“Dr. Zimmerman was very patient with me. I didn't heal as quickly as I felt I should, and when I went to see him for my second follow up, I was frustrated and discouraged. He let me vent and said to trust him, it would get better, and it did. On my next follow-up, I was feeling much better, and I am glad I listened when he told me that I would. I am grateful that he listened to me about my concerns, and he didn't disregard them as anything. He was awesome!”
