The Doctor not very helpful. They rip you off... They billing department was rude
Salt Lake City, UT |
I made an appointment with Dr. Palmerin Jan 2017. i didn't get a chance to work with the Dr. Palmer who i made an appointment with but the guy at the clinic who i refused not to talk with but they keep insisting me to speak with him. A month and half later, they sent me a bill to pay out of my pocket for almost $200 for not even worked at all with the Dr. i made an appointment with. Very very disappointed... I felt i have been ripped off for the service i did not get

I came to Dr. Palmer for problems of a hoarse voice and inflammation in my throat. I never felt that he took me seriously or cared about my problem. When I finally got fed up and wanted to find another doctor I asked for a copy of my records. Upon reviewing my records, I noted that the majority of his notes from our first appointment were comments about my weight. He wrote a full paragraph describing how fat he thought I was and said very little about the presenting problem. Horrible.

Fixed my nose. It is great to breath with my mouth closed. I am very pleased.

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.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
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.
