Verified Patient Reviews
He was personable, attentive and efficient.
Very nice and very imformative.
He spoke so clearly and did not rush. He explained all my options and I am very satisfied with my visit. I hope I don't have to see him again but if I do it will be a pleasure.
Very caring and knowledgeable! Personable and easy to communicate with.
Very knowledgable and kind... I really liked Dr. Palmer and would highly recommend him.
Everyone at the clinic was very professional and friendly. Dr Palmer spent plenty of time with me and I did not feel like I was just in the production line. As a runner, I felt he was very attentive to my particular needs/issues. I feel very confident with him performing my upcoming surgery.
Not engaged with patient. Offer very few ideas, options, maybe preoccupied.
Very friendly :) He gave me lots of information - extremely helpful!
Dr. Palmer was great, super easy appointment, very informative. Great bedside manner and easy to talk to.
I had an overall positive experience at the Foot Doctor. Dr. Palmer was friendly, took time to address all my issues, explained what was going on, and prepared a treatment plan for me. In addition, they made it possible for me to get fit for orthotics following my appointment with Dr. Palmer, without a prior appointment. That was a big help, since I live an hour and a half from the office. I would recommend Dr. Palmer to anyone having problems with their feet.
Dr. Palmer came in fairly soon after I was directed to an exam room. He was personable and listened to everything that I had to say. He laid out the direction that my treatment would take and made sure that I understood everything. He even asked me before I left if I had any additional questions for him.
Dr. Palmer was very informative and shared options with me in a very professional, caring manner.
Dr. Palmer was friendly, informative, and gave me several options in moving forward with treatment. He also has a great sense of humor. I felt very comfortable with him and would recommend him to others.
Very knowledgeable, timely, and helpful.
This is my first Drs. visit since moving to Oregon. The Doctor was patient and answered all of my questions. I received the necessary treatment and the whole visit was less than 30 minutes!! Thank you doctor and the rest of your staff!
Dr. Palmer was knowledgeable and very straightforward. I would recommend him to other patients.
I was impressed that they could do an x-ray in the office and determine what was wrong and path forward within an hour. They didn't send you out for the x-ray and make you schedule another appointment. I liked the efficiency of the appointment.
It was good and effective. Dr Palmer was great at providing the information about all the options and left the choice to me.
Real nice guy!
Dr Palmer was very informative about what I came to see him about and had a plan for what to do about it. I'd definitely go back for any other feet problems I may end up with.
I needed an appointment soon, and that was easy to obtain. Very happy with the attention and expertise I received.
First visit for pain on outside edge of foot. He put on a tight ankle brace which I stopped wearing after a day because it caused new pain just above my ankle. I did not go back.
Very professional, knowledgable, and friendly. A+ would see again.
Nice man. Finally someone who recommended something other than more pills, like the ankle specialist before him....who I gladly canned! Will see what the results offer me,and keep you in touch. At least this Dr. was assertive.Easy to talk to.
Excellent service extreme professional
I've had 2 major foot surgeries with Dr. Palmer & a couple of minor toenail fungus instances. He's professional, yet made me feel comfortable as we discussed my options. He is extremely knowledgeable & caring, taking time to explain everything, and I've never had to wait more than 10-15 min. for my many appointments, often getting called in immediately. Parking is plentiful with a little lot in the back + the street, & entry is easy, even on crutches. Do not hesitate to see him if you need a great podiatrist!
very easy. He explained everything and did not push for surgery right away which I like.
Very thorough. Dr. Palmer explained my condition and what he was doing. He was very friendly and personable.
Took time to give me all the options.
Dr Palmer is great. Both times I have seen him, he gives good and thorough explanations and yet gets right to the point. The staff in the office however always seems a little annoyed in dealing with the public. Not sure what that is about. Not a very welcoming crew. Otherwise I highly recommend the practice.
Very thorough and informative.
I'm disappointed in the prognosis, but that's not really the Dr's fault. :)
Very thorough, didn't feel rushed, would recommend this doctor to anyone with foot issues
Excellent, thorough, and professional. Gave a good explanation.
Very professional and informative
Dr. Palmer truly listened and held eye contact. I felt valued and my ailment was taken seriously. I highly recommend the services of Dr. Palmer and his staff.
Went really well. I was expecting perhaps just a consultation, but Dr. Palmer got right to work and fixed the problem. Personable and efficient, explained things well, and it didn't take long.
I felt really comfortable and he did a Great Job!!! Thank you!!!
He is very to the point, and kept the mood light, which I appreciated quite a bit.
Appreciated his thorough explanation of his findings and recommended treatment. Would have given a 5 star recommendation throughout except I don't yet know if what he prescribed will work! So far, very pleased.
Dr Palmer was very polite, nice and gave me good information and explanation regarding my problem. Highly recommend him!!!
Dr. Palmer had a very good bedside manner, knew what was wrong with my foot, and explained to me what I could do to better my chances of not having to come see him again!
Looking forward to getting my problem resolved.
Very thorough and knowledgeable.
I'm an RN and I found him and staff to be very helpful, friendly, skilled, and to the point, which I like. I felt I he knows what he is doing. He presented various options, and suggested the one he felt least invasive, with a high degree of success . The needed treatment was administered painlessly! He also presented me with alternative plans if more is needed. Thanks to them all. The only reason I didn't give a "highly recommend" is because I've only seen him once; but I will go back to him in the future.
My visit was very helpful and informative. He answered all my questions with a good sense of humor to ease my nerves.
It was fine, he's a great Doctor
very good, he takes time for you and gets the facts and is very helpful.
Very thorough, professional and personable!
Dr. Palmer is great, but his staff seemed to be confused about the interaction between patient--ZocDoc--provider's office. My appointment time according to ZocDoc was 4:15pm, but the office said I was late and should have been there at 3:45pm for my 4pm appointment to fill out paperwork. I informed them that the paperwork had all been completed via ZocDoc and that there was a discrepancy in appointment time between the two of them. I'm not sure where the fault lies, but it added a little extra frustration and stress to my appointment, which should have been avoidable; especially since I planned and prepared ahead of time to make it easier, not more frustrating.
Excellent visit. Very patient with all my questions.
Dr Palmer was very professional and thorough. He took his time with me, assessed my condition and treated it appropriately. I was fitted for my custom orthotics which I will have in one week! I will highly recommend this practice to my friends and family.
Bueno es muy buen doctor y claro que lo recomendaria.
Dr. Palmer was the best podiatrist I have ever seen. He was very gracious and took the time to listen. He made me feel comfortable right away and did an amazing job!

No complaints, nice professionalism with humor......thanks!
Really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Palmer. Look forward to my follow up visit in 30 days. Great staff as well.
I liked him very much. He is very easy to talk to and talks in terms everyone can understand. I felt his listened to me and my concerns and answered all my questons.
I feel like Dr Palmer really listened to me, he didn't push any treatment on me that I didn't want. He came up with alternative solutions that fit me. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Caring and knowledgable.
