Dr. Palmer has helped me from early 2015 thru the present. In 2015 I had some business issues which caused me a lot of anxiety---- afib and other issues and there was a possibility I may have an enlarged aorta. Dr Palmer monitored me and my situation and my personal (business) situation changed for the better and after monitoring my situation, I am back to normal with a couple of medications. I cannot say enough great things about Dr Palmer. He really, really cares about his patients. Great guy.
