Nurse Palmer is an excellent nurse practitioner. The office staff is nice. I would recommend her to anyone. I was nervous going in to a doctors office with the medical issues I was having and she made me feel at ease, listened to my concerns and didn’t come off as judgmental. She has a genuine interest in her patients health and well being, she also provided resources to me. Thanks Kathleen!

I love Kate! She is very sweet very smart and caring. She goes above and beyond taking the time to listen to everything I need to tell her regarding my health. She always takes good care of me when I walk in there feeling miserable. The office staff is superb! Can't say enough about Kate, the nurses and the rest of the staff! I've been a patient of this practice for many years, there is never a negative to say at all!

I have had many doctors appointments but none compare to Kathleen. Shes amazing! SHE LISTENS! I thought i would be rushed in my appointment, to get to the point and check out but i wasn't. She took her time with my visit, she listened, she showed concern, she gave me alternative resources. I'm grateful just for her listening to me in my time of need.

Where has this NP been my whole life? She was so thorough and took her time to explain things to me. She helped keep my calm and I felt like she really cared about my well being and wanted to make sure she covered everything I came in for. She even looked at past tests I had and was able to explain those to me too. I hope she stays at this current office because I will be sure to visit her next time I'm unwell. Thank you Kathleen!
