May 03, 2024
From the time I met Dr. Timmerman, through surgery and post op, this experience had been stellar. Everyone was simply outstanding. I would highly recommend Dr. Timmerman to anyone in need of knee surgery. Unmatched professionalism, super friendly & easy to talk to. Can I give 10 stars?
