Dr. Zimmerman is a kind, empathetic, reassuring and knowledgeable doctor. Whenever I might have a concern, he listens, and thoughtfully addresses it with his expertise and compassion. I always leave his office feeling better, because of his positivity and life-affirming demeanor. He's got a great sense of humor, too. The office staff is great and there's never a long wait to be seen. I highly recommend you choose him as your cardiologist.

Dr. Zimmerman has been my husband's and my cardiologist for many years. We originally consulted with him because of our primary doctor's recommendation and his outstanding reputation, He is thorough, straightforward, respectful, compassionate, upbeat, encouraging, reassuring and entirely focused on his patients. His answers, advice and instructions are clear. He is easily reachable through his excellent and caring staff, including his nurse, Patti, and front desk assistant, Elaine.
