Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

Dr. Zimmerman is a professional in the highest form in her field, yet she is also a human being in that she cares in her patients' needs. She is highly sensitive to the needs of her patients and is there 100% when she performs surgery. She is one of the best doctors at Stahl Eye Care and they have a pearl. I hope they cherish and respect what they have and understand that they have one of the most highly talented and competent doctors in the country! The best!

Dr. Zimmerman is a brilliant physician! She diagnosed me right away when my previous eye care providers could not!

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.

I have followed her from her old practice and she is the best eye doc in NYC
