Waiting room was a bit too relaxed. I had to wait until the ladies finished their chatter before they would greet me. TV shows date and temperature, but not time? No clock in the waiting area. Medical staff were all warm and caring.

He seemed pleasant enough. He’s very straight to the point. The office was clean and updated which I liked. If you’re looking for someone with more conversation and personality I would recommend him. I didn’t feel rushed but I feel like things could have been explained more in detail.

Dr. Palgon is compassionate and thorough; he is also receptive to mythoughts and wants to get my input before deciding on a course of treatment. Highly recommend.

Everyone at the office was very pleasant, and the wait time was minimal. My main issue was that I didn't feel like I was being heard when listing my symptoms and was offered no real solutions other than a referral to a specialist.

Dr. Palgon was very nice. He addressed my issues with understanding and worked with me on the best course of action. It was a quick and easy appointment. The wait was okay, though longer than I had expected. The woman atthe front desk was abrassive and unfriendly. I felt scared of her, which i don't think is good for a doctor's office setting.

His bedside manner is satisfactory, but his follow through is severely lacking. He requested multiple expensive tests but appears to never have submitted them for analysis. Despite four weeks of calling in there is no response, other thanhe will call back (which he does not do), and his medical recommendations have actually caused the condition to worsen not improve. When requesting copies of the tests to prove he has actually submitted the test, his office refuses. It appears that he is not working on behalf of patients. The lack of empathy is alarming for a practicing physician. He is a doctor who views patients as an open wallet, no matter what. He lacks empathy and does not not care about his patients' suffering. Would suggest you choose an alternative provider.
