Patient Comments (3)
The very best orthopedic doctor in Connecticut. Extremely knowledgeable, efficient, capable and skilled. I wouldn't want my family and friends to go to anyone else.
Clearfield, UT |
Dr. Zimmermann is by far the best physician I have ever had to see. He is extremely knowledgeable and my experiences with his P.A. were exceptional. I live across the country now but if I ever had an orthopedic problem I would not let any other doctor operate on me.
