I've had Dr. Palmer as my doctor for many years, in all those years he has never waivered from being the same kind and compassionate Doctor as he was in the beginning. Always a good listener, always a thorough exam, takes the time to explain any questions one may have. I would and have recommended Dr. Palmer to anyone looking for great doctor.

Dr. Palmer is the best physician I have ever had. He always makes time for me and if busy he calls me to inquire about what is going on. He has had to refer me to other Drs for specific surgeries or injuries and has always given me the very best care. I am so happy to have him as my primary care physician. Amy Halvorsen
