Best Doctor I have ever been to.
Dr. Palermo is very complete with regard to every detail of your care. He is always warm and welcoming. He treats his patients with personal care and insight. He treats you as a whole, not just your oncology or hematology issues, but every aspect of your care. I literally trust him with my life.

Excellent care and personal
Dr. Palermo is a great doctor who definitely cares for his patents and excepts nothing but positive results. He explains things in layman terms rather than over educated. Trust him with your treatments and he will not let you down. I’m so thankful my primary doctor recommended him for my continued care. If your appointment runs late, keep in mind there are many patients needing his care.

I have seen Dr. Palermo on 2 actual visits, I have talked with him on the phone once and I have had 4 Chemo visits with his staff. I feel he and his staff have handled my cancer in a very professional manner. He and his staff have made me feel comfortable in the treatment I am receiving.

I like Doctor Palermo a lot. My concern is the lack of information and follow up regarding my treatment. I have had dietary problems since early February and continued to lose weight (40 lbs in all) and this has not been addressed since I began treatment until today. Today I explained to Kate the PA my concerns and she gave me some useful dietary information vi think this should have been addressed at the beginning of of my treatment in August. The staff at CancerCare are always kind and caring and a m very satisfied with that

I am a transplant from NY to FL and needed to get a new Oncologist. I was treated for Breast Cancer about a year ago and so far I am cancer free. I enjoyed meeting Dr. Palermo. I am taking a drug called Letrozole which I have to take for at least 5 years. Unfortunately, one of the side effects is hot flashes and sweats. Dr. Palermo prescribed a drug for me that greatly reduces the side effects. Thank You Dr. Palermo!
