It is ALWAYS pleasant when seeing Dr. Palermo and her staff!

Dr. Palermo is my favorite doctor. I´ve never had a doctor take the time and have the concern with me like she does. She is absolutely awesome. I am so sad she will be working in Seattle, I will miss her greatly.
December 2017
Very good visit, dr. was helpful.

"There was a time I never wanted to see another doctor & and cancelled my doctor appointments. Then I met Dr. Palermo. She changed my attitude about going to the doctor. I like her. I am confident in her. I am more relaxed and not so nervous. It´s like meeting a dear friend. She truly cares."
December 2017
I feel supported, my questions are answered, suggestions are helpful.

I have never had such a caring PCP. Dr. Palermo is a master at the art and science of being a physician. Such a vast knowledge base. She makes sure I am up to date with all my screening, even when I am feeling well. Amazing to me, a "precancerous condition" was discovered. Although referred to specialist, she is very much involved. Her smile and greetings are bubbly and sincere. She is an amazing diplomat and advocate, providing direction and encouragement yet allowing me time and autonomy to decide. She respects my desire to minimize Rx medication, educating me on ways I can manage tendonitis, for example. She is much more wholistic. Listens to my financial implications with treatment and insurance coverage. Utilizes MyVM to maximize communication, refer, and minimize visits and expense. Last and not least, she is my champion as providing necessary documentation. I try to have paperwork organized and ready. She willingly agrees to do, but I know it is taxing. The only negative for VM about Dr. Palermo, is that our needs are 24 7 and she only has clinic part time. Nevertheless, Dr. Palermo´s value far exceeds part time clinic hours.
November 2017
Dr. Palermo is excellent on all levels.
November 2017
I drive a long way just to be seen by Dr. Palermo. She is absolutely amazing.

Outstanding.
October 2017
Dr. Palermo is excellent. She takes the time to listen and discuss my concerns thoughtfully. Always provides natural options (which I prefer) as well as medical options to address issues I´m having. I can tell that she keeps up on studies as well as what has been successful for other patients. She has provided good advice in the past that works for me. She is a trusted partner in my health and wellness!
October 2017
I moved away to Bonney Lake, but like VM and prefer to continue my case with this location.

Christine Palermo is by far the best physician I have had in years, do NOT let her leave, EVER. She gets the highest scores I can give her, except for recommending her, she´s too popular as it is!

I am very happy with my doctor I wish we had more time sometimes because I don´t want others to wait I bring in a list of my concerns and we go through them fast and I feel comfortable with the information but then I realized later i missed a important item that I also needed to get a test for but the appointments are so far out. I really like my doctor she is really good. Thank you

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.
