  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.

    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Wonderful experience

Dr. Zimmerman was great!! He was very understanding and spent a lot of time in checking my step father. He never rushed him or made him feel inadequate after suffering from a stroke. I want to thank him for his kindness and caring.

Disrespectful staff

Dr. Zimmerman is pleasant and respectful. However, Joann, in office is a very disrespectful person. She is not compassionate, and makes conversation difficult at times. When you are in pain, she is a pain. You want to run from this office, and hate coming back.

Five Stars

Dr. Zimmerman was most caring and professional. Head to toe exam, listening to my symptoms...all done very thoroughly. Electrophysiologic studies and EMG were performed in the office with almost no discomfort. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Z to anyone searching for a thoughtful, compassionate and professional neurologist.
