I am so glad I booked the appointment with Dr. Zimmerman!! She's great! You can tell she is a kind personby her smile. She was very professional and made me feel at ease. The entire staff I interacted with (technician and receptionists) were super nice as well. I am so happy I found my new opthalmologist. I will definitively be back next year. I highly recommend Dr. Zimmerman! Thank you Dr!

Dr. Zimmerman was kind, caring, thoughtful and thorough. Despite the fact that she was concurrently caring for several patients in other exam rooms, I never felt rushed. Dr. Zimmerman remained calm, focused and attentive to my needs, and explained things clearly. Craig, Dr. Zimmerman's nurse/technician, was competent, capable and a pleasure to deal with. The front office staff members were polite and efficient. All in all, a terrific experience.

Front desk was very sweet, couldn't find my ZocDoc paperwork at first, but found it and was able to stop me from having to refill it out! Relatively short wait time, lovely assistant who was very knowledgeable, and Dr. Zimmerman was sweet and very good at explaining what she was doing, and why. Also, it was my first time having my eyes dilated, and everyone was so sweet afterwards about it. It was just a nice appointment, I'll for sure be back next year.

The people behind the desk were nice and friendly. The technician who tested me before the doctor came in was efficient (and impersonal). The doctor herself is excellent--lovely personality, very knowledgeable and efficient, answered questions well.

I was seen a half hour after my scheduled appointment time. I understand there are other patients being seen as well, but the office needs to respect that I'm ducking out of work during my lunch break. You need to schedule your patients in a way that you can honor the time slot you committed to them. We're all on a busy, demanding schedule.

Dr. Zimmerman is cordial & professional. Even though there was a bit of a wait, things moved along efficiently. The only issue from my perspective was with the front desk staff - they seemed a bit too nonchalant & somewhat distant.
