Have a musculoskeletal issue that remains unresolved even after treatment.

Dr. Nimmer is fabulous. He genuinely cares about how I'm feeling. It was a comfort the 2nd time I came in to know he was very concerned about the pain I was in and really want to help relieve that pain. He recommended another follow-up visit to see how things are going since I was having such a difficult time.

Diagnosed with cellulitis of my leg. Was told to lose weight. No antibiotic was given but a RX was given for compression stockings. Went to another Dr. who prescribed antibiotic and heat.
