Patient Comments (4)
Milford, MA |
Had an ER visit unfortunately Dr. Zimmerman was the doctor on call. Was rude and disrespectful. He was not happy that he was called to come to ER. Three year old child with a bleed from a tonsillectomy. Had no choice bleeding was severe or I would have gone somewhere else. Since I did not know this doctor I asked him what his experience was with tonsillectomies and bleeds. He seemed annoyed that I was questioning him. This ER visit was at Milford Medical Center they get one star too.
Brusque and insensitive. Two stars because my daughter's tonsillectomy was without complication, but he lost several points for his atrocious bedside manner. The appointments seemed rushed and emotionally sterile. Not friendly with children. My daughter had had tonsillitis for 2 months that survived multiple rounds of antibiotics. His decision to remove her tonsils seemed too quick, take-it-or-leave-it, and without much consideration or tolerance for my surprise, questions, and reservations.

Very poor bedside manner. He spent about 2 minutes with me, did not listen to my concerns, and then scolded me for not telling him specific symptoms which I did tell him while he wasn't listening. There is a push now toward patient-centered care, and this was far from it. Nothing about this appointment was collaborative. In fact, he had me undergo some tests without telling me the purpose, nor did he go over the results in detail with me. Definitely will not return.

Dr. Zimmerman is professional and relates to patients well. The office in both Milford and Framingham is old not that infrastructure matters. The office staff in both offices are either over worked or they hate their jobs. a patient is just a number. Scheduling is a nightmare also.
