Doctor Palmen is a great man. He has helped me out many times with my struggle with alcohol. I have sent friends to him and will continue to do so. If you feel like you have no where else to turn, call Dr. Palmen!

This was the most terrible incompetent doctor I have ever encountered in my entire life, I thought he'd be perfect for me considering I suffer from a lot of the things he claims to treat on his website, he asked a bunch of questions about my family, and made me walk around and touch my nose. I left there with no kind of psychiatric management or counseling and refused to pay him. He charges $500 and he doesn't accept insurance.
