Comments: I can not recommend Dr. Gilmer highly enough. He did emergency surgery on my knee at the Mammoth Lakes Hospital yesterday evening. When I met him I felt immediately confident that he knew what he was doing and that I was in good hands. He explained everything to me, showed me the images and what the problem was, and even came back after dinner to do the surgery once the insurance authorized it. I am typically not a good patient. I don't like hospitals, doctors, or procedures of any kind. Because of Covid, I couldn't have my husband there with me, so I was in the ER alone. Dr. Gilmer and the entire staff of the Mammoth Lakes Hospital went above and beyond to make me feel safe and comfortable, and, most importantly, 24 hours after the surgery I feel better than I did before I went in! I can put weight on my leg, and I look forward to getting back to the things I love like hiking and cross country skiing. I recommend Dr. Gilmer without reservation.
