I became a patient of Dr. Zimmerman several years ago. Since then both my wife and mother-in-law have become patients. I appreciate his demeanor, his experience and dedication to me while he is treating me.

Dr. Thomas Zimmerman is a thorough professional. He will continue to pursue symptoms until a proper diagnosis can be reached for treatment. He does this with patience and kindness. The staff at the clinic is always very helpful and upbeat. Patients need a smile and encouraging words when they are in pain. I have recommended Dr. Zimmerman and this clinic a number of times.

Cold and unfriendly. I thought I was being judge mental so I went back for a few appointments and it was the same each time. I understand that he's been to Med School but as an individual I know my body and my pain and HE JUST DOESN'T LISTEN! He will control the conversation and cut you off, already telling you what he thinks before he hear the problem. It's a rush job and you might get 10 minutes of his time if you're lucky. Maybe he's psychic or Med school should also teach an etiquette class

Good doctor, only one complaint,orders unnecessary test and refer you to specialist for things he can treat. I have a history of Gout, instead of Dr Zimmerman waiting for blood work results to determine level of Uric Acid, which causes Gout, he referred me to an orthopedic doctor,who only prescribed me pain medicine (waste of my time and $) also Dr Zimmerman order a MRI whitch cost me a Co pay of $200.After all of this,blood work came back showing very high levels uric acid he put me on Gout med

Dr. Zimmerman is a great listener and a wonderful physician. Since being under his care my blood pressure has been down and I know longer need to take a pill everyday. I would recommend his service to anyone trying to get their healthy in the right order.

He is the best!! I have never had such a great Doctor and staff as Dr. Zimmerman!! I've been remarkably well since I have switched to him over a year ago after being with my other primary care physician for 15+ years! He is on top of your health and never fails to listen to you. I love him and his nurses and staff. The most friendliest atmosphere ever!! If there were ten stars he would definitely get them and then some!!!
