    Dr. Palmer performed a mastectomy on me, as well as my chemo port placement. He is wondeful, kind, and very thorough. I appreciate everything he has done for me, including finding me an amazing oncologist to partner up with against the monster that is cancer. His office staff treated me as if I was one of their family members. Being in my 20s and being diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer was hard enough. He and his office staff took care of tough things, so that I didn't have to.

    Dr. Palmer removed my gallbladder with DaVinci robotic assisted surgery on March 1, 2016 at Oak Hill Hospital. He provided me with excellent care, before, during and after the surgery. I specifically appreciated his knowledge, kindness, confidence and experience. He explained the entire surgery at length using the DaVince Robot, which was fascinating ...... I recommend Dr. Kevin Palmer highly....go to his website to learn more about this surgeon.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
