Wonderful Doctor
My wife and I have been seeing Dr Palmer prior to his becoming a concierge doctor and immediately recognized his talent for both medicine and patient care. When Dr. Palmer decided to go into his current practice he asked us if we would like to keep seeing him and we jumped at the chance. He has always been able to be contacted, fill prescription requests and while in another hospital not associated with RUSH follow my day to day progress and kept abreast of my treatment. I would and do recommend Dr Scott Palmer.

Superb Doctor
Dr. Palmer has treated me since 1990. Even though I now live in Florida, I travel to see him at least twice a year. He would certainly be my go to doctor should I ever need a second opinion, and all the specialists he has recommended over the years have also been great. Office visits are always on time and Dr. Palmer ‘s knowledgeable care is matched by his warmth and compassion.

I have been Dr. Palmer's patient for more than 25 years. He is a kind, compassionate doctor with excellent diagnostic skills. He is always available to provide consultations when needed outside of office visits. I highly recommend him.

I am a long time patient of Dr Palmer. He is easy to talk to. Is very proactive as regards any problem. Treat it early before it becomes a bigger problem. A couple of minor things have popped up over the years and I have been able to get right in to see him. I would highly recommend him for someone looking for a primary care physician.

Having been a patient of Dr. Palmer for over a dozen years I have had only excellent care from him. Aside from the yearly exams, if any issue came up at any time Dr. Palmer responded to me promptly, by phone or text. Additionally, Dr. Palmer has many very fine colleagues in case a referral for a specialist is necessary. Dr. Scott Palmer is a fine doctor with whom I have complete trust and comfort. I look forward to having him continue to help me stay active and healthy in the years to come.

Scott is an incredible doctor but he connects with his patients as a friend as well. He has been my doctor for approximately 20 years and two of his former partners for 23 years before that. He is easily accessible for appointments but also by email, phone, or text. While I no longer live in Chicago, Scott is still my doctor. When in Chicago, I see Scott on at least an annual basis. I rely on his expertise in virtually everything I do medically. He is an excellent diagnostician. I feel blessed to have this talented and caring man as my personal physician.

As I have stated in previous reviews, I've had Dr. Scott Palmer as my physician for over 25 yrs. In all that time he has always been professional, caring, thorough in any exam given and genuinely concerned about my well being. Another plus is he sends monthly newsletters so his patients are kept informed with any new medical advances,alternative treatments and life changes that can be done to improve one's health.
