How likely are you to recommend Dr. Palmer?

(Select your rating)
Dr Palmer and the entire staff are amazing! I had abdominoplasty and a panniculectomy (removal of excess stomach skin) I am exactly three weeks out now and I am thrilled with the excellent care I have received. I got an infection and the rapid and thorough response has been nothing short of excellent! As a larger sized woman most doctors said they would not help me until I lost even more weight than I already lost. Dr Palmer did the surgery and literally I feel like he gave me my life back!
