I have known Dr. Rimmer since he originally started in practice over 20 years ago. He is certainly ONE of the best, if not THE best ophthalmologist in Southern California. I am a fellow physician, and I personally travel over 1 hour each way to see him! He has my full trust and confidence.

Dr. Rimmer was fantastic at putting my 2-year-old at ease and asked her questions instead of directing them at me, she loved it!
