very patient and child centered. great bedside manner with young toddler who is fearful of doctors. was able to get compliance from my toddler by demonstrating each procedure first on me and letting my daughter touch each tool before it was used on her

Dr. Mary Zimmer is wonderful. she always takes time to answer our questions and concerns, I don't feel like we are rushed when we are in there, she's great with our soon and even though he's a newborn she still talks to him. I trust her with his care 100%

super like zimmer and the office. I have a preemie who's now 4 and I'm always very concerned about respiratory issues. we have seen her every visit and even if she doesn't remember his history, it gives me a sense of comfort. she spent extra time with him today even though he was the last appointment and made sure that he was safe to go home and was able to provide a new nebulizer on the spot. I can't tell you enough how important that was.
