I have sincerely enjoyed being Dr Bill Palm's patient since our family relocated to Southern Oregon in 2017. He was a steady and consistent advocate for my health and encouraged a responsible �Mediterranean� diet which honestly is how I like to eat and cook. He celebrated with me when I lost weight and gained muscle through active cardio and lifting weights on a consistent basis.My family and I are relocating to Denver this summer as I am moving for work; however, I will miss Dr. Palm and our candid conversations about health. I wish him all the best and hope this message makes it to him.With warm regards,[name] (and his family)

Yes! I had a severe panic attack on my way to Dr. Palm.I got off on the wrong exit. I pulled over to park the car get my bearings. I called his office to let them know I was on my way but lost. My brother had just died had a untimely death. I was disoriented. The receptionist told me she would keep me on the cell phone and stayed on the line to help me get there. I could not stop crying. She was so patient. I put the phone on speaker and listened to her directions. She had so much compassion. I arrived. I met her. Do you know what she did? She taught me how to use Google map. I could not believe I could be taught. She asked me to call the office when I got home to make sure I was OK. I have never ever had a stranger be so kind. I was hysterical mess when I had my appt but my doctor, Dr Palm is the most patient and understanding. I will never go to anyone else.

October 20, 2021
Dr Palm is an excellent physician, always up to date on the latest treatments & medical studies, kind, not a pill pusher, always takes the time to carefully listen. His MA, Blanca, is also very responsive, kind and dedicated to providing the best of care to patients.
October 17, 2021
Dr. Palm is knowledgeable about my health concerns. He has been helpful in the diagnosis of issues and guiding me through the healing process. He will spend the time during my visit to answer all questions. I have no complaints about Dr. Palm. I do find that the messaging and patient contact system are poor. During the last month, it has taken 5 days to get an answer about follow-up concerns regarding care via web and telephone messaging. This is true even when directed to his assistants.
October 08, 2021
Yes, but didn't get her name.

I have @ 40 years experience dealing with Physicians on professional level (as a firefighter EMT, and as a patient advocate for scores of individuals) Dr Palm is the epitome of a family practitioner: Excellent listener, always follows up, educates himself on the latest meds and best practices for his specialty, reads my file before my visit. He is also extremely kind. I should add that as a husband, son, nephew, and minister, I have dealt with him many times on behalf of others, and his modus operandi is always the same. He's very concerned with not just the “complaint” at the moment, but your overall health and well being. Yeah, I kinda like the guy.
August 14, 2021
First time seeing Dr. Palm in person in a long time! He is very personable, informative, and answers questions in a way that can be understood. Video appointments work well, but there is just some times when you need a face to face, Dr. Palm does well with either video or in person.

August 01, 2021
Dr. Palm is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. He listens and respects that I have knowledge of my own body and trust me when I say I feel something isn't right. This is why I've had him as my Physician for 20 years. I'm gratefully to have someone I can go to any time I'm not feeling okay. He's always tried to guide me in the right direction if there was something going on that he felt a specialist would be more helpful in getting me to my goal of being healthy.
July 29, 2021
1. Reception and clerical staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. 2. My Chart works well for my needs.
July 21, 2021
