Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Competent, caring, reliable doctor

Dr Zimmer has been looking after me for a couple of decades. Generally I see him only about once per year (annual physical). I had a broken-bone emergency a few years ago. He was immediately available to help He visited me in the hospital and very efficiently dealt with some complications.

Experienced capable doctor

I have been seeing Dr. Zimmer for a good number of years now. He listens to my concerns and will have a discussion with me unlike some physicians I have seen in the past that wouldn't listen to my thoughts on the subject. Fortunately I have not had major issues but battle with hypertension and high cholesterol which he has been very helpful with. I appreciate discussing the pros and cons and do a little homework before I go so I can have an intelligent discussion. I would highly recommend him if you can get him as your doctor. The staff at the front desk is a little cold and the office is old and could use a facelift. Other than that an A+ experience.
