About Me

Care Philosophy

I enjoy Family Medicine because it allows me the opportunity to work with patients not only on their chronic illnesses, but also healthy preventative measures. In addition, treating patients of ages from the infant stages to the elderly is challenging and extremely rewarding.

I saw Dr. Palmer because my regular physician was not able to get me in for an unexpected sickness. She was FANTASTIC!! She took a great deal of time discussing my concerns and making sure I was comfortable with the solution. Her attentiveness was very refreshing! I would highly recommend her!
