Alexandria, VA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Palermo for over 6 years but not any more! His staff has to be the most unpleasant of any I have ever had to deal with! They are borderline rude and do not show any concern for your needs. I just can't understand how a good doctor would put up with that. Either way my last visit and I have found another doctor just as good but with a wonderful caring staff!

Dr. Palermo is very personable and knows what he is doing. However, his office staff needs to be fired, especially those at the front desk. One in particular, Liz, was very rude to my wife, and to her primary care physician. She even sent a letter to my wife, telling her she is no longer a patient of Dr. Palermo. My wife and I both are no longer patients of Dr. Palermo.

Doctor seemed very nice in person. Follow up leaves a lot to be desired. His staff are sloppy & unprofessional & just simply rude. So if you can't speak with the doctor or even get your message to the doctor then it doesn't matter how nice or good the doctor is. Too many others to choose from that can give the same medical advice & care. If he decides to upgrade his staff then I would go back.
Wilmington, DE |
I believe a physician is as good as the people he/she has working around them. Dr. Palermo has some of the most unprofessional people working in his office as I have ever seen. They are rude and treat a majority of his patients like a complete inconvenience. His office is completely too busy. If you are unable to see your patients for 2-3 months then there is something very wrong. It's not the quantity of patients, it's the quality of care. Try getting to him. His staff is the worst.
Newark, De |
absolutely 0 chance of returning to Dr. Palermo -previously had great experience now when in need of an appt for a needed surgery and having a heart issue requiring clearance an apt per his nurse Liz is 3 months out and no chance to be able to be squeezed in to approve the surgery - maybe if her mother needed surgery she'd understand why this is totally unacceptable
