I was assigned dr. Palmer due to new marketplace insurance. I have a lot of chronic conditions which are not necessarily visible, and I could tell that he was 'skeptical'. After giving me huge lecture about my psychiatrist-diagnosed ADHD hecut my medication in half. He also did not do bloodwork, medication, or a referral for my auto immune disorder despite me telling him I was diagnosed by a rheumatologist three years ago. I immediately changed my PCP.

He was very rude and very unprofessional and prejudice. For being a doctor he should practice what he preaches.........
