How likely are you to recommend Dr. Palmer?

(Select your rating)
I think the best way to describe my 6/22/20 visit is that I cannot wait until my next one in December!! Dr. Palmer has a very unique gift of not only presenting diagnostic information but more importantly, inspiring me to do better and better to lower my health risks. She gives me freedom to disagree on risk of certain treatments yet tacitly drives me to beat the risk algorithms or to otherwise prove them clinically flawed. The determination she instills is with me every day an by God, I want to prove I can attain my last and final weight loss goal, which is 100% my responsibility that I let myself become obese. If I can attain this goal by December, I will have lost over 60 lbs. over a 2 year period and my blood work and blood pressure has correspondently improved to near "perfect" levels (within AMA guidelines) in my opinion, probably "acceptable" in practitioner terms to a patient. There is always room for improvement and Dr. Palmer is a quiet yet powerful inspiration to me!!
