    How was your appointment with Dr. Palmer?

    Sep 25, 2020
    I'm not surprised that Dr. Palmer gets such high marks and glowing reviews. He saved my vision and I'm very grateful for his care. I have a genetic eye problem that would have made me blind ultimately. He's patient, humble, listens well, and knows his stuff.
