Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Immerman "As a general surgeon and surgical oncologist I place great value on the relationship I have with each patient. Their story and why they come to see me is as important as their symptoms. It is the goal of my practice to give people information so they can make an informed decision on their diagnosis and/or surgical care in the most expedient way. Our staff works in concert with our physicians to help patients navigate both insurance and appointment information.

Our clinic is small and personal intentionally.  Our staff works with each patient to help you navigate the medical and insurance obstacles that can cause frustration and stress. We are here to help you!  Our goal is getting you back to your life as quickly as possible!"
