Personable and knowledgeable. However, Is spread too thin between offices. I was told I needed to follow up with him, and only him. Found out he is only in Holland one day per week so would be 7 weeks before I could follow up with him. This practice has doctors all over the place and no one in one place frequently enough to be available to their patients.

I was seen for an urgent issue and Dr. Palmer explained all my options and possible scenarios. He was very patient and helped ease my mind. I ended up needing surgery and he was great with pre-op and post-op care. This is a doctor who does his job because he likes helping people. I would suggest him to friends and family of any age.

Dr. Palmer is an all around great doctor. He is very personable, making you feel at ease. He is compassionate, making sure you know he cares. He stayed late on a Friday to treat my sudden hearing loss (needs to be treated within 72 hours of onset). He went above and beyond to provide excellent care. I would highly recommend Dr. Palmer to my friends and family!

Dr.Palmer was very professional , caring, explained things clearly, extremely llcompassionate during my biopsy. The staff are exceptional. My ultrasound tech was so thorough, very meticulous, caring. Katie did an amazing job! I really am comforted that if I need another ultrasound the same tech follows up with the same patient. They really make me feel like I couldn't have better care than their team of professionals. I am so thankful for their services.

Our daughter, Jayla, is 13 and had never had surgery before. Dr. Palmer explained everything to her in terms she could understand, was friendly, & put her at ease. He also explained everything to us as parents & what we could expect after surgery. He was very confident, reassuring & professional!

Experienced difficulty swallowing and breathing after strep throat. Dr. Palmer scoped my throat, made a diagnosis, prescribed proper medicine and the issue was cleared up. After care was more of the same. Outstanding medical care. It should also be noted that the staff was able to get me in quickly even though I was not a former patient. The service from his staff was excellent, professional, and friendly. Highly recommend
