Dr Palmer was such a pleasure. She listened to my concerns and made suggestions for me to get more exercise. She was tactful but I understand I have a few extra pounds.

January 27, 2015

I really like Dr. Palmer and am always in good care when I've come to see her.

January 26, 2015

Dr. Palmer is an amazing doctor. I trust her judgement and have recommended her to others.

January 26, 2015

I always feel confident with Dr Palmer.

January 26, 2015

This was my first visit and I very impressed with the Nurses Assistant and Dr Palmer. They both put me at ease

January 13, 2015

Dr. Palmer is very approachable, and very believable. Down to earth--like a normal person.

January 12, 2015

Dr. Palmer is excellent! She really cares about her patients. she doesn't rush you, talks to you like you're a real person, very thorough. AA+

December 22, 2014

Was very good

December 22, 2014

Was a Great visit...

December 15, 2014

I was very happy with the doctor and will make her my primary care doctor going forward. She listended to all of my concerns and seemed very genuine in wanting to help

November 20, 2014

Dr Palmer was very attentive. She was patient and very careful to explain any side effects from my meds. She is a credit to her profession and I look forward to any repeat visits.

November 14, 2014

Dr Palmer was great. She came over to X-ray to see what was taking so long. Poor Gary was trying to figure out what was wrong with the computer system. Finally, Dr. Palmer said take the pictures and I'll read them here.

November 11, 2014

Did not see a provider, this was a nurse visit.

November 07, 2014

Very appreciated

November 07, 2014

Dr. Palmer was unhurried, even though clinic was running behind, and gave me the time I needed.

October 28, 2014

We felt very cared for

October 19, 2014

i understood she was going to recomend me for physical theropy and said they would call has now been 1 1/2 weeks since my appointment and no call...i dont have any idea who to call for that appointment... she also said she could give me a shot to relieve pain, but hasnt contacted me since my xrays at the end of my appointment.

I feel very confident in Dr. Michelle Palmer. She's very knowledgeable, doesn't request unnecessary tests or procedures and cares about my opinion or concerns. I've taken my son to her as well and would continue to do so.

September 29, 2014

Have been looking for a replacement for former provider Lori Witter, Dr. Palmer I believe is that replacement. She is not critical of mistakes you as a patient has made, reinforces the positives, provided encouragement without brow beating you as a patient. I appreciated the way I was treated.

September 26, 2014

Amazing! Super personable and easy to talk to. Not once did she "discount" what I had been feeling. It felt nice to have someone listen to me.

September 24, 2014

Dr. Palmer was wonderful. She included me in my care.

September 21, 2014

because of how long I had to wait I would not recommend this provider

August 25, 2014

all very good

August 18, 2014

seemed like she was in a hurry.

August 08, 2014

Dr. Palmer is great. she is very knowledgable and makes sure you leave knowing what is going on what treatments are and when to come back if at all

August 07, 2014

didn't seem very friendly. had to see her because my doctor is out of the office for a while. almost felt like i was wasting her time.

June 30, 2014

i kinda felt like she didnt take my problem seriously and wanted to rush through the appointment she was still caring but she didnt explain to me what was actually wrong til the end. once she explained she couldnt really treat it and it wasnt to that point yet i felt alot better about the visit instead of just feeling like i was wasting her time. however this is the problem with going to a new dr who doesnt understand your history i know what works for my body and the solution was short term and didnt work. i guess from now on i will wait til i know i have a sinus infection 100%, though my ent and previous dr's warned me never to do that because of how fast it progresses.

June 24, 2014

Dr Palmer is a great provider!

June 23, 2014

Good experience.

June 07, 2014

I just recently switched to Dr. Palmer and she has been very good. She always spends extra time with me so all my issues are addressed and goes into detail if I don't understand something. She makes sure I understand everything and always wants to help. she is a great Dr. I will be telling my family and friends about her!

June 05, 2014

Great! Thank you!!!

May 31, 2014

Dr. Palmer is exceptionally caring, knowledgeable and compasionate.

May 19, 2014

I don't think I'll ever leave this place.

May 17, 2014

I wish the care provider would recommend me to where to go for my mama gram and set it up for me.

May 14, 2014

Dr said that without an MRI she wouldn't be able to see for sure what was wrong, but didn't ask if I wanted to schedule an MRI or ask if I wanted more information about getting an MRI. In hind-sight I think I should have scheduled one.

May 12, 2014

Dr. Palmer was more informative on this condition than any doctor I've had in years. I'm sure I've heard some of what she told me before, but I've been treating acute conditoins for so long that this was just what I needed to be reminded of for daily management of my condition that often leads to acute problems because I'm not doing what needs to be done. I was very, very happy with the time Dr. Palmer took to explain what I needed to hear. Her explanations were clear, friendly, and included helpful hints I've never heard before from any doctor.

April 28, 2014

Very impressed with her and she didn't rush to prescribe antibiotics which I was very glad for since there was some doubt what I had. She was very thorough.

April 25, 2014

All good
