Patient Satisfaction

Dr. Palma’s ratings are among the best for Greenville Gastroenterologists, receiving a combined average rating of more than 4 stars on Healthgrades, Vitals and Google My Business. Among his highest ratings are his trustworthiness, ability to answer questions and time spent with patient. One five-star reviewer says:

“I heard about Dr. Palma from a neighbor who recommended him highly. He is a brilliant and caring Gastro doctor and I trust him completely. He diagnosed my Crohn's disease when other doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong. Without his help I simply don't know where I would be right now.”
