Very good experience. I was apprehensive as it was my first visit but the office staff put me at ease very soon after I walked as the front office staff was welcoming, friendly and professional. The nurse was amicable and efficient. All if this made me more comfortable with Dr. Zimmerman, who was professional and easy to speak with.

Staff were excellent and extra nice. It didn't take long to see him (maybe 15 minutes) for the afternoon in Howard beach office. He has a lot of availability. He was very quick with my visit, asked questions, poked around my belly and gave me a prescription that so far works and a follow up for a sonogram just to be safe. Overall I wish I didn't feel like it went by so quickly (I probably saw him for about 10 minutes max) since I wanted to ask more questions. But he did his job and was efficient enough for me to go back.

Dr. Zimmerman was very courteous, professional and knowledgeable. It was a consultation and he took the time to discuss all of the symptoms and the next steps for diagnosis and treatment. I would highly recommend him and his staff. The 2 ladies that assisted the doctor were pleasant, patient and explained in detail the next course of action and set up all of the further testing. They were all very reassuring and helpful.
