Specialties

Dr. Ellen M Zimmermann has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Worst Doctor I have ever seen

I have had multiple appointments with Dr. Zimmerman and each one has been over 3 hours long due to her overbooking. The last appointment I made was so bad that when it hit the 3 hour mark I got up and left the office. upon my exit I requested that she please refill my prescription which would expire soon. She did not refill my prescription with my pharmacy and it has now been 8 days since I have had my medication. My pharmacy and I have called for the past 2 days trying to get her to send something to them so that I can get the medication that i need to not have a flare up. The staff has informed me that Dr. Zimmerman actually knows that I am out of my medication and has not signed the required paperwork to get my medication filled. I will not be back to see this Doctor and may be leaving this institution.

patient caregive

Patients are lucky to get 5 minutes every 6 months. Distant and rude if you do get in to see her. She is very typical of University of Michigan Health System doctors.

Two Stars

I agree with you. I went to see her for a second opinion. She ordered the tests, I had them done and she never contacted me to give her professional opinion about what should be done. She basically wrote me off (passed the buck). I was left terrified since my PCD had highly recommended her. Is patient care now all about$$? I will always regret her for that. My hope is that one day someone will leave her hanging with her health in the balance as she did me. Maybe she's just burned out from to many years of PRACTICING medicine.

Not good, at all

She used to be good but now she completely changed and like all other g.i.'s, she will push you into getting a colonoscopy when you don't need one so she can get the $8000+ for 5 minutes of work. And if you don't agree to get one, she will give you the worst service ever and treat you like you are worthless to her. If you're not a highly profitable patient to her, she could care less about helping you or paying attention to anything you are saying or help you get better
