Professional Statement

I am a psychiatrist with expertise in both medication management and psychotherapy. I teach and supervise residents in these fields at Weill Cornell Medical College, where I am a member of the faculty. My private practice is located in Union Square, Manhattan. With specialities in psychopharmacology and psychodynamic psychotherapy, I present each patient with multiple treatment options, allowing for an integrated approach that makes use of either strategy — or both. I encourage patients to guide the direction we take. My collaborative stance has earned me the respect of patients and colleagues alike. I was selected as Chief Resident at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital–Weill Cornell Medical Center (2011-2012). And while on the faculty of Columbia University Medical Center, I was honored with the Physician of the Year Award (2013)

Dr. Zimmerman's relaxed, friendly attitude eased my anxiety about going to a psychiatrist for the first time. Certainly returning!

Dr. Zimmerman is sharp and perceptive. Available for patients and very open to patients' ideas. I think he knew me better than I knew myself after an hour only—but he's not the type who needs to tell you that. He is quick yet thorough. He presented at least three treatment plans—no pressure—but when pressed he told me what he thought would be best. Dr. Zimmerman proves the point about why not to separate psychiatrist/drugs and therapist/talk. And—the most important thing for me in a shrink—he is 100% on my side.

Dr. Zimmerman requires that he speak to your previous therapist/ AND psychiatrist before he will prescribe medication . Overall , being treated by dr . Zimmerman is a stressful, long, and difficult process, one which requires a lot of work, time, and revisiting of the past. (Get ready to talk about that time you had anxiety when you were 12 years old). And make sure to bring your detailed medical history so that you can answer his many tedious and irrelevant questions that are unnecessary, random, and without purpose.
