We’ve been seeing Dr Zimmerman the past 5-6 years. She has always been very professional, courteous and a listener. She cares about her patients and takes the time to be sure you understand diagnosis or realm of your appointment and does not rush your appointment. We highly recommend!

Dr Zimmerman has been caring for both of our kids(4 and 1 year old) since they were born. We had gone to her for every illness, fevers, eczema, rashes, cough, etc and she has always been available even by cell phone. She is the greatest pediatrician a parent can hope for! She listens and has the greatest sense of humor, but most importantly...she is great at making sure our kids are healthy so they can run around and cause us troubles. She is the best and we are sooo lucky and blessed to have her.

Wouldn't allow me to express concerns about certain medications or use of cancer cause ingredients. Refused to listen to a more holistic natural approach to health.

Didn't consent to specialized tests my child required. Instead I was reported to CPS. For questioning treatments and diagnosis. As it turned out I was right my child misdiagnosed. It I wasn't such a proactive parent my child would probably not be here today to enjoy.
