December 21, 2019 10:08 AM

Dr. Zimmerman is always very through with his explanations and answers all questions. He never rushes us and makes sure we are comfortable with his explanation -

November 23, 2019 12:16 PM

Explained health issues and concerns in a way I could understand. Addressed most issues and concerns that I had. The glass screen on the Medtronic defibrillator machine they used to check my defibrillator was cracked. I hope the machine was working okay.

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Good talked about getting a primary & setting goals.

October 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Very thorough & caring. Took time to help us understand condition, causes, etc.

September 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman is an amazing Doctor. He takes his time and explains what's going on with my heart and my heart rhythms. He explains it, so I can understand. He also always asks how I'm doing, and I appreciate that.

August 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Wonderful -> was a consultation for an ablation. Dr. Zimmerman talked us through the procedure in detail and had times for many questions.

July 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman was very caring and concerned for my daughters recovery one year after surgery. He is very friendly and talks to her like she's a friend. We love Dr. Zimmerman.

July 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman is a excellent doctor and is good with kids & adults. Makes you feel very comfortable.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman simply gave us EXCELLENT care. We have seen him in the past and he has performed an ablation for X. He is VERY good to us and we are grateful for his amazing care of X.

July 7, 2019 7:00 PM

it's was good.

June 19, 2019 7:00 PM

We were pleased to get in to see Dr. Zimmerman quickly - although that required us to contact our pediatrician to get her to call us in - as the 1st appointment we were offered from his receptionist when we called from the EMERGENCY ROOM was over a month away!

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Wonderful experience.

May 15, 2019 7:00 PM

The best and his truly understanding and comforting.

April 29, 2019 7:00 PM

X always enjoys going to see Dr. Zimmermann. Everyone in his office has always treated him with the utmost respect and concern.

April 24, 2019 7:00 PM

As usual Dr. Zimmerman gives time for patients to think about their problems, listens carefully, and explains carefully until completely understood.

March 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman is a wonderful doctor!

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

Everyone was wonderful. We came after an abn. EKG for YH4L. X (sorry on sp.) was very pleasant. Dr. Zimmerman was so helpful and took his time and not only made sure my questions were answered. But also my daughter's. I was nervous my daughter is 17 yrs. old. And not used to male health care workers. - So when a male echo tech came in the room - I was concerned how she would be. - He was very respectful and allowed her to keep her modesty with a towel to cover herself - she did well. I am a cardiology RN and know that many times modesty is an after thought with echoes. I appreciate Dr. Zimmerman and all the staff who so quickly took care of X. Thank you.

September 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman is so patient and will make sure I & her family understood everything before we leave. I also have lung issues, so he has been instrumental in making sure my pacemaker is working w/my lungs. Dr. Zimmerman is also is extra careful about my health condition. Thank her Dr. Zimmerman!

September 13, 2018 7:00 PM

I trust Dr. Zimmerman with my heart as he did heart surgery on me several years ago. I am extremely thankful that even though I am now an adult & he mainly sees younger patients that he was willing to meet with me for a check-up. Dr. Zimmerman has been kind caring & friendly & I would recommend him to family & friends. Thank you Dr. Zimmerman!

September 11, 2018 7:00 PM

It was a good follow-up on an existing family condition for my child.

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman communicated better than all other doctors I have seen in the past 20 years.

July 30, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman has the best bedside manner! He is informative, polite and respectful. He is the example other doctors should aspire to.

July 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman is an extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, empathetic doctor. We are very fortunate to have found him for the cardiac care for our son, X. I hope that you can personally extend to this doctor the recognition he clearly deserves and warrants. Your medical group is extremely fortunate to have Dr. Zimmerman on board!

May 28, 2018 7:00 PM

X was in for a cardiology/pacemaker checkup. He always enjoys seeing Dr. Zimmermann and X. He is always treated with respect (he is 35 with Down Syndrome) and they talk to him and ask him many questions. I am just there for backup.

May 7, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman was AWESOME so glad Dr. X gave us the referral. I would definitely recommend Christ Children's Hospital to family and friends. I have 10 children 2 of them have been seen at Luries (Children's Memorial) and I rate Dr. Zimmerman's care up there with Luries Children's hospital. Thank you! GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

April 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Frank Zimmerman is the best doctor ever!!!!!!

April 23, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman is the doctor that I consider the best and most educated on my care team. He never fails to listen to my concerns and always answers my questions to the best of his knowledge. He has provided me the most care out of any of my other physicians, and has even aided me in a referral to another doctor that he thought would be beneficial to my care. I always leave his office feeling satisfied that my concerns are being addressed. It is evident that Dr. Zimmerman truly cares about the well being of all of his patients. Thank you so much Dr. Zimmerman!

March 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Zimmerman is very helpful and supportive in my health. He is very smart and we make decisions together regarding my health, which I appreciate. I'm so glad he is my doctor.

February 2, 2018 6:00 PM

It was a great visit. They are always helpful!

January 31, 2018 6:00 PM

Very good!

January 21, 2018 6:00 PM
