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 than he 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.

I really like Dr. Palgon a lot. He's gentle, straightforward, and kind. The practice is also excellent- the exceptional administrative team deserves a nod. They have early and late hours, always have someone available, and are exceedingly helpful and friendly. I was seen right away.

This was my first visit with Dr. Palgon. The staff there were very professional and pleasant. Dr. Palgon was very nice and professional as well. He asked me a few questions, took my vitals and took a sinus culture. Although, he couldn't tell me what steps to take after this visit, after the results from the sinus culture come back, he'll let me know. He made suggestions as to what I can do until I meet with the allergist, but the suggestions he made were not really helpful as I told him that I already tried the medicines and remedies he recommended prior to meeting with him and they did not work. I will continue to give him a try. Hopefully, he'll be able to solve my sinus/allergy issues.

This was a great visit! I've been looking for a good ENT after several disappointing ones, and I'm so glad I found this office and Dr.Palgon. The staff was great, friendly and everything proceeded quite quickly. For your first visit, they'll call and prompt you to fill out paperwork online in advance - definitely take them up on this, it makes the first visit easy - absolutely no paperwork to fill out on premises! Dr. Palgon was warm, attentive, and it was clear that the patient is at the center of what he does. He didn't come with an agenda (like I've experienced with other ENTs regarding surgery or steroids) and was the first to give me what I've felt should have been routine procedure to see what was going on (a culture from my sinuses). I'm pleased to be under his care.

I had a great experience here. Everyone at the front desk was very friendly. I appreciated the call after I booked the appointment to confirm and do all of the paperwork online. My appointment was for 9:10. I was called in at 9:20 and we were finished by 9:45. He was very efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Would definitely recommend him.

The visit was wonderful. Very beautiful and clean place. The view of the outside from the chair was amazing. Dr. Palgon was very thorough and explains everything he was doing. At the end of the checkup, he goes over the paperwork he was giving to me. The staff was great too. Their office is not able to pull up any registration done though zocdoc but because I had already filled it out online, the lady at the front desk personally filled it out again for me and all I had to do was accept the terms and sign. So that was very nice of her to do that. I would recommend this doctor 100%

This doctor is basically excellent. Dr. Sheldon is so experienced and knowledgeable. I had an issue with my ears (insect went inside) went to ER, my primary DR who sent me to a different ENT and that one didn't seem to see it. Everyone said it was just in my mind until I asked my dr for a referral to dr Sheldon and that was when he worked hard and found it and removed it. Wow it was a relief and I thank him so much for his help. The place was very clean and nice and I was seem in less than five minutes after arriving. Defiantly go see dr Sheldon he is a five star dr. Thank you

Dr. Palgon was very professional. He reviewed my record and asked me to explain the reason for my visit. He listened and came up with some probable solutions which made a lot of sense to me, since my medical issues were long term medical concerns. I had some tests and a follow up visit was recommended. I highly recommend Dr. Palgon.

Everything was smooth and fast. Dr. Palgon was very professional, although I'd want him to be a little friendlier so that I can build a strong connection with him as a patient. With that being said, his manner was in a way that I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. The visit was a little shorter than I expected . Overall the experience was great but also it was expensive as well! One thing about the check in process is, although I previously filled up the family history and all my personal information through the app, I still had to fill those information up again in the office. So if you are tempted to fill up those information, don't, because you have to do it again (it won't take much time).

I love Dr. Palgon. He is kind, empathetic, and I felt that he really cared about me. He also is the most punctual provider I have seen in New York. I saw Dr. Palgon last year but had to stop because of a change in insurance--he called me personally to follow-up and to recommend someone in-network. I am now back on my previous insurance and the first thing I did was call Dr. Palgon for an appointment. He remembered everything about me despite the fact that I had stopped being his patient. Dr. Palgon was gentle and thorough, and took the time to make sure he covered all bases, even though it took a long time. I didn't feel at all like he was in a rush, even though I knew it was taking a long time for him to review my medical records. He explained everything that he did, and walked me through the state of my health in simple terms that I could understand. Really could not recommend Dr. Palgon more highly. Oh and--want to say a quick word about the exemplary staff at ENT Allergy & Associates: always friendly, professional and punctual. Love working with them, plus they are available early morning and late evening should you have a problem. A great practice overall!

He was great. Sensible, gave good advice, took his time to ask questions and speak with me. He was also willing to say that, while I had the option to keep coming back, I probably didn't need further treatment.
