Dr. Palmer is knowledgeable and caring and always willing to answer questions.

Didn't have to wait, everyone was very professional and helpful

August 28, 2018

I was devastated when my previous cardiologist retired. I expect my cardiologist to be the best in their field and he truly was. When Dr. Palmer became my cardiologist, I was immediately very impressed with her knowledge, her skill , her personality, and her genuine caring for me as a patient. I feel that I once again, have "the best in the field".

provider was friendly, professional, & knowledgeable.

August 21, 2018

this was my first visit with Dr. Palmer after Dr. Casaday retired. I thought she was thorough and treated me as if I was knowledgeable and educated which I often find offensive if I don't feel this way. She appreciated my perspective and offered great recommendations that I will take.
