I've been a patient of Dr. Zimmerman for over 6 years, entirely from her previous practice, before coming here to Stahl Eyecare Experts. Our communication with each other is outstanding and I have complete conference in her ability to diagnose & treat my conditions expertly!

Very disappointed in Dr. Zimmerman. She was late, unprepared and had no idea how to support my eye concerns. She promised to check with another eye doctor and call me back in 2 days. It's been 2 weeks and she has never called. I've called Stahl back twice and still no resolution.
