Dr. Zimmermann is wonderful. She takes the time to listen to her patient and address all of the patient's issues and/or questions. She is very thorough, knowledgeable and really cares about her patients. Dr. Zimmerman is definitely NOT thekind of doctor who gives you 5 or 10 minutes of their time and rushes out to see the next patient. She cares, she listens, she asks questions and she explains. I would definitely recommend Dr. Zimmerman!

Dr. Zimmerman is, by far, the best GP I have ever had. She is very personal, yet highly professional. She is up to date with all the latest medical procedures/medicines. Walter, her nurse, is thorough and compassionate. Her front of house staff is always pleasant and accommodating.

I have been a patient with Dr Zimmermann for over 20 years. I have always loved coming to her because she is an awesome Doctor and will always take the time to listen and talk to you about what's going on.The only coming I have is with the wait time, but for me it's worth it for a doctor this good.

First, was at the front desk that day was not welcoming at all. The doctor was so sweet and quick, but I wish I was warned before extra tests were ordered for my blood work or that it was checked withinsurance that the tests ordered were all preventative to save so much headache! More tests on my blood work was ordered than my insurance could cover for a preventative visit. A lot of back and forth with my insurance and billing to get this settled and collection letters from LabCorp kept coming in for not paying the entire balance. I found out that there were tests ordered coded for a medical reason and not preventative so I would have to pay out of pocket. Very sneaky, never again will I go to a doctor that does not offer blood work in house!

I only had the initial visit, so I only can speak of one visit. The woman at the entrance desk was very efficient and very friendly and welcoming. And the waiting room and office were clean. Walter was very professional, knowledgeable,and I was surprised to see a "nurse" assisting the doctor, and not an aide medical assistant. He was very good at explaining things, patience in putting in all my data into the computer, and offered a pnuemonia shot, which I never had, and was never offered. He gave me reading material also to read up on it. I accepted the Prevnar shot and he delivered it nicely. Very welcoming. Dr. S. Zimmerman is very knowledgeable on diabetes and easy to talk with and answered questions about various issues on diabete, GI issues, and medications. She is young and seems very energetic and upfront and gives clarity with her explanations. She took the time needed to see a new patient. I am looking for a primary doctor, and I am hoping she will be the one. I will be seeing her again after I have my blood work done.

Dr. Zimmerman is a great Doctor but her office manager has a lot to be desired. Lost ekg, told me I wasn't a patient when my pharmacy tried to fill a script I have been on for over 10 years. Icalled three days in a row to no avail. I had two charts open (whatever that means). If Dr. Zimmerman doesn't address this issue of mismanagement she will lose more patients like myself. Sorry Doc incompetence when it comes to filling scripts, losing records and so can be extremely stressful as well as life threatening, Now the search is on for a new Doctor that takes my insurance, thanks.

Dr Zimmerman is very thorough and listens to your symptoms I like the way she diagnosis and treats. And she is caring . I wish we could clone her because she needs help in the office. Would be nice if shehad a nurse practitioner to help - it's hard to get quick appointments and the phone is very busy there they could use help at the desk on high volume days

Dr. Zimmerman is the best doctor. Her wait times are a little long, but that's because she spends time with her patients and really gets to know what is going on with them. I had been searching for a primary doctorfor 20 years - and Dr. Zimmerman is it.
