Patient Comments (5)
Palm Springs, CA |
Dr. Palmer has consistently been one of the best physicians in town. With the changes in medicine he still cares and make sure that patients come first.
Palm Springs, CA |
Dissatisfied with the care I received, unable to reach the doctor himself. Called about an urgent matter and was given no return call. Went to the office and was told "I'm sorry Dr. Palmer does not make phone calls. Three days later I'm in emergency surgery at Eisenhower. PA's are great for a cold, but I needed to talk to my doctor, not be told I had food poisoning.

Complete and total frustration with this office. No-one returns calls; lab tests are not ordered timely and results not shared unless you call and beg. Staff either does not know or not understand referral procedures. It was a gigantic headache dealing with this office. Dr. Palmer is nice but does not follow through. We have changed physicians and the difference is amazing.

Always plenty of time to answer my questions, and for me to ask questions.

Informative, detail oriented and patient - loved him.
