Dr Zimmer is the most compassionate, kind hearted cardiologist I’ve ever met. He takes the time to get to know his patients and really reassures them. He let me cry in frustration and offered words of comfort after he told me having more children was especially risky. No woman wants to lose her fertility before 30 because of a heart condition. But he was so kind about his approach.

I found Dr. Zimmer and his PA Christine to be extremely knowledgeable with a caring bedside manner. I actually felt like a patient today and not a number. They both spent time with me reviewing my high blood pressure and they put a plan place. I highly recommend Dr. Zimmer. I uphold a level of care in my mind and they achieved it with flying colors!
