    I live in NYC and will never find a more caring man than Dr. Zimmer! He was my Dr. For most of the 90s and they don't come better than he. The best way to say this as well is there is a very short supply today of Docs as caring as Kirk Zimmer. Ric Scott SAGAFTRA NYC Branch

    I've been a patient of Dr. Zimmer's for about 30 years. I find him to be a dedicated, thorough doctor. He always allows time for questions and explanations. He covers all the bases to make sure he can diagnose correctly including tests if necessary or referrals to specialists. I am in confident, professional hands with Dr. Zimmer as my GP.
