Care Philosophy

If you let the patient talk & listen carefully, they will tell you what is wrong. I find that listening is more important than any lab test, x-ray, or procedure to determine how best to empower my patients to receive the greatest gift: good health.

Very interested in me. Spent more than normal time with me. Seems extremely well informed. Just transfered to Dr Minnix because my previous doctor retired. Very impressed.

My senior mother has had Dr Minnix as her PCP for almost a year. The first visit went well as he appeared to be a "hands on" doctor which works well for her. Since then her appointments are rushed and she doesn't feel as though he listens to her. This last visit he walked out of the room as she was describing a recent fall. She wanted to get a flu shot but never got the chance to ask. She is discouraged and ready to look for another PCP.
We are very sorry to hear about this experience in our practice and would like to look into it further. Please call Danielle our Practice Manager at 727-397-0606 so that we can get further information to address the situation.

He always seems to be in a hurry during your appointment, and doesn't listen. He tends to quickly refer you to other doctors rather than spending any time attempting any basic diagnosis.
We are sorry to hear this and truly value your feedback. Patient experience is important to us at Palms Primary Care , so we will make every effort to address any concerns you may have. Your comments have been shared with our practice Manager Danielle. If you would like to speak with someone about this experience, please call the practice manager, 727-397-0606.

My first visit with the doctor was very pleasant and refreshing. He listened to my concerns and gave his professional advice. He seems to err on the side of caution which relieved some of my concerns. I would highly recommend a visit as a primary care provider.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share these thoughts. Our staff will pass along the kind words!
