Care Philosophy

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!Read more

Chicago, IL |
Excellent doctor, highly recommended. I went to Dr Zimmerman 5 years ago with 2 pilonidal cysts and he gave me a successful cleft lift that changed my life for the better.
in Waukesha, WI |
My son had two previous pilondial surgeries that were not successful. I did an internet search and found Dr. Immerman. We were desperate and my son had been through so much. His staff is beyond amazing and accommodating as many of their patients travel from all over the United States and Canada to see him. Luckily we only live three hours away! I would have flown in from China to see him! He is beyond amazing. He saved our son's life- he will now have a normal life. What an amazing experience.
