Dr. Zimmerman's Care Philosophy
Care is individualized to each patient. Whenever possible, I recommend nonsurgical options first. When surgery is an option, I discuss why it might help you, what is likely to happen without surgery and exactly what surgery and recovery would entail. I never pressure patients into surgery and I do my best to give you the information you need to make whatever decision is right for you.
