Wonderful bedside manner. Informed me of everything that was going on and gave me all of my options. Staff was very professional and friendly.
First, I have never needed to go to a Podiatrist. Fortunately for me, this was my first experience. I came to the office a little early. The Staff greeted me when I came in, I needed to fill in some paperwork, and very quickly I was in the room with Dr. Branch's nurse, who was looking at my foot issue and listening to my explanation. Dr. Branch came in a few moments later. He listened intently to my concerns and the story of my issue. He looked at my affected foot and immediately gave me his prognosis, asked for permission to perform a simple procedure, and started. As he performed the procedure he was telling me what he saw, what his opinion of the issue, and how to treat the work post excision of the area. Dr. Branch is a brilliant physician, who has a disarming personality that allows the patient to be completely comfortable/trusting with what he does. LISTEN to what he says. He is very thorough in his work and words. He is interested in you and he listens intently what you say to him. I live rather close to this office. If you have foot or ankle problems it is worth you time, effort, and money to see Dr. Branch at one of his many offices. He is very to the point, quick, knowledgeable as the day is long, tenacious in his skills, remarkably interested in the patient's good, and has a really dry humor to which you must pay attention if you want to get the punch line. I am very thankful that I chose Dr. Branch and his staff. You will be humbled by the amount of work Dr. Branch does and the cost was way below the effort of Staff and Dr. Branch's work to ensure you problem is solved or in the process of healing.
He was great, answered all my questions, and I left with the information I needed.
He knew what he was talking about and made me feel very comfortable. I am happy with the plan of care we went with! I am happy that I choose this doctor!
Very personable and receptive to my somewhat sarcastic humor. Was very informative and caring in his procedures. Would definitely return if I need future procedures are needed.
I was having a nail removed today. I was very nervous but Dr Branch ashored me that it was natural to be nervous. He was very knowledgeable and confident that it put me at ease. It was as painless as he said it would be. I resently moved to Georgia and will be encouraging my husband, my mom, and my sister to make Dr Branch there doctor as well. Thank You Dr. Branch for making my visit a good experience. I will definitely be back.
Dr. Branch and his staff are very friendly and professional and get you in and out with great service
Everyone including the Doctor was; professional, courteous, and efficient.
Dr Palmer listened to all my concerns and answered each one with a description of the problem and possible future treat. There was no rush to expensive x-rays and treatments. This in-turn made me feel very comfortable that I had chosen the right doctor.
It was so good to get some answers on my pain. Dr. Branch listened to me and responded to each of my concerns.
The staff were friendly and professional. The doctor was very thorough and has a sense of humor! Very nice people!
Upon walking up to the office, there was dog poop on the outside doormat. When I told the receptionist she said she knew but just hadn't picked it up yet... Upon waiting I. The waiting area, the receptionist asked a man who was waiting also to kill a spider for her in the receptionist office. The man could barely walk but still did it for her. Then when I finally got to my room, I was told the doctor wasn't there yet but was on his way...... Definitely not a good experience. Won't be back.
The doctor was incredibly nice and helped me figure out options for the issue i was having! I loved that i didnt have to come in just to have to schedule treatment on a separate day. In short, no funny business and I enjoyed that :)
Dr. Branch and his staff were great. Only complaint was the long wait, however Dr. Branch and his staff both apologized profusely and explained that it was due to several patients who required significantly more time to treat. I still highly recommend him.
He was sweet and gentle. He was straight to the point and tried his best to make sure we understood what was going on.

Dr Palmer reviewed my x-rays right right after the assistant took them and interpreted them in a way that I could understand my condition (Hallux Rigidus - turf toe). He learned by background (engineer) and took the time to explain my options and time frames in a way that I could understand best and allowed me to ask detailed questions in a patient manner.
Everyone was nice, the doctor was very informative and friendly. I will definitely be going back.
