Review of Dr. Palmer

- in Shenandoah, TX |

WARNING... QUACK DOCTOR Bad bedside manner! He did not listen to me. I had a series of xrays & mris and he says there's no reason I should be in pain. I can't stand for more than 3 or 4 minutes and he reccomends physical therapy and to lose weight. I asked him how am I supposed to do PT if I can't stand? He says oh well. Didn't even entertain the idea that I am in pain. A degenerative spine and 2 bulging discs is no reason to be in pain???

He spends very little time with you. He is very dismissive of symptoms and patient concerns.

Review of Dr. Palmer

-Spring, TX |

Dr. Palmer rushed thru our appointments, giving us less then 5 minutes each time. He was petty when asked questions, I guess he assumes we all have the same knowledge he does. It came across as so rude and insulting. He rattled off treatment options and surgical risks, in less than 10 seconds. Totally unbelievable.

Review of Dr. Palmer

- in Houston, TX |

I saw Dr. Palmer after being in a bad rear-end automobile accident. He prescribed me to have an MRI. At my follow-up appointment to discuss my MRI results, Dr. Palmer said that he did not have the films. He said he was going on vacation for a couple of weeks, but someone from his office would call me with the results. I never heard from anyone. I left messages at least 10 times over 2 months,no one would ever call me back. I had to find a new doctor - & pay again - to get MRI explanation.

Review of Dr. Palmer

- in Houston, TX |

After two years of trying virtually everything (PT, meds, steroid shots in the spine) for debilitating leg pain & nerve damage caused by a herniated lumbar disc, Dr. Palmer performed surgery in November 2014. I was terrified to have back surgery but he patiently answered all my questions and reassured me. He did an amazing job that got rid of my pain and allowed me to walk again. I was very pleased by his care and competence.

This Surgeon is dangerous and should have his Medical license taken away.
