Review for Dr. Baerman

Dr Zimmerman is the most professional, patient, kind and caring physician that I’ve ever had, I highly recommend her. She is the best! I would give her 10 stars if that were an option.

Review for Dr. Zimmerman

I visited with Dr. Musante for a second opinion regarding neck and shoulder pain and he was fantastic. His dual background in both Ortho and Neuro were particularly helpful for my issues. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Arcedo has been my doctor for several years, and he is wonderful. He’s very knowledgeable, and he uses that knowledge to get to the root of your problem. I trust him and feel very comfortable talking to him .
