This doctor made me waste my valuable time (and money) encouraging me to have more than 2 treatments to have a baby (IVF) when later another doctor told me that I only had a 3% chance of getting pregnant. In addition, the visit is short and in a hurry.

I went through the infertility process with Dr. Zimmerman for about 1 year. Now, I’m pregnant after second try of IVF! He always explained everything in details and informed me with my choices very well. Therefore, I was able to participate in choosing my medical direction together with Dr. Also, he is very careful in every step he takes, so I didn’t have much concern! Highly recommend!

I have been seeing Dr. Zimmermann for 2 years for endometriosis. I had a negative reaction to some of my medications 2 years ago and had to go off of all of my hormone therapy for several weeks. Dr. Zimmermann was very thorough and took blood tests to see what my base-level hormones were, using this information to go forward with treatment. He understands my need to use the lowest dose possible while still stopping the progression of my disease. He's receptive to my concerns and returns calls.
