This office will not take me as a patient because I have Medicare and TriCare for Life insurance. This is third doctor office that won’t take my insurance. I’m a very healthy 67 yr old with no health issues. On no meds and I eat healthy and take nutritional supplements.

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.
