I am amazed at the skills of Dr.Zimmerman. He performed 2 craniotomies on my husband for 2 strokes within a 15-hour time period. It truly is miraculous that he survived and is recovering very well. Dr. Zimmerman took the time to explain everything to me in a compassionate and caring manner. He called me promptly after both procedures to inform me of the outcome. I cannot thank him enough-he is truly an incredible surgeon and a life-savior!

He treated me as though I was wasting his time. Like a cold fish. He has no personality and couldn't get me out the door fast enough! All I heard was your MRI wasn't that bad. I had questions and got "I don't know". But doctor, what's causing these outrageous pains I've been getting in my legs ? Idk. There's nothing I can do for you (as he holds the door open) I was so put off by him, I went looking for this site asap. He's demeaning and acts like he could care less. Very disappointed. NEVER!

Dr. Zimmerman and his PA Chris performed a spinal fusion on my #3-4 Lumbar spine on September 12, 2016 and two months later I am back at my gym working out. Their work is excellent and they wonderful to work with. I have recommended Dr. Zimmerman to two friends recently.
in Oxford, CT |
Dr. Zimmerman and his PA Chris Dall are an excellent team. Dr. Zimmerman is a very skilled surgeon and Chris is very knowledgeable. Both are very caring and attentive to their patient's needs and well being. They removed a large tumor from my wife's brain and had to install two shunts for a total of three surgeries. My wife had a complicated medical history and Dr. Zimmerman quickly found solutions to each complication that arose.

Dr. Zimmerman is a very thoughtful down to earth specialist. With a quiet confidence tempered with humbleness he explains your problem and what he can do to help fix it. Chris Dahl, his PA is a perfect compliment to this team who works in perfect synchronization. My biggest regret is not meeting them 5 yrs earlier.
