What People Say About Dr. Barklie Zimmerman, MD

Dr. Zimmerman was called in to stop an artery from bleeding. I watched on the echo screen as he injected a clotting substance into a curled up tiny, damaged artery. Saved my life in a matter of seconds. He later paid me a totally unnecessary visit in IVCU, just to see if I was ok. I'd say that's a good doctor and fine human being. He has great people skills.

Dr. Zimmerman is a caring, empathetic physician who considers the patient's well being tantamount to his surgical practice. He is a skillful surgeon with an impeccable bedside manner. I had a surgical procedure with Dr. Zimmerman and my experience was an excellent outcome. Dr. Zimmerman followed up my encounter with comforting words to allay any apprehension on my part. I recommend him highly to anyone seeking surgical care.

He left me with infections that left me mangled and deformed, three surgreies to correct his mess. PLease, for your own good, look for another surgeon. I wish someone had told me before I trusted him.
