    Dr Richard Scott Zimmerman is literally a miracle brain surgeon. He took on my cause, which was so complicate-and took it on with such ease and faith. He not only was so logical, full of endless info-but he also had such humor!!! And I loved that!! I was fearless of all 3 brain resections. And the last one done awake-I was excited and giddy. Having a neurosurgeon like him makes it simple to have zero fear. He worked wonders on my 3rd awake brain surgery. I am forever grateful!
