I had cataract surgery on both eyes and my vision is now perfect. The right eye was legally blind and the left eye was about 20/80. Dr. Palmer is a skilled surgeon not a social worker or victim's advocate... If you need either of those you probably need more than an opthamologist...I could not be happier...

Dr.Palmer is very knowledgeable about what he does, but I would not recommend making him your Dr. If you are over weight and African American. He made racial comments about me and made jokes about my medical condition that I was not happy about he also tells you over and over to loose weight as if you don't know your overweight! I will never return to this office again and will let my fellow friends and family know how I was treated! Would not recommend him!
