Just not right

When a doctor tells you that your time is less important than his, after making you wait 2 1/2 hours to see him because you were 6 minutes late to your appointment, it's time to find a new doctor! Office staff, for the most part, is courteous.

Next Knee--Use Different Doctor

While Dr. Palmeri did his job, he was not the best to talk to. On two occasions he complained about other patients to me. He has his dog in the office who kept trying to lick my bad knee--after surgery, and while the Dr. did tell him NO, the dog was not very obedient. Moreover, he bragged that he would fit me with just the right knee parts as he had stacks of knees from which to choose, and he kept trying till he got just the right fit. Later I learned another doctor in the same group, actually has the knee parts made to order after taking x rays or something, and a company makes person specific parts. My overall experience with him could not be called more than a C if I were giving a letter grade.

Full House

My husband came to see this doctor on a referral by the Family doctor that we have. We were surprised that they were able to get him soon. So, we went and waited an hour. Called in, they gave him a shot and claimed that he wouldn't have a problem again. Correction: Never say that to a patient. He had an appt. for a follow up and one that he needed bad. Guess what they do? They call him on a Friday t reschedule because they OVER BOOKED. Not his probelm. They said it would be a long while before he could be seen. WOW! He will NEVER go back. He is IN PAIN and they don't care about their patients. They over book, and make patients WAIT to be seen. Then they have the nerve to call and reschedule because they OVER BOOKED. And have the nerve to say to reschedule him he wouldn't get in for a long time. What is WRONG with this picture? Is this doctor aware of how they are at the front desk? Do NOT go to this office!

Best Orthopedic Surgeon On Treasure Coast

Had both a Knee replacement and hip replacement and both were outstanding. A little longer wait but he spoke frankly to me and gave me options before operating. He has a dog in the office which is also cool..

Went in for knee replacement surgery. Was dismissed and pain from knee and hip not adressed. Their answer....pain management!!!!!!!!!! Expect a vist with Palmeri's german shepherd in the follow up visit. Also expect to be treated with total complete lack of compassion and care

More about Dr. Norman A Palmeri

I feel that the care of orthopaedic patients involves decisions for both the patient and the physician and I like to enlist the patients in my decision making process, offering them multiple options whenever available, including the latest innovations available. I feel that every patient who chooses Coastal Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center should be treated like family, keeping the patients best interests in mind, utilizing the utmost concern in determining treatment and quality of care.
