Dr. Darrell Palmer's Ratings
We have had one or more of our kids in his care for 17 years. I would recommend him to anyone. He is patient and thorough, and sometimes you might wait because of it. That said, you will know that your child has received a complete exam. Our kids have very complicated health conditions and I appreciate that he uses his laptop to go back and review what has happened over the years, med reactions, test results etc.. He is not blindly asking Dr Google for answers! My feeling is he genuinely cares about his patients and respects the opinion of the parents. I'm a fan!
Dr. Palmer was excellent with our family, very accommodating and helpful. I had been waiting for my child to be diagnosed for a while and after taking his time and examining all the information available to him he helped us making an informed decision that will change my child's future. I wish there were more Dr. Palmer's in Calgary and in Canada.
Dr Palmer was my Doctor when I was young and he was wonderful! I wasn't scared to see him (as seeing a doctor as a child can be) and he always made me feel important. He correctly diagnosed me and treated my health problems effectively. Very kind and knowledgeable
I would highly recommend Dr Palmer. He is patient and kind. He always listens to my concerns and answers my questions about my children. He is very careful and thorough with his diagnosis and recommendations. His staff are friendly and there is almost always a human answering the phone. My son loves going to see him and talks about him all the time. Most importantly, he understands what it's like to be a parent.
In April last year we brought our 7 weeks old baby boy to Dr. Palmer. After a long examination he said that he suspected our baby to have a serious neurological condition, possibly cerebral palsy. He also said that his vision was not adequate and his muscle tone being abnormal. Our baby did not display any obvious problems and all the doctors/medical professionals couldn't find anything prior to that visit. Based on Dr. Palmer’s very premature assessment and judgment, we had to go through numerous tests and procedures. Nothing was found and the boy (now almost 17 months) is completely healthy: walking, running, started to talk. Dr. Palmer caused us tremendous stress and suffering with no apparent reason. In our opinion he is too fast to make very serious statements to the parents prior to any tests and follow-ups and didn't appear to be very knowledgeable. Everything he said proved to be erroneous. We consider ourselves very unlucky that we came to see him.
