Ratings for Dr. John P. Zimmermann
I decided that when I turned 50 years old that I would have a face lift and allow myself to age gracefully after that. I chose Dr Zimmerman because of his reputation, knowledge and wonderful staff. I was very happy with the results then and I am still very happy with the results 8 years later. I also take great care of my skin as it is the only one I will every have so I use sun screen every day as well as a facial every 6 - 8 weeks.
Almost a year after my facelift I am not sure I should have done it. I did everything I was told to do to help recovery, but still had some complications that I'm still dealing with. I was told by a staff person that I had "bad luck". I was told that the barbed attachments that they used in my temple area to lift the eyes would dissolve. They did not completely dissolve, and are now causing headaches, especially if I sleep on my side, which I prefer to do. I ended up with granulation in one of the scars in front of my ear and now have a small hairless patch in the sideburns area. During my consultation I was told that the type of scalpels they use avoid any hair loss. I'm grateful that I wear my hair long enough to cover the scars well, because they are still bright red. I agree with the earlier comment that the doctor spent a long time telling my husband and me how skilled he is, but things ended up happening that I was told would absolutely not happen. I think the worst part is that I've been made to feel like it's my own fault somehow - just bad luck. Not acceptable.
I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Zimmerman that resulted in the entire left side of my nose collapsing. He refused to admit he made a mistake and to this day my nose is mishapen. The doctors I've seen since then tell me that a corrective surgery is to risky, he took too much cartilage, and to do anything now may result in more damage. I live with his mistake and and diceit every day.
I have been using Botox for many years with no problems. When my preferred doctor was not available I went to Dr. Zimmerman. He spent 20 minutes telling me why he was the best plastic surgeon in the biz. After the Botox injection, my eyelids are so hooded I can barely see. He's not as good as he thinks he is. I will never return.
I have had various procedures in this office through the years of being a patient. I've always been treated with the utmost courtesy and respect by all of the staff. Although most of my procedures have been in and out treatments, like botox, filler, lasering, and facials, I most recently had an elective surgery with Dr. Zimmermann. I was so pleased with the time he spent with me in the consult to help me make the best decision, which certainly helped my husband in the decision making process too, might I add!! The day of my surgery, I felt pampered and well attended to. The follow up was beyond my expectations, for sure! This staff is going to be there for you, from beginning to end, no matter what treatments or surgeries you choose!!
I was very nervous about having an elective procedure. Dr. Zimmermann and his staff put my mind at ease. Dr. Zimmermann spent a very long time explaining the ins and outs of what was going to take place during the surgery. I am exactly 3 months out from my procedure and so incredibly happy. Thank you! Dr. Z and your amazing staff.
he left one of my breast smaller than the other and did not get the size I had asked for. When I complained, he ended up charging me extra 300.00 to fix the problem, I heard one of the nurses telling him he needed to fix his mistake and I could hear him complaining. I still had to pay out of pocket for his mistake. It would of ended up costing me more if I would of went somewhere else.
I had a quite extensive surgery last yr. and I was treated very good from Dr.Zimmerman as well as the staff. Dr Zimmerman is a very skillful plastic surgeon and as well as a very kind person. He did listen to all of my concerns and was very throughal in explaining the type of surgery recommended for me. My experience was very good.
