I was changing doctors due to my own doctor's retirement. They took a great deal of information over the phone and said they'd "check it out" and get back to me. It has been over two weeks, and I still haven't heard a word. I have no idea how good/bad she or Kristen may be, but their front desk...more

I like Dr Palmer. She's nice and informative and will refer you out to another doctor and make recommendations if you have trouble outside her scope. Her nurse and staff are always kind.

Both Dr. Palmer & Kristen Bass are very caring medical professionals. Both make me feel comfortable & will answer every question I have. Dr. Palmer often sits beside me & listens. She doesn't rush in & out. Their new nurse is great too. I feel I am in capable hands when I am sick.
