I absolutely love seeing Dr April Palmer!!! She listens and is very thorough! I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a new Dr, because she really makes you feel comfortable!

I left one star because it was not possible to leave less. This doctor and her associates, Kristen Bass, PA are very difficult to deal with. Not to mention how rude her front desk is. They want to get you in and out as quickly as possibly. Terrible bedside manner or really I should say none. I am an older woman who has seen April for years and lately things have changed. I will be firing her as soon as I can find a new doctor that won't push me around or make me feel bad for simply calling.

I absolutely love Dr Palmer! She has always gone above and beyond to help me with any and all issues I may be having at the time, and doesn't flit in and out of the room with 'quick responses' like many do! She encourages me and I always leave with a more positive attitude!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!!!

Do not go to this physician. Her, the PA, and her office employees are rude and gave me the runaround and the PA Kristen Bass did not follow through with what she said she was going to do. Very poor service.

I put a one because I had to; I'd never recommend her or her PA Kristin to anyone. Kristin failed to fax over a prescription and when i noticed at the pharmacy, I called and had to go without it for 3 days. I called about having bad side effects from a new med and she didn't return my call and I'm still Without preventative migraine meds. She actually terminated my care because her lead receptionist lied and said my family who had the right to call was Hostile amongst other untrue things.

Dr. Palmer is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and caring. She has helped me through several health issues. I am thankful for her. She is a wonderful doctor who cares deeply about her patients. I always get my lab results back from her in a timely fashion.
