My stepfather saw Dr. Zimbelman for diabetic foot care (trimming toe nails). Without discussing it with the patient or family, Dr. Zimbelman removed a diabetic ulcer out of the bottom of his foot. After 3-4 months of being told "come back in 3 weeks", it was clear that the wound was not going to heal. His Pulmonologist noticed the limping and asked to see the wound. The PULMONOLOGIST referred us to the Wound Care Center. Dr. Z NEVER even suggested that he see anyone else. During the FIRST visit to the Wound Care Center, we were told that infection had set in and likely reached the bone already. They said that if we couldn't get it under control, there was a strong possiblity amputation would be required. After another 3-4 months of trying to stop the infection, a portion of the foot had to be amputated. We feel this was due to poor care which allowed the infection to begin in the first place. We DO NOT recommend Dr. Zimbelman.

I would recommend Dr. Zimbelman in a heartbeat! So glad I chose him, over any other podiatrist.
