I met Dr. Schirmer in 2011 and had open gastric bypass along with hernia repair. Then in June 2016 I had to repair my hernia again by Dr. Schirmer as of this writing I'm doing good and look forward to a speedy recovery. My experience has been great with this doctor. He will explain and answer any questions you have.

I first met Dr. Schirmer in 2004, my weight was 337. He is without a doubt the most sincere physician I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Everything he told me was true from the first encounter to the last. I have made multiple referrals for his services. I've told those if they were not willing to do everything he told them to do they would only waste his time. I would love to have an appointment to thank him and for him to see that I continue to follow his instructions to the letter.
