"My primary Cardiologist who I have been a patient with for 25 years brought in Spencer Palmer MD for the cardiac catheterization needed to explore my Circumflex artery for a potential blockage, which it turns out, had ~90% occlusion, resulting in balloon angioplasty and stent insertion. My primary Cardiologist has consistently brought in the best Atlanta Cardiology specialized talent to help me get relief from heart issues, which I might add, are issues I am always proactive. Finally, WebMD should be cautious about patients who post issues regarding scheduling in-office visits. In the Atlanta metro area unless you have a regular 6 month or annual appointment pre-scheduled, asking to be seen immediately is not common because if you believe you have an urgent cardiology issue, you belong in the ER, and not trying to bump in line at the office. While I really wish medicine was more compassionate today, you can thank every ambulance chasing lawyer advertising on TV, billboards, and other ...
aggressive legal advertising (which was unethical before greed took control of the Bar Association) for the way physicians practice medicine and how hospitals need to pre-litigate claims. This ambulance chasing crowd needs to be curtailed and restricted IMO as it has become an expensive nuisance. (That’s why medicine is crazy expensive today) "

"Excellent, after two other cardiologists said I was fine, he was able to see from the same test I wasn't. After further review he had me schedule surgery as I had major blockages. He saved my life. He explains what is and has been going on and the details of post-surgery. I am not one to recommend anyone that isn't an outstand person in their field, and Dr. Palmer is that excellent MD. "

"I was a patient of Dr. Palmer. I called for an appointment regarding having Tachycardia and was offered a date two months out. Through intervention from my primary physician I see the PA 3 days out. The PA orders a heart monitor for 30 days. I have another episode of tachycardia and I record an EKG with Kardia. I try to get an appointment with Dr. Palmer but the office doesn’t even call back. I see another cardiologist who diagnoses supraventricular tachycardia and a subsequent CTA reveals 3 partial blockages (2 serious)"

"My visit with Dr. Spencer Palmer changed my life. He’s a great doctor who is professional and at the same time caring. He keeps you informed of your condition and listens to your concerns. I travel one and a half hours to my appointment and it is well worth it. I never wait more than 10 minutes of my appointment time."

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
