Absolutely the best, I don't even know where to start. Dr Zimmerman has made a huge difference in the quality of life my daughter now has, after being diagnosed with Graves Disease. There is no one out there with the level of experience, knowledge and professionalism other than Dr Zimmerman, I appreciate him at all levels, he is a phenomenal human being as well.

My 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with Graves Disease a couple of years ago. We saw a previous doctor before meeting with Dr. Zimmerman. We are so grateful to now be in his care. Dr. Zimmerman has many years of experience and the knowledge to help us make informed decisions on the treatment options regarding her diagnosis. He is very friendly and does an amazing Donald Duck impersonation! Wonderful doctor!
