I have been a patient of Dr Nimmer for many years, even using his services instead of using the PPO's through the insurance of the hospital I work for. I have often recommended him to others seeking primary care physicians, and will continue to do so. He is extremely professional, caring and knowledgeable. I have the utmost confidence in the treatments and cares he suggests, and feel that he listens to me and addresses my concerns, making me an important part of the treatment team and follow-up recommendations.
