The Best

I had a gallbladder problem and I needed to have it removed but there were complications that prevented the immediate removal. Dr Palmer and his caring staff took the time to make arrangements to have the first procedure done on a timely basis by another very good physician. This allowed me to have my gallbladder removed within 3 days of the first procedure. He did the removal in about 1 hour and I was home 4 hours later. He is a wonderful person in addition to being a skilled surgeon with a caring manner and expert hands. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his staff to anyone who needs a great Doctor.

Great Doctor, The Best

Very courteous and professional. Never felt rushed. Listened and answered any question I had in great detail. Knew exactly what to expect before and after surgery. Was honest and helped to give a very confident and optimistic detailed explanation of the surgery.

I was greatly pleased with the professionalism, courtesy, attentiveness, and skills of Dr. Palmer. Although surgery is not a pleasant experience in itself, his care surpassed even my highest expectations. I certainly recommend him without any hesitations.
