Patient Comments (3)
in Richmond, VA |
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.
in Richmond, VA |
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.
in Farnham, VA |
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.
