Verified Patient Reviews
Wow what a great experience. This was probably the best experience I have ever had at a doctors office. The visit did not feel rushed. I had ample opportunity to ask any questions. Dr. Palmon explained everything and gave different thoughts and opinions on my situation. I came to him confused and worried, after previously seeing another GI doctor. I left feeling relieved and with all the answers I needed. Hopefully I will not need to see him again, but if I do I would look forward to it.
well run office, efficient - Dr. Palmon is great, takes time to listen and explain.
Excellent. Takes time and very easy to understand.

This was my first visit with Dr. Palmon. He is a great listener who appears to be genuinely interested in what you have to say. He talks through his thinking clearly as well as exploring possible diagnoses and treatment option. He clearly knows what he is doing and within a few minutes I trusted him instinctively.

Dr Palmon, is the best GI I've seen. After having seen 4 GI's due to a severe GI problem, I can attest that Dr Palmon is one of the best doctors in NYC. Only he sought to go the extra mile and think outside the box. God bless him.
Everything about my appointment was excellent. Dr. Palmon was friendly, professional, not in a rush. The office and staff were highly professional and courteous.
Very reassuring, great communicator. Good bedside manner.
I saw Dr. Palmon for an endoscopy. Met with him the first time for a consultation in his office and the second time at the medical center where the endoscopy was performed. He was very friendly and thorough. The procedure was quick and painless and the staff were fantastic, very caring and professional. I haven't needed a return visit but wouldn't hesitate to go back if it were necessary.

Wonderful doctor. He was recommended to me after a bad experience with another gastroenterologist. What a difference! Dr. Palmon is knowledgeable, respectful and kind, and I really trust his judgment.
Everyone on staff was professional and courteous and nice, and I waited just a few minutes to be see. Dr. Palmon was great, professional and knowledgeable --he explained everything simply and in detail to me, he wanted to hear why I was there, what concerned me, offered advice, took into account family history, and recommended tests he thought would be useful and advised against overtesting. All in all everyone was great.
It was very professional ..
An easy visit left with confidence I was seeing the right Doctor..

Very thorough and inspired a great deal of confidence in his abilities. Thank you Doctor and Staff.
He was excellent .

Honestly -- the best doctor, period, of ANY specialty I've ever been to. I felt a great energy as soon as I walked into his office to talk to him; he listened to me, answered my questions very thoroughly, and made sure we were both on the same page with everything. I feel like I'm in great hands with him. The office is also professional and there was no wait time to see the doctor. I'd recommend him to ANYONE looking for a great GI doctor. (I wish he could be my doctor for all specialties because he communicates so well.)
He is a great doctor with a great attitude. He likes to discuss with me before giving any prescription.

I had two visits - one for the office and one at the Carnegie Hill Clinic. Each time he was friendly, professional and I completely trust him. Excellent choice for anyone needing this type of medical care.
