Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Immerman "As an orthopedic surgeon with specialty training in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery, Dr. Igor Immerman treats all conditions of the upper extremity, from the simple to the complex. He has a specific interest and special training in peripheral nerve repair and reconstruction, and the use of the Ilizarov method for complex upper extremity problems. Dr. Immerman's philosophy of care is that each patient should be treated as a unique person and not by a "cookie-cutter", protocol-only approach. He spends time getting to know each patient, and works together with the patient to choose the right treatment, whether surgical or nonsurgical, that is best for their specific situation."

in Murphys, CA |
I sought out Dr. Immerman for his experience and excellent credentials. I was even more impressed with his patience and willingness to answer all my questions thoroughly. I changed my mind last minute on a procedure (that I pushed for, not him) and he was VERY supportive even though it was a major hassle for him to change. He puts the patient first and I will return for any Ortho hand issues in the future! His combination of experience and "bedside manner" is hard to find!

Dr. Immerman performed a surgery on my son's wrist to take care of a soccer injury. He was very open, clear and explained his treatment plan, options and risks in detail. His staff was friendly and courteous and my son's wrist healed completely...

Dr. Immerman is hands down the most inconsiderate physician I have ever encountered. He treated me like I had a psychological problem instead of a problem with my hand. I ended up seeing a different physician who figured out what was going on with my hand. Thank goodness for second opinions! Stay away from Dr. Immerman.
