One of the most experienced, knowledgeable and technically advanced ortho doctors in the area. He's replaced one of my knees and one of my hips. When I think I may have a joint issue, I always consult with Dr. Palmer first.

Dr.Palmer was very good at answering all my questions I had about my surgery and rehab afterwards. He took as much time as I need I did not feel rushed at all. When his nurse came into start the paper work for the surgery she was very very nice and answered a few more questions. I would highly recommend his office to everyone.

Dr. Palmer was very congenial and knowledgeable, experienced in orthopaedics, and did not rush our visit. I wish he had given us more options to explore before surgery. We asked about therapy which he agreed with but did not mention other options like injections. I feel confident going to him for hip surgery if and when we need to do that.

Dr Shawn Palmer is one of the best. My hip was replaced in November 2020. We are working on treatment for an arthritic knee. Dr. Palmer is very assuring, very knowledgeable, very successful, and cares very much for his patients. He listens and is thorough with his diagnosis and treatment. His PA ,Don Larson and his entire staff are amazing!
