Since my mom had recently become a patient of Dr. Zimmet's for vericose veins, English is ours second language I have need to write this review. I accompanied her to her appoitment to translate for her, Dr. Zimmet was so wonderful communicating to her and me about everything he was doing and finding about her veins, he has taken his time with us, he was so patient with all of our questions and took so much time throughly explaining everything to us. My mom and I have had very opposite expericences with other doctors here in Austin. My mom needed a surgery called Endocenous Laser Ablation, my mom was scared to death about the whole deal, she is scared of a little needle, my whole family was nervous about how this surgery would go, and I have to say that Dr. Zimmet and his staff were the best in allevating her fears and making her feel totally relaxed and comfortable before, during and after her surgery. We have hears all kinds of things out there, and the doctors that we went before told us about stripping her weins and doing it under the general, in the hospital, few days of recovery, and things like that, we are so happy we went to Dr. Zimmet for the second opinion, so happy that my mother had EVLT, so happy that we found Dr. Zimmet. She was up and walking on a treadmill right after the surgery, she was up and walking that afternoon, she was back at work the next day. We highly recommend this doctor and his staff! Best doctor in Town!!!
