The EmergeOrtho clinic was very busy but seemed efficient. The staff were nice but so busy as to seem harried. Dr. Zimmerman, once I was called in to see her, was AMAZING. She was kind, efficient and highly skilled. When I need another steroid injection, I’m going beck to her.

I like to people watch. I watch to see how orhers are treated as well as how service providers perform when they think no one is watching. The staff at EmergeOrtho rate extremely high in every area of expectation. Dr. Zimmerman gets high praise for noticing and questioning things in my record that were contradicted by my questionnaire. She wants to get to the truth to be as helpful as possible.
