in Aylett VA |
One of the best colorectal surgeons in this state. An excellent surgeon and excellent bedside manners. This is not what I heard, this is from experience.
in Richmond, VA |
From the initial consult I knew I had the right doctor for my situation. He was very upbeat, positive and honest. From that point through surgery, recovery and post op visits Dr Timmerman was awesome. His sense of humor helped me through some difficult times. He cares about his patience and doesn't treat them as a number on a chart. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you need a surgeon for colorectal issues, this man is the man for the job..............

He's a very busy because he's an excellent physician, making it worth the wait. Appointments are frequently cancelled due to surgery schedule but because his reputation precedes him his patient load is high. He has a great bedside manner and makes you feel very comfortable with his expertise. His office staff is not the most efficient so you have to be persistent with requests and follow up calls
