hi great people that cares about my heath thanks for caring about me
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 13, 2021
The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I am confident they have my best interests at heart.
August 13, 2021

I love when Doctors say That's normal for a man for your age[ ]
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
Dr Palm's Medical Assistant was extremely professional, informative, and respectful while performing their part of the visit's duties. However, she carefully kept her name hidden so I never saw it or had the opportunity to ask it. She's a keeper.

Dr. William Palm was so knowledgeable and well studied on the current pill that my husband needed to take for his blood pressure considering he had experienced a great deal of weight loss post surgery.

February 11, 2021
The entire medical team is exceptional. I have always been treated with the utmost respect from everyone in the office.But if I have to pick anyone that stands out, I would say, aside from Dr. Palm himself, his medical assistant , Blanca is great.Her pleasant, happy personality is so refreshing. And the fact that she is knowledgeable about what my needs are and how to prepare for my visit with Dr. Palm is great.
February 09, 2021
I have usually felt that physician appointments are a bit rushed. The teleconference with Dr. Palm was more relaxed and I had sufficient time to get all of my questions and concerns addressed. That said, I will be happy to return to in-person visits.
February 04, 2021
Blueberries for all involved please.

August 09, 2020
I did not physically meet my new doctor. I met Dr.Palm via telephone conversation. Dr Palm sounds like a good physician, however i like a physical appointment. If an individual had a heart problem or another condition, you'd never know! I think it's a MUST to physically see a doctor! Especially a primary doc! But, Dr.Palm i give you 5 stars already! Oh, and 5 being the highest.
August 09, 2020
The personal at this facility have always been courteous and professional. I will always stay at this facility.

Dr. Palm provided excellent patient service I needed to schedule schedule a procedure and he arranged for it quickly. He was very helpful and understanding. The woman I spoke to the day before scheduled a phone appointment with Dr. Palm for the next morning I was very happy the matter could be handled by phone. Also, the woman I spoke to who got the information that was needed prior to the conversation with Dr. Palm was friendly and professional. (I unfortunately don't have either name)I was very impressed with each person with whom I had contact.
July 30, 2020
First rate doctor!
July 29, 2020
Unfortunately I don't have specific names but from the promptness of answering my My Chart request for an appointment, to scheduling a call with Dr Palm, to the professionalisms of the initial call and the connection to Dr Palm was professional and helpful. Dr Palm then listened, understood and helped me. Everything about this was outstanding. I think Asante Physician Partners have taken great care of me from start to finish.

In [DATE], at the holiday season, Dr. Palm was away and I needed to see a doctor. Dr. [ ] agreed to see me, so I drove from Mt. Shasta, CA, where I live, and he saw me. His attention to detail was instrumental in determining that I had pneumonia. He prescribed the appropriate anti- biotics and was exceptional in the following weeks (for follow-up). I am extremely grateful for Dr. [ ]' expertise and attention to detail. He listened to everything I had to say to him about how I was feeling. He paid very close attention to the anti-biotics he prescribed me because of allergies I have and medications I currently take. Asante is fortunate to have Dr. [ ] in this office. [NAME]
May 04, 2020
I am a relatively new patient to Dr Palm. I have had, or also have, 6 to 10 doctors since coming to the valley 20 years ago. He is the most thorough and the best listener I have encountered.. He also seems to possess a broad knowledge of medicine in general.
