Dr. Palesano is the best of the best! I became his patient over 10 yrs ago, as a teenager. I have never been left questioning a diagnosis or treatment. He has remained spot-on with every one of my appointments. His nurses are equally fantastic!! I cannot say enough about Dr. P and the quality of his practice!

Might I say the best. Courteous, good bed side manner, fast, efficient. Quick to get an appointment and helpful with all of my ear and sinus issues.

I highly recommend Dr. Palesano and staff. He was extremely kind and thorough with my visit. He had a genuine concern for my illness. His staff was so sweet and made me feel like I had been a patient for years and it was my first visit.

I've had many doctors, but never one so pleasant and caring. He gave me accurate medical advice for my diagnosis. He continued to work with me even months after my operation. He is great with children. All doctors should strive to have his upstanding bedside maner.

Mobile, AL |
Dr. Palesano did an excellent job diagnosing my problem. He had all the right tools and demonstrated tremendous competence.
in Daphne, AL |
Dr. Palesano has taken care of my 18 year old and 6 year old sons. He has always been compassionate, engaging and dealt with both of them on their level. He was able to distract my 6 year old son with humor, etc. so that he could examine him without my son experiencing any anxiety. We have always had a great experience with his staff as well and they work us in as soon as possible.
in Spanish Fort, AL |
Dr. Palesano is the only doctor I trust to treat my son's sinus issues. He takes time to listen to what my son has to say and then explains what is going on in a manner that my son and I can both understand. A+++
