Ratings for Dr. Terry J. Zimmerman
Dr. Zimmerman was recommended to me for a breast augmentation revision. I am so pleased with my whole experience! Dr. Zimmerman is professional, nice, easy to talk to and funny. His office staff was amazing and his practice is beautiful and clean. I highly recommend Dr. Zimmerman to anyone looking for a great cosmetic surgeon!
Total nightmare! After facial surgery I was left with a massive necrotizing faciitis and was admitted to the hospital via Emergency Room. This was after Terry Zimmerman looked at it and simply prescribed an antibiotic pill and sent me home. TWICE! Was in Critical condition for almost a week and Zimmerman refused to refund my money. Now I have a permanent scar across the left side of my face. Also during this same surgery, he attempted to repair a lip implant he messed up the first time. That is still not repaird (after he attempted to repair it TWICE). He did refund partially for the lip implant debacle, but still refuses to refund or fix the scars caused by the infection that spread across my face after HE PERFORMED SURGERY! B E W A R E. He may be good with breast augmention, but go elsewhere for anything else people. Trust me.
In 1998 I had a brow lift, and 14 years later it still looks great. Dr.Zimmerman and staff where absolutly professional. I also had stomach lipo in 1999. Dr. Z is very experienced, and I can't understand some of the negative remarks other than.....'you cant please all the people'. If I choose to have anymore procedures I will only go to Dr. Zimmerman.
Dr. Zimmerman quotes you a low ball price, then does not perform the complete operation. Gives a small refund and then re-books your procedure for another large amount of money. Basically, he scams you out of 2 procedures. Watch out for this guy...his skills may be in breasts, but no in faces.
I had breasts augmentation and got amazing results. Dr. Z reviews were confusing, but he was highly recommended by the word of mouth, and I'm glad I went to Dr. Z to get my breasts done. I look amazing, went two sizes up, tossed my padded bras and actually don't need to use a bra! He knows what he is doing, I'm very happy with the overall experience and results.
I paid Dr. Zimmerman $60.00 for an office visit and he said he cwuld bill my ins. I later got a bill for another $32.00 after I already paid $60.00. I looked closely at the bill & I saw that he charged me $60.00 and then sent a bill to my insurance for another $160.00. My ins paid him another $128.00 along with the $60.00 I already paid him. He is one of those doctors that takes advantage of the ins. companies and over charges them which is why our insurance rates are so high. I would not recommend Dr. Zimmerman to anyone. He will get to your pocketbook anyway he can. I asked for my $60.00 back since he got way over what the original bill was and he refused. He needs the money to pay for his fancy office building and car. I was very disappointed in his response. He would not give me my money back. He called me and started yelling about why it was okay for him to over charge the insurance companies. I had to hang up on him since he was getting so loud.
I had a neck lift procedure and the results left lumps and irregularity. Dr. Zimmerman decided to NOT do the procedure I signed my permit for and made that decision while I was under anesthesia. I am very dissatisfied with the result and I am concerned that Dr. Zimmerman's skills cannot repair the damage. I now have estimates from other surgeons that the repair will cost between $5500 and $10K. I requested a refund and was denied that request from Dr. Zimmerman.
I've had two procedures done by Dr. Z. The first was a breast augmentation, he is the king when it comes to this. I'll just leave it at that. The second, rhinoplasty. Its a week after surgery and I already see how beautiful and perfect my nose came out! No black eyes and barely any swelling. The first couple days were awkward looking but I trusted Dr. Z and just seven days after surgery I can see my new nose shape which is natural and still looks like me, just more defined and a bit smaller. Exactly what I was looking for! I will never go to another doctor!!
I had a breast augmentation about 1 year ago from Dr Z. I am very happy with my results and knew what to expect. I was very informed due to my own research before I met with the dr. The information provided by the staff was reinforced information. My advice...do your own research and what you results you want. Dr Z was very practical as to whether or not my desired results were practical. Good experience and awesome results!
At my consult, Dr Z answered all my questions and made me feel totally confident. My surgery was a great success and I am thrilled with the results. My whole experience with the Z Center has been enjoyable and I would recommend him to all my friends.
