Specialties

Dr. Gerrit A Kimmey has the following 2 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Internal Medicine

Super Wonderful Doctor!

Dr. Kimmey is thorough, attentive, and smart! As his patient, you really feel that you and he have a personal relationship where he knows your situation and cares about your outcome. When I first started this journey, I was an unremarkable patient-- just saw Dr. K every 3 weeks for only maybe 3 or 4 visits. I called on a weekend with an issue. Not only did he promptly return my call, but he knew I had a test coming up in 4 weeks and suggested we move it up to make sure things were ok. I feel I get excellent information about my situation, I feel he is as invested in my good health as I am, and I feel comfortable that I can contact him when I need. His staff are wonderful and I feel like they all are caring about me as a person as well as a patient.

Outstanding compassionate doctor

I have been a patient for quit some time, and when i was first diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer wasn't given much hope for a future. Until I met Dr. Kimmy, he has been a wonderful doctor. He has taught me to cope with cancer throughout the years. Many doctors at first told me a few days would be along time, however his response was he didn't see a tag on my foot that had a date of death on it. He is an honest man, even when the news isn't all that good, however will help you understand giving up is not the answer. Him and his staff has become part of my family, after 5 years fighting this we have went through many things together and never one time did him or his staff ever act like they didn't have time to talk us through my health issues or my family issues.
