    Dr. Palmer is the best mental health care provider we have seen. He always listens carefully, is very respectful, works with us on treatment plans. He seems to understand things and discuss the exact issues that need to be addressed. He has helped 3 members of my family so far and literally changed their lives. He has been a God-send to our family.

    Dr. Palmer was the most thorough and compassionate provider we have ever dealt with, especially in the psychiatry field. He spent an entire hour getting my daughter's history and was very professional and had phenomenal bedside manner.
