Dr. Schirmer was excellent and willing to sit down and answer all of my questions as soon as I had them. I had my gastric bypass and have lost a lot of weight with no complications so far! Mary, the kind lady who works in the office, was very honest and made me feel at ease when I was first thinking about surgery. I owe my life back to these two individuals in particular. I have followed all the instructions and am going to be thin enough to fit into my old high school clothing again.

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.
