
Everyone in this practice is kind, courteous and professional. Dr Palese is nice, informative, and reassuring . Not much wait time. The staff arranges any tests for you (mri, etc) as well as getting approvals from insurance.
Professional and courteous, felt very comfortable with both the doctor and all attending after me.

Outstanding, in all respects. David Fay
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!
