Patient Care Philosophy

“My goal is to educate patients about their disease process and how I can help. The ultimate decision to have surgery, of course, is their own. But my goal is to give patients a realistic idea of what it takes to undergo and recover from the surgery.”

“We have a state-of-the-art hospital, with state-of-the-art surgeons and state-of-the-art equipment. This is where you live, why travel unnecessarily when everything can be done right here at home with high quality and safety?”

- Paul Palmer, MD FACS

Area of Specialty

“Through general surgery you can treat the whole patient. We provide the region’s most advanced minimally invasive laparoscopic general surgery procedures, which provide smaller incisions, reduced scarring and quicker recovery, and also offer cosmetic solutions through the Aesthetic Laser Center.”
