About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I am passionate about caring for patients and optimizing their health. I practice the full spectrum of family medicine, providing care for all individuals from newborns to geriatric patients.

I specialize in men’s and women’s health, adolescent medicine, health promotion, mind-body practices, preventive medicine and disease management. I provide treatments for arthritis, diabetes, asthma, anxiety, depression and other conditions. I love helping my patients to stay healthy so they can achieve their goals in life.

I enjoy the community here at Ohio State, and the resources for patients are outstanding.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, cooking, exercising and listening to music.

    I LOVE Dr. Palmer. She is kind, down to earth, respectful, and clearly is up to date on research. She listened to every concern I had, answered my questions well, and I never felt rushed by her. I've already recommended her to friends.

    Dr. Palmer was genuinely concerned for my husband and me when we contracted COVID. She even agreed to see me in person when I had COVID related symptoms even when there was still a possible risk to infect others. When she is not familiar or possess expertise in any area, she promptly refers specialists.
