For over 25 years, Dr.. Zimmer has provided unparalleled care in internal medicine to thousands of patients. The Zimmer Concierge Medical Membership takes the patient experience to the next level, infusing the highest-quality care with first-rate amenities to make your visits comfortable, convenient, and hassle-free. We’re bringing back the idea of the family doctor, and creating physician-patient relationships that are authentic and personal. As a member, you’ll benefit from our premium services while receiving care uniquely tailored to your medical needs.
We understand that the little details matter when it comes to your health, and our “no stone-unturned” approach to diagnosis allows us to provide patients with the best treatment options available. Through the innovative use of technology, open communication, and hands-on medical expertise, our practice has served as a model for primary care providers across the region.
It makes a difference to us whether the wait time for your visit is 5 minutes or 45. We know how inconvenient it is to make an appointment just to ask your doctor a simple question. Most of all, it’s clear to us that caring for a patient takes time, and that 7-10 minutes per appointment with your physician just isn’t enough. This is where concierge medicine makes the difference.
The Zimmer Concierge Medical Membership is redefining quality care to reflect what matters to our patients: ready access to physicians and staff, convenient and easy scheduling, and a doctor who understands the nuances of your particular health situation. We are able to do this because our membership is limited to 200 patients, which ensures you’re receiving the individualized attention you deserve.

As primary care physicians, a significant part of our time is spent on preventive care. This means we focus on keeping you healthy, instead of waiting until you’re sick to provide treatment. The best preventive care occurs when a doctor understands all the factors of a patient’s health situation.
By joining the Zimmer Concierge Medical Membership program, you gain access to extended appointments for routine physical exams. These longer sessions allow you and your doctor more time to review your medical history, family background, and current concerns. We’re also able to learn more about your overall well-being, including emotional factors, which can play an important role in keeping you healthy.
We pride ourselves on the continuity of care we offer patients, and include recommendations for preventive testing, labs, and disease screening when needed as part of all our physical exams. To streamline your visits, we provide the following services on-site at our office:
*Actual laboratory testing takes place off-site. Patient insurance may require use of a different laboratory facility.
For medical concerns that extend beyond the realm of Internal Medicine, we have two specialists on staff available for consultation. This allows us to seamlessly integrate your care and reduces your need for additional appointments, consults, and office visits.
We are a passionate about providing excellent, personalized, comprehensive medical care.
