Exceptional thoughtful professional doctor and her staff

This was my first appointment with Dr. Palm and I was very impressed. The way they use technology to remind you of appointments, to do your initial paperwork was great. I never felt rushed in my appointment. I had to actually slow down because normally a doctor rushes you through, but this was not the case at all. She recommended some procedures and was honest in her appraisal. She was very clear she did not want me to spend money that was not necessary and I appreciated that. Definitely recommend this doctor and her thoughtful staff. They are obviously a great team !

Beautiful Botox Treatment

Dr. Palm is an artist! She did a beautiful job on my botox. I’ve had a number of doctors in the area do my botox, and she is by far the best. I wanted it to look natural, and not frozen. My husband and friends couldn’t tell at all. They just told me how great my skin looked. Thank you so much Dr. Palm. I will never have anyone else do my botox again.
