Dr. Palmer was raised in Massachusetts, earned a bachelors of science in environmental science from the University of Vermont, and made the cross country move to Oregon the following year. After working for several years in the health benefits industry he realized his passion for optometry and landed a position as a technician at a local center. He attended Pacific University College of Optometry and graduated with honors while working at a local optometry practice on the weekends. His clinical training included rotations at two busy primary care offices, a full-scope surgical practice, and a VA hospital.
Dr. Palmer will be working together with Wolf performing full-scope optometric care. He loves meeting new people and patients appreciate his calm demeanor and passion for optimizing their vision and ocular health. He is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Oregon Optometric Physicians Association.
During his free time, Dr. Palmer enjoys hiking, skiing, cycling, and spending time with his wife, Joanna. Most evenings they can be found honing their cooking skills and on the weekends try to get outdoors as much as possible.
