He doesn't listen to me at all, very arrogant and didn't solve my problem. He just created more problems. I would find someone else to go too

Horrible post-op experience with Dr. Palmer's PA. She is rude. Staff can be rude as well. Go to a different doctor.

Was referred here and after 3 years of seeing him he told me to get a second opinion...i reminded him he was the second opinion. Oh you know what i mean. Jerk.

Poor post-op care, when headaches and right ear-ache developed after nasal surgery.Dr. Palmer's assistants, who interviewed me before each visit, were never in touch, and were not always courteous. Although Dr. Palmer ordered various tests re post-op issues, he never seemed intent on getting to the cause of the problem. He also denied that weather conditions could be a factor with sinus issues. Dr. Palmer told me to see my primary physician for the headaches and released me as a patient.
