Took 4mo to get 1st appt, Dr canceled day before & rescheduled 1mo later, Dr scheduled study, went to place & it was gross so I refused to stay, rescheduled for new location & went. Called office to inform of the issue at center left 2 messages never received call back from office manager. Learned at study Dr P is the medical director of the sleep facilities. It's been 3 weeks and have not received my results or any follow up. Was informed Dr has not reviewed my study yet & cannot make appt yet.

We saw Dr. Palumbo 10 years. Several years ago, we needed a pulmonologist - when he could not see us, we accepted an appt with another doctor in the office - given that we needed to see someone within a week. We need help now, and Dr. Palumbo's office refused to make us an appt with him, saying we can't switch doctors. When I explained the circumstances, and said I was not switching doctors, the nurse was rude. When I asked the name of the person to whom I was speaking, she hung up on me.
Excellant Doctor-. been a patient for years . But past year has been rediculous to try & get an appt. Especially if needed right away. I have very poor immune system & asthma, when I get an infection & really need him it's impossible to Get in. Girls handling appts are snotty Even making appt in advance, for regular check ups is handled poorly, several they call to reschedule for several weeks away. says he's accepting new patients but needs better time management for existing ones.
