What People Say About Dr. Sean Palacios, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

New patient. PA did exam. Asked questions. Did brief exam. Tech came to take me for a hearing test. I asked why. She said the doctor ordered it. I asked to speak to the doctor. He came storming in very confrontational saying I had hearing loss. I told him that was the problem with second hand information. Not my complaint. He then stated that I did not seem happy. I agreed. He stated the meeting was over. I left. Don't expect to treated with respect by this doctor.if you ask questions.

After our first consultation with Dr. Palacios in January, we decided that he should perform a complex two part surgery for Cholestiatoma. He successfully completed the initial surgery. His follow-up visits were informative and involved an excellent staff, Now after having successfully completed the follow up surgery in October, we continue to feel that Dr. Palacious has all these attributes of a distinguished Doctor: Honesty, Integrity, Experience, Confidence, Dedication and Professionalism.

Dr. Palacios and his staff are wonderful and caring health professionals. Dr. Palacios is very caring and compassionate doctor. He explains everything to you so you do understand. Dr. Palacios put my first Cochlear implant in May 2016. I did so well with it I want to hear everything so I went back to him and January in did my second implant. It is so wonderful to be able to hear again! Thank you Darlene for asking the doctor the question I forgot to ask. Dr. Palacios and his staff are awesome!!

Dr. Palacios is a very caring doctor. He explained my conditions to me clearly. He referred me to the audiologist for tests and hearing aids. I work with Sarah Thompson, who is terrific. She will answer all of your questions and take all the time that you need to understand what is going on. I would highly recommend both of them!

This was my first time with this dr and it was the worst experience I've ever had. He made me feel so small. The way he spoke to me was completely rude. I went to him because people recommended him to me since I've been unwell for months now. I left with no answers and no treatments. Dr wouldn't listen to me regarding all the symptoms I've been experiencing as well as hospital diagnosis and he didn't even seem to care. I will not be returning to him.
