Henderson, NV |
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.

Dr Sean Palacious performed complex inner ear surgery in January. My wife & I met with him yesterday as our first followup. We are totally satisfied with every aspect of his procedures. It is scary having ear surgery. However, Dr Palacious & his staff are making the process very comfortable. We are very confident that he has complete understanding of my problem and is very experienced in resolving the situation over the next year.Also, he has an extremely pleasant professional personality.
