Approach To Care

Dr. Palmer believes that a true connection with his patients really makes practicing exciting and rewarding. Individuals come to see their OB/GYN with deeply personal and, at times, very troubling concerns. It is very rewarding for him to be able to offer treatments, both medical and surgical, that can sometimes change a patient’s whole outlook on life. Dr. Palmer also believes in minimally invasive surgery to get individuals back to living their lives more quickly than ever before.
