How was your experience with the doctor?DR Palmon listened to my symptoms, was calming and gave me a plan of action. Wrote everything down for me. Before his nurse took my blood I told her I was squeamish and she was very good at finding a vein and making me comfortable through the process.

How was your experience with the doctor?Fantastic visit again with Dr. Palmon. Office staff were very helpful and quick. I saw the doctor within 10min of arrival, and thanks to ZocDoc there were no forms to fill in. The doctor himself is very professional and clearly knows his craft. We went through my additional symptoms since last visit (5+ yrs ago), he identified what the issues might possibly be and what tests we could run to determine it. Exactly what I was looking for.

How was your experience with the doctor?Wow what a great experience. This was probably the best experience I have ever had at a doctors office. The visit did not feel rushed. I had ample opportunity to ask any questions. Dr. Palmon explained everything and gave different thoughts and opinions on my situation. I came to him confused and worried, after previously seeing another GI doctor. I left feeling relieved and with all the answers I needed. Hopefully I will not need to see him again, but if I do I would look forward to it.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Palmon, is the best GI I've seen. After having seen 4 GI's due to a severe GI problem, I can attest that Dr Palmon is one of the best doctors in NYC. Only he sought to go the extra mile and think outside the box. God bless him.
