What People Say About Dr. Seth Palmer, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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!
