    Patient seen for:
    It was my first consultation with Dr Palmisani. I felt he had looked thoroughly into my case and was completely across the detail of the issues when we met. He explained everything he felt in a precise and clear way to me. His diagnosis was very clear and direct and he left me feeling confident in his opinion. I believe that is something any patient needs whether it be good news or bad. I would have no hesitation in seeing Dr Palmisani again, or recommending him .
