Dr. Palmer is a fantastic person and doctor He's easy to talk with, compassionate, and has consistently helped my family and me recover over the years from neck and knee injuries. Recently I saw him for knee pain and he was able to diagnose and recommend the right therapy for recovery and through physical therapy (at his recommendation) my knee is stronger and the pain is gone. I highly recommend Dr. Palmer!

Dr. Palmer took the time to talk with me about my medical history and recent lifestyle changes to help me figure out why I began experiencing sharp knee pain again, almost 10 years after my first knee surgery. He ordered x-rays to make sure that no further surgical intervention was necessary. I left my appointment with Dr. Palmer feeling confident about the action plan he provided me with to alleviate my knee pain.

Dr Palmer has been a lifesaver for me first with back pain, then a few years later helping me manage nerve pain from a surgery from broken ankle. He takes his time to really understand what’s going on. As an athlete himself he understood it was not just about making the pain go away, but finding proper rehab and mechanics to get me back to the activities I wanted to do. He is a phenomenal Doctor, I highly recommend him To everyone, especially athletes. Great bedside manner.

I was referred to Dr. Palmer by my PCP. Dr. Palmer is not a surgon; he is a Physia-trist. He only handles patients with sports injuries or very acute conditions.
