“I became a patient of Dr. Zimmerman’s last July while having an issue with my shoulder. After trying different therapies (rest, cortisone injections, and PT), Dr. Zimmerman performed Arthroscopic surgery on my left shoulder a few weeks ago. We believe the operation was successful and I continue to heal nicely. I have had very little pain since surgery - just some soreness. I have had a very positive experience with everyone at The Bone & Joint Center. On all my visits from check in to check out everyone was friendly and helpful! Dr. Zimmerman’s secretary and his nurse were both extremely professional and friendly. While it is a hectic practice, the wait times were not bad at all on any of my visits. Dr. Zimmerman was professional, knowledgeable and personable. He answered all of my questions about my diagnosis and surgery, and I asked quite a few, but he didn’t seem to mind at all. When I asked to see my MRI, he showed it to my husband and myself and explained what we were looking at. Everyone in x-ray was also friendly! The day of my surgery went very smoothly, and everyone from reception to the nurses who took care of me before and post surgery was terrific! My experience here has been very positive, and I highly recommend this practice! Thank you!”
