Ratings for Dr. Matthew J. Zimmie
We had been going to see Zimmie for 5 years. Saw him today for a med that my son has been taking from a Psychiatrist for ADHD. The Psychiatrist stated we could get the script from our GP. Zimmie stated he did not prescribe these types of Meds. Huh? Isn't that what a GP should do prescribe meds? The whole time during the appt he wasn't looking at us just typing on his computer. This appt. took an hour to find this out! I was not pleased with him before, this was the icing on the cake. I was just too lazy to find anbother Dr. Don't see him unless you have a simple prob like a cold or the flu otherwise you're wasting your time and $, he will just refer you to someone else. The office staff is rude as well. I am looking for another Dr. for both my kids now. This may be a case of last in class but still called Dr. Avoid! This office needs to realize this is a business and patients need to be treated as such. The only positive was he didn't charge us for the visit and gave me back my co-pay.
Dr.Zimmie is a nice man, and does seem concerned. The only issues I have are as follows:On quite a few occassions he refers us to someone else. I am talking over 6 times this has happened. We are a generally healthy family, and have no chronic illnesses. This bothers me at times. Also, when we need a refill for a medication he requests that we come in for an appointment-even if we had just been there 3 months ago. I can understand if it is a new med, but it is the same one that has been taken for over 5 years. Not a blood test, but we have to make an appointment-spend the copay-take off of work-it just seems like a big pain in the you know where. We are thinking of changing doctors because of these issues. He is a nice person, but there has been a lot of extra time consumed for office visits and referrals. And when we did go in for an appt. for a refill-it was nothing. He asked how we were-fine-feel ok?-yes-alright I'll call in script. Just a big waste of time.
Dr. Zimmie is very kind and knowledgeable. He takes his time and truly listens to you. He is willing to do what he can to make you feel comfortable with the options for treatment. He explains things in a manner that is easy to understand. I feel very comfortable talking to Dr. Zimmie and appreciate his throughness.
I had to see Dr. Zimmie because my primary wasn't available. I was so impressed with the way that he listened to me. He was very through. He answered my questions, made sure I understood everything that was prescribed and did not rush off to get another patient.
