Great doctor, very thorough, made my girlfriend's father (chiropractor) extremely comfortable. Quick and out-patient procedure. Yvette in scheduling is a mess. Have Rosemary assist.

Second time I have come to Dr. Palmer for bulging disc in lower back. In each case he was extremely thorough and did everything he could to avoid any surgery. Very clear describing the multiple alternatives and allowed me to make my own decisions. Staff is outstanding and very responsive.

I was in chronic pain for years. Dr S. Palmer repaired a bulging disk and did a laminar procedure. It was the first time I was pain free for years, It has been 5 years, and although I have experienced a couple relapses, they have been far less severe and of much shorter duration.
Orange, CA |
The office staff is so unorganized that after two weeks of trying to make an appointment, I give up! I heard he is a good doctor but good luck going through the office administrator. I am going to look for another doctor and not waste my time on trying to get a hold of office coordinator, all you can do is a leave a message!!!
