in Zeeland, MI |
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

My first visit and impression of Dr. Palmer is that he is very competent, knowledgeable and thorough. He made my feel very comfortable and I left the office pain free, after two weeks of uncomfortable ear pressure. I was very grateful for his expertise and confidence. Highly recommend Dr. Palmer.

Dr. Palmer did a great job explaining his diagnosis and proposed treatment plan. On the day of my surgery, he came to the pre-op room and gave me a brief rundown of how the day would go. His confidence and professionalism put me at ease and made me feel very good about going into the surgery room. The procedure went very well and I'm happy to report I can breathe through my nose properly for the first time in 20 years.

Our daughter is 15 years old, has never had surgery, and has high anxiety. Dr. Palmer was so good with her. He took his time, explained everything that was going to happen, and left her feeling very comfortable with the decision to remove her tonsils and adenoids. Surgery day came and he was just as amazing. Explained everything to her, answered questions she had, and was very supportive of her. We were going to go to Devos but, glad we didn't. Dr. Palmer exceed all of our expectations!

Doctor may be okay but he needs a new staff very slow
in Grand Haven, MI |
April 15 had surgery from Dr. Palmer on my nose. I have lived with septum issues since age 18, now 57. I would say to everyone who needs this type of surgery to have Dr. Palmer perform it. I am extremely happy with my results. I had no bleeding and no pain afterwards. To breathe again....what could be better in life than that? Thanks to Dr. Palmer and his staff! Jim
in Spring Lake, Michigan |

I will definitely be recommending Dr. Palmer to friends and family. He is so kind, and explains everything very well. He took his time with us so we didn't feel rushed. I have noticed a huge improvement in both of my sons since their surgeries.
in Wyoming, MI |
I had an urgent issue and Dr. Palmer saw me right away. He ordered tests and followed up on the tests and a future appointment. I was lucky the tests turned out. I have had a couple follow up visits since then and now he is my ENT doc. He is very caring, listens carefully, and offers suggestions that will be helpful. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
