Specialties

Dr. Earl A Zimmerman has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • 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.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    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.

Supremely ethical and a true gentleman

Dr. Z is very experienced with dementia. He is very personable but also very frank. He doesn't try to candy coat his message but he delivers it in the kindest manner I could imagine. He is very respectful of his patients and his staff are also very good. He also grows his own tomatoes from his own stock of seeds.

Gave me faith again in ethical physicians

Dr Zimmerman treated me with compassion, showed respect and was never demeaning. He did not treat me like a idio kid and spent lot of time telling me the alternatives and what I could expect as the years went by -- it was not all good but he gave me the information with compassion. He referred me to other physicians that could help me in other fields which I needed by badly -- I feel sad that so many people have needs for a "dying breed" like Dr Zimmerman and will never find what they need. I hope many people will read this. He told me many things we had never heard, filled all our prescriptions and we will be going back.
