Dr. Palermo is really down to earth, friendly and is spot on with any problems that I may have. She took her time with me and didn´t rush through the appointment. I´m happy she´s my doctor...just wish she was more full time.
I love Dr. Palermo. Very kind, caring and thorough. Best doctor I´ve ever had at Virginia Mason Federal Way.
To bad all your doctors aren´t like her. She is great. Never makes you feel she is too busy to answer questions. You never mind waiting for her if she is running behind, because you know she will take time with you as needed.

Dr Palermo is always concerned about me & my health. She sits down & really listens to my questions & is familiar with my history.
Dr. Palermo truly cares about me as a person and as a patient. She is incredibly smart and I trust her implicitly. She is the best physician I have ever had in my life.
The provider always runs late, but when you see her she takes all of the time you feel you need without being made to feel she needs to hurry off.
Dr. Palmero was very helpful in helping me find treatments for my acne. She took time looking up resources online and I appreciated that.
Dr. Palermo is one of the best doctors I have been to. She is an excellent listener, is focused on the patient, assesses health problems, provides valuable input and diagnosis. She listens to all information before jumping to conclusions. She will have the necessary tests done to sort out the true health issue. She makes one feel very comfortable, and shows compassion and caring. Even though one knows she is on a schedule, she makes one feel she has time for them and truly cares about their well being.
love Dr. Planermo.I pray she stays around.

I am ecstatic with the care, concern and thoroughness of her attention to my needs.
Dr Palermo was very helpful and answered all of my questions. She has always been caring and attentive. I moved out of the area and I still drive 40 mins to see her.
Dr. Palermo never acts in a rushed manner and is always enthusiastic. I enjoy her because she keeps up on holistic approaches and is well-informed. I feel like every visit is valuable.
I have recommended Dr Palermo to others. She is one of the best doctors I have ever had.
Dr. Palermo has been seeing me for years and for the first time I finally feel like my care in under control. I feel respected and look forward to my appointment with her every time !
I was at a point that I never wanted to see another doctor, then I switched to Virginia Mason - Dr. Palermo. My attitude completely changed. Dr. Palermo greets with a smile and handshake - fully focused on my issue. Very GENUINELY CARES. Good educator explaining _____. #1. "Tops." #9. "The tops!" #10. "But I know she is too busy." Dr. Palermo.
Over and above

Christine Palermo MD is wonderful as a Dr and human being. I am a healthcare provider and I have extremely high standards. Dr. Palermo is exemplary ~ I´m am very impressed. thank you
Dr. Palermo & Gail Gomez are the BEST. I´ve seen many doctors during my illness but by far - she is the most intelligent, caring, a doctor who LISTENS knowledgeable, genuine doctor I´ve ever seen. A real keeper.
I would not worry about using words I can understand. A full, complete explanation is the best policy. Explanation of current research findings and policies should be provided, particularly regarding medications. There is room for greater explanations.
If Doctor Palermo and her assistant were not our primary care providers I would search else where they are that good! Being in customer service for several years and receiving what I need, and I get it every time from Dr. Palermo and her staff.
Dr. Palmermo was absolutely fantastic, she a is not even my primary care physician but... good care of me... visit. I wish she was accepting... patients.
Glad she is back - was REALLY MISSED.
Dr. Palermo is so caring. She makes time for all of my concerns. She is knowledgeable & compassionate.
Dr. Palermo is the best general practitioner I have ever had. She serves as the ringmaster for all the different specialists I have and does a spectacular job coordinating everything. I have poor health with a huge range of things wrong with me, but I´m confident in Dr. Palermo´s ability to deal with all of it. She´s not just my doctor, she´s a friend and someone I can talk to about anything.
Dr. Christine Palermo is outstanding, and the staff around are as well.
I feel Dr. Palermo is superior to any other doctor I have had helping me with my overall health. She is always trying to help with my health problems... and and I really feel she is the "best" doctor I have seen in recent years. I have full confidence in her. I sincerely hope I can continue with her as my "primary" doctor..she has helped me a lot and I feel she is a "great person" as well as a wonderful doctor.
She could explain more in depth to patients who have a college degree or higher.
Very best primary care doctor ever!!
Absolutely NO complaints.
