Our experience with Dr. Palmos was awful. Had we known our pediatrician wouldn’t have been available, we would’ve scheduled a different time. Dr. Palmos didn’t wear a face shield or gloves. She did not wash her hands upon entering the room. She examined my infant’s mouth without gloves, and when the baby’s pacifier fell she tried to put it back into the baby’s mouth without washing it. She was very rude, and did not like when I asked questions for clarification. She also refused to treat baby for thrush even though the breastfeeding mother was being treated. Dr. Palmos did not thoroughly examine the baby for thrush. When asked about another concern on the baby’s body, she did not even look at it. We waited in the room for an hour and a half before being seen, and when she finally came in my baby was very fussy. Dr. Palmos visually and verbally expressed her frustration and lack of patience. I cannot recommend her. She is not clean, friendly, or thorough.

We moved from Atlanta in 2016 Medicaid chose this Dr. while we were in Alabama, the Dr. didn't change when we moved to Columbus Georgia. This is the worst Pediatrician office to deal with when it comes to having a special needs child, there were times I needed supplies, I was told waiting for the doctors office to send the paper work through, when it came to getting a denial letter from Medicaid for supplies they didn't know how to do that either. The specialist help me, not this Dr.
