Dr. Zimmerman is courteous and thorough. I appreciate warm old-school acknowledgements like shaking my hand when entering the room. Dr. Zimmerman ordered an on the spot x-ray and pulled it up on the computer and showed me a side-by-side comparisonto a normal x-ray. I will also go for an MRI, but so appreciate the thoroughness and time provide to me.

I was pleased with his assessment of my issue. Ordered me a MRI & gave me something to ease my pain. Hopefully, once my rest tests come back he can treat me according & help me feel better.

Dr Zimmerman is excellent and performed my surgery. But the office staff is terrible. I scheduled my appointment on zocdoc last week and it was confirmed on email that following day. I received a text confirmation earlier today for today's appointment.When I arrived and was waiting in the waiting room, the office told me that I did not have any appointment scheduled despite me showing them this proof. They said I must call the office to speak to them after making the zocdoc online appointment. What sense does that make? It does no good for them to have this great app if they make you call them after you schedule it. I could have just called them instead of zocdoc. I was very disappointed with their staff and unwillingness to find an opening today with them knowing I was waiting. If you can get past the office mix up, Dr Zimmerman is great.

This was my first visit. Dr. Zimmerman took time to describe what was shown on the MRI disk.

It was my 1st visit to Dr. Zimmerman. He was excellent. He spent the time to understand where my pain was and various pain points; double checked the x-rays, and even performed a sonogram to ensure his injection would be themost effective. He even gave me a print out of the diagnosis so I clearly understood the problem. I have come away truly impressed with his demeanor, experience and friendliness. He really put me at ease and I highly recommend him.
