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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
