Dr. Palmer is light years ahead of any Plastic Surgeon I have met, and I have met alot. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Palmer's Sincerity, and he took the time to listen too you, and it was nice to finally meet a Dr. that took the time to really take his time and give his sincere advice, and he is not just a Dr. out to get your money. Not too mention the fact that he is so intelligent and confident in his work, he really puts you at ease and really wants the best for you. After my consultation I immediately had my procedure booked, and have had the procedure and everyone in his staff is super nice, and very professional at the same time. I would give Dr. Palmer and his entire practice perfect score of a 10 out of a 10,,,, If your looking for the absolute best Plastic Surgeon, you can stop looking and just make a consult with Dr. Palmer and you will be very happy.
