Dr Palmer could not remove my cataract and it slipped behind my eye.I had to have a surgeon to remove it,I had a bad experience..

Calmed me down, knew exactly what he was talking about! Go see him!! He is personable!

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...
