Review of Dr. Palmer

Dr Palmer is very personable. He listens to everything you have to say and makes you feel very comfortable. He assured me that if there were any issues or questions I could call him anytime. He made me feel very comfortable and look forward to visiting with him. I would strongly recommend him to anyone.

Review of Dr. Shorter

- in Bonaire Ga |

I have been seeing Dr. Shorter for a year, and I have been so happy with her office. She’s always been thorough and never makes me feel like she is rushing through the appointment. When she switched me to a new medication, she answered all my questions and even made me aware of all the things I should know to look out for that could be problematic while on the medication. Her nurse is also extremely nice, and I’ve always had pleasant interactions with the rest of her staff.

Review of Dr. Palmer

- in Bonaire, GA |

This office, by practice, triple books EVERY appointment. They expect everyone to wait a minimum of 1.5 hours for even a basic followup. The staff is beyond unhelpful and outright rude. I would not recommend this doctor's office to anyone.

We love Dr. P. For twenty plus years, he has been a very trustworthy person and physician. He has never let us down. The staff he has now is fantastic. No complaints.

Review of Dr. Shorter

-Warner Robins |

I used to go to Dr. Shorter a few years ago and realized she was not ready for the responsibility. She didn't read her charts, she always had one hand on the doorknob like she was ready to bolt the second you stopped talking and she's not a good listener. She doesn't call to give you the results of your tests and at the time she was not affiliated with any hospitals.

I have been going to this practice for about a year now and am very disappointed. I had a MRI and the results were never read and Dr never contacted me I had to see another Dr to find out I had an issue and needed medication and possible surgery!
