Dr Zimmer's kind and extremely knowledgeable care of my family for decades has saved lives (coronary care) , provided critical guidance (teenage crisis management), needed senior care for my mother, and neurological guidance for me ( M.S.) Being our family doctor has given our family peace of mind and confidence in the utmost quality of a personable medical professional. Mary Poe-Rubino
in Campbell, CA |
As an adult, I think he is the best physician I've ever had and had him for the past 15 years, I believe. He takes the time to answer questions, to ask questions, and to explain the reasons for recommending further testing. He had been recommended to me by a friend who had been his patient for years also. I trust him.

Dr. Zimmer is one of the most thorough ,caring Dr.s I have ever been to, He has been my GP for over 30 yrs. No complaints only praises.!They didn't make them like him anymore!

I live in NYC and will never find a more caring man than Dr. Zimmer! He was my Dr. For most of the 90s and they don't come better than he. The best way to say this as well is there is a very short supply today of Docs as caring as Kirk Zimmer. Ric Scott SAGAFTRA NYC Branch

I've been a patient of Dr. Zimmer's for about 30 years. I find him to be a dedicated, thorough doctor. He always allows time for questions and explanations. He covers all the bases to make sure he can diagnose correctly including tests if necessary or referrals to specialists. I am in confident, professional hands with Dr. Zimmer as my GP.
