He serves as medical director for the Hereditary Hemochromatosis Clinic at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida, which evaluates and treats patients from all over the world with iron overload disorders by employing a state-of-the-art multidisciplinary team of specialists and cutting-edge diagnostics. Dr. Palmer manages a large clinical iron overload database to conduct research. Dr. Palmer also participates in research focused on gastrointestinal endoscopy, patient-provider education and other chronic liver diseases.
Dr. Palmer's research goals have direct impact on patient care. Improving patient health through education, limiting invasive and costly procedures, and more effectively identifying patients with preventable complications remain his aspirations. Genetic iron overload is a common disease in certain demographics, and focused research goals in this area are paramount to improving patient health.
