The best Dr I have ever met very helpful and knowledgeable and professional that also goes with the staff.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Palmer is incredibly intelligent, professional and kind. I met with Dr. Palmer regarding wounds on my legs that could not be healed. The wound center told me my wounds could have an underlying GI problem and seeing a specialist might help my wounds. A friend at work recommended Dr. Palmer as "the best" and she is correct. Dr. Palmer was thorough on my first visit and knowledgeable about the condition that the wound care thought I might have. I highly recommend Dr. Palmer.
