No one likes pain or facing a surgery but I was so at ease with Dr. Zimmer and his staff that I actually had fun while getting fixed up. Very professional yet friendly with great results from the surgery! Speedy recovery too.

Dr Zimmer and his staff are remarkable. I have no wait time before being seen. Everyone is extremely kind. Since my Basal joint replacement, my left hand is pain free. I highly recommend Dr Zimmer. I would never go to anyone else. I wish he did knees and feet. I would be set.
