Dr. Palmisano's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Palmisano "I have been practicing here in the New Orleans area for over 20 years. I have a wonderful wife and three children, who are all very smart like their mother. I enjoy hunting and fishing, but my new love is table tennis. I was even invited to play on a national tour. I spend the balance of my spare time giving talks on cultural topics around the country.I have been practicing here in the New Orleans area for over 20 years.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Palmisano "My goal is to give every patient the best available medical care, while also treating the whole person. I care about my patients' entire lives, not just their medical needs. I try to let each patient know that I understand life is very difficult at times, and sometimes even medical issues have to take a back seat. I want my patients to feel they can talk to me about anything at any time."
