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.

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.
