"Dr. Zimmerman and his staff were wonderful to me. He did an excellent job and was very thorough and knowledgeable. The patient coordinator was really great. She took her time explaining the procedure and different options I had at my consultation. She showed me pictures so I could get an idea of how things would turn out. The day of my procedure the ladies and Dr. Zimmerman were so nice and that put me at ease. I was back to work on Monday and I think it was due how great of a job Dr. Z did. I have fabulous results already and am only 2 weeks out!"



"Love Dr. Z. Kind, knowledgeable, and definitely keeps your own aesthetic in mind vs. a one size fits all approach. The clinic is state-of-the-art with equipment and technology that other providers don't have, even in a city like Las Vegas. Highly recommended."



"Wowowowow. I have never experienced such great customer care until now. Its my first time every getting laser hair removal and I had tons of questions. Luckily the reception, Kanani, was so helpful. She answered all my questions promptly. She obviously was very knowledgable about the product. As for the procedure, the staff was very nice. Its a clean and sterile facility. I will be returning to this location again soon! Highly recommend this place for their helpful staff and clean facility."



"I was very impressed with Dr. Zimmerman and his staff! My injections never bruised and the pain was minimal. Most importantly my face has never looked better! He asked for a picture where I felt my face looked how I would like to have it again and he nailed it! He did not overdue or under-due. Absolutely amazing. After sharing with a few friends about how much I liked his work it turns out I'm not the only one! Will. Be. Back!"



"Dr Zimmerman is by far above most all cosmetic Doctors here in Las Vegas. He has all the staff and equipment to preform, as well as knowledge. He takes his time with all patience to explain the procedure. He isn't a salesman either. I usually have to ask about the different things he offers. He is fixing work done by a previous procedure and is doing a fantastic job. Highly recommend people due homework on these very complicated body and face alterations. Stop price shopping and go with knowledge and experience. Loved him as a doctor and a human."
