Michael Palomino, M.D.
Born in Shawnee Mission, I’m a lifelong Kansan and proud of my roots. I was raised in Wichita and graduated from Northwest High School and then attended Wichita State University on an academic scholarship where I graduated summa cum laude in chemical science. I then completed my doctorate in 2007 at The University of Kansas School of Medicine followed by residency training at Wesley Medical Center. I am board certified in Family Medicine as well as a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and Kansas Academy of Family Physicians.
After completing residency, I was the sole practitioner of a traditional family medicine clinic through Wesley Medical Center, where I experienced the healthcare concerns that plague so many patients and primary care physicians.
I dealt with insurance companies that were making it difficult to provide care in the best interest of patients. Most insurance companies frequently denied medications and treatment plans. This led to patient dissatisfaction and physician frustration with being unable to deliver quality care.
I chose family medicine because it allows me to be closely connected to families and build long-lasting relationships. The approach at Atlas MD is unique and allows for getting back to the roots of a patient-centered practice. I look forward to developing strong and lasting bonds at Atlas MD.
