I would highly recommend Dr. Neil Zimmerman and his staff to everyone .He answers all your questions and is very friendly He and his staff makes you feel as though you are the only person in the office and the only one that matters. Dr. Neil Zimmerman is a very kind and gentle person and when it came time to do surgery I felt so relaxed and I couldn't ask for a better doctor. On a scale of 1 - 100 I would give a 200

Dr Zimmerman has treated me twice in 25 yrs, most recently for a fractured wrist, complicated by the fact that I was in New Mexico when I contacted his assistant Amanda about my need for guidance and help. Not only did he personally call me back to give me guidance, he and Amanda followed up by arranging needed surgery a few days later at UMH. I have had an unbelievably positive experience with Dr Z, both at his office and at UMH. Very competent and compassionate. Best Doc in Baltimore too!
