been a patient of Dr Zimmer's for many years. I am always treated very respectfully and never feel rushed. some friends have doctors who seem to treat them differently as they get older- sort of feel written off- Dr Zimmer has treated me the same since day one.

Dr. Zimmer is always attentive to my healthcare needs and concerns. She recommends lifestyle changes and healthy options to help me live better. She's a problem-solver who sees the big picture and orders testing or referrals to specialists if needed and then follows up with the patient to keep everyone informed.
