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.

Dr. Sandra Palmer was excellent - Professional, caring, inquisitive, positive, knowledgeable. I am pleased to call her my physician I would recommend her highly. My wife will also become her patient.

So impressed with the clinician, Dr Palmer, and the staff. I recently moved to her as PCP, and am very relieved with my decision. I would like her to be PCP for my 12 year-old daughter if she accepts another new patient. Thank you for considering the customer service piece of primary care!
