Dr Palmer and the entire staff are amazing! I had abdominoplasty and a panniculectomy (removal of excess stomach skin) I am exactly three weeks out now and I am thrilled with the excellent care I have received. I got an infection and the rapid and thorough response has been nothing short of excellent! As a larger sized woman most doctors said they would not help me until I lost even more weight than I already lost. Dr Palmer did the surgery and literally I feel like he gave me my life back!

Dr Palmer is a wonderful doctor. I’m so happy I went to him for my tummy tuck and breast lift! At 5 weeks today, I look amazing! He’s a perfectionist and I’m going back for a Brazilian Butt lift with him in a couple weeks to finish up my mommy makeover. No regrets and only get happier by the day. His entire staff has been wonderful and I couldn’t be happier with his work! I can tell by looking at my body that he takes pride in what he does and I have full faith in him!

I cannot say enough good things about Doctor Palmer and his staff. They were warm and comforting, answered all my questions, and put my nerves at ease. I couldn’t be happier with my results. I went from an A to a full C, and my breasts are beautiful! I really liked that the surgery was done on-site, so there was no additional fee for an OR at our local hospital. I healed quickly, and 6 weeks post op can hardly see any scarring. I would do it all again, I am blown away by Dr. Palmers work!

Dr. Palmer has done a great job on my leg liposuction and thighplasty. I'm a 35 year old mother of two. I will be having another surgery with Dr. Palmer!! I would highly recommend him.

I would recommend Dr. Palmer anytime. His staff is outstanding and he is all around caring and understanding. A little background, I have battled the mid-section bulge for many years. I got serious and lost 25 lbs, but still had the "spare tire". I finally decided to do something about it, and it was the best decision I have ever made. My self-esteem is back I don’t mind seeing me in the mirror. They really understood what I needed and the end results were way above my expectation! Thank you

I had a tummy tuck, repaired umbilical hernia and torso lipo. I had a little rough patch first week after surgery. Back to work in 3 weeks. After 4-5 weeks you really began to see the amazing results. The staff is friendly and supportive. Now I'm going to their facial procedures. I searched for 2 months before finding DR. Palmer his pricing is the best!!! Just for the tuck alone I would have spent an extra 2-3k. He is affordable because he has a surgery room at his office which shaves the cost.
