Patient Reviews

  • Staff was polite and efficient-not distracted. Dr. Palmer’s nurse and the doctor himself spent time with me. Radiology in-house with great techs-got me back in the exam room quickly. I felt Dr. Palmer gave me his full attention and concern, fully explaining everything and making sure my questions were answered.

  • Dr Palmer explained what was going on with my knees and what to expect moving forward. Looking forward to getting my new knee. I feel like I am in very good hands

  • Dr Palmer was very informative with my questions pertaining to a future knee replacement. His assistant, Serenity was also very good letting me know the pre and after surgery procedures. They even have me taking 2 pre surgery physical therapies to learn stretching and strengthening which will aid in my complete recovery

  • Absolutely the best, very respectful and courtesy. They take the and ask questions about what is going on with your problems. Did more on my first visit than the other doctors did in five months. Highly recommend this group.

  • The facility was clean and easy to find. The staff are friendly and attentive to your needs. I had a very, very short wait and got back to the examination room within just a few moments of being checked in and then just a few moments later was already being seen by the doctor and his assistant. Needless to say, the outcome was everything I hoped it would be. I would recommend Dr. Palmer to any and all of my family and friends.

  • I have been treated by Dr. Palmer for several years now. His care, concern and knowledge of orthopedic issues make him the total physician package. I trust him totally. He is always kind, attentive and the best surgeon anyone could ask for. He recently performed a total knee replacement for me. My surgery went beautifully, full recovery, and he has given me my left knee mobility back. I highly recommend Dr. Palmer, an excellent and skilled surgeon!

  • I met with Dr. Palmer at Signature Orthopedic to discuss my knee pain. I was very interested in the robotic replacement with reduced recovery time. He thoroughly explained the process and answered all my questions. I was very happy with my decision and feel safe in his care. I’m scheduled for replacement and can’t wait to recover.

  • My sister and my mom have been patients for knee issues with Dr. Palmer and he’s been outstanding! I overheard our pre op nurse this morning during intake (Kaleb-who was so sweet) say good morning to him and Dr. Palmer made sure he came over to Kaleb to say good morning and that he appreciated Kaleb and Kaleb’s response to us was “that Dr is so awesome, he’s the best of the best, everyone loves him” that speaks volumes to me as a nurse’s daughter.

  • If anyone is looking for a good orthopedic surgeon I would highly recommend Dr Palmer at signature orthopedic. He has a very caring and compassionate surgeon. I had hip replacement surgery and he did a fantastic job he came and checked up on me while I was in the hospital and is continued to see me for knee injections because that will be my next surgery. I had to go to physical therapy after surgery and their physical therapists had their own little office right there at his office and they were fantastic in there they were all very friendly. Everyone in this facility that I have met so far has been very nice and very helpful. I am being referred to another doctor in that building for injections in my sciatic area and my lower back and I am looking forward to meeting my new doctor there

  • I'm a 74 yr old female and was very skeptical about getting my knee replaced. Now I wish I had done it sooner. In just 2 weeks post surgery, I'm progressing better than expected. Dr Palmer performed the surgery with the Robotic Arm and I highly recommend this approach than any older surgical technique. I'm hoping to be back to normal in a mere 6-8 weeks.

  • I can't say enough about how impressed I was with Dr. Palmer and his staff. So far the surgery and recovery on my right knee has been excellent. There has been little to no pain and the rehabilitation is going better than expected. Dr. Palmer explained in terms I could understand what he had to do, and took all my questions seriously and without making me feel rushed like some Dr's out there. His staff has also been fantastic, they have helped me out in so many different ways, they're just amazing. Thank you.

From my surgery (November 2022) to my first cortisone shots yesterday, such a relief. Walking pain free. Fantastic staff all the way around. Highly recommend them.

  • He was kind listening with his patience. I don't like the nurse giving me cortisone shots. First shot she sprayed numb and 2nd shot worse. She didn't spray more enough to numb. It was hurt when put needle on my skin. I don't think I want her again with shots.
