Dr. Palmon treats patients in the hospital and clinic with a wide range of lung and airway disorders, including asthma, coughs, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pleural (tissue covering the lungs) diseases. He has a special clinical and research interest in severe asthma.

In the clinic setting, Dr. Palmon helps patients manage breathing conditions to improve their daily function. In the hospital, he provides critical care for patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) with life-threatening breathing conditions.

Dr. Palmon believes involving patients in their care plans is critical for the best outcome.

Seeing a patient come back better after their initial treatment is satisfying.
