Great Neurosurgeon!

I had very extensive neck surgery in November 2016. Was told recovery could be up to a year to feel better however it is now September 2017 and I have been getting stronger each month. Dr. Zimmerman is an excellent surgeon. I highly recommend him for any neck or back surgery. As with most surgeons he may seem abrupt but he just gets to the facts, tries very hard to make you completely understand what he intends to do for you. His PA is also very helpful and will take the time to explain everything to you. Once the Dr. comes in he will show you your scans, MRI and explain why you need the surgery and exactly what procedures he plans to perform. We are all very nervous and don't always hear everything he says, bring a support person with you as it really is helpful. I actually had two consultations with him which really calmed my nerves and made me very comfortable with Dr. Zimmerman. I can't say enough good things about he and his nurses.
