Had an excellent visit with Dr. Zimm. He and his team were punctual and professional. I did not feel rushed at all, and any questions I had were answered. Highly recommend.
Exactly the type of appointment i was hoping for. Great doctor and Staff was very helpful.

Coming to Zimm for over 8 years now - only because he is in our Davis healthcare group - bunch of idiots working for him - the guy JOSH who orders prescription glasses for us never gets it right! He never calls us when the glasses are in, and again, 4X - the prescription he orders is wrong! Now the Davis office told me my husbands glasses have been in since 6/30 - now it is 7/26 - they had the wrong phone number for us and JOSH no longer works for them! Unbelievable!
One of the best doctors I've seen in recent years. Professional, courteous, listened to my concerns and helped me alleviate the issues. Fantastic!!!

I just had cataract surgery with Dr. Zimm in April and I am so happy with my results. I had my eyes corrected for the distance with the laser assisted measurement, and now I can see clearly and vividly. The staff was great, everyone from the front desk personnel to the technicians to the surgery coordinator. They are very thorough and I would recommend anyone looking for knowledgeable eye care to make an appointment.

123 Piece of cake cataract surgery. Didn't go so well. Two month later and about $4500 in the hole my vision is worse then when I walked in.

Great staff and excellent service. Very accomodating

Very thorough doctor. Caught the possibility of Glaucoma early and has prevented potential vision loss. I see him regularly to monitor my eye pressures.

It is rare to find a doctor who double-checks results of an eye exam to make sure the correct lenses were chosen and the patient's eyesight is exactly what the exam showed it to be. He is truly interested in the person's well-being and answers any questions very precisely, and in a way that you're able to understand. In my personal experience, the issue that I may have had for a few years was found by Dr. Zimm and is now corrected and I must say I haven't been able to see this well in a while.

Worst office staff in Naples. From North Naples to Davis Blvd, every office I have been to is terrible.
in Naples, FL |
Cataract surgery results not as promised; more procedures suggested; still not good results and more money spent. Wait time terrible. When I spoke to him about the wait time, he said that is just the way I operate. Office is too much of a production line. He comes in and says the same exact thing each time you are there (I've been there more than 15 times in relation to this procedure). Did not send records as promised when he sent me for a second opinion.
Great Dr personable friendly speaks a medical language I understand!!!
