“Doc was pleasant and a good listener. He quickly diagnosed my issue and followed it up with x-rays, which he also explained. Very pleased with The Bone & Joint Center! Three of my family, as well as myself, have been treated by Dr. Czyka in the past, with excellent outcomes! We recommend The Bone & Joint Center often to people looking for great docs! All support staff was pleasant and comfortable!”

“I have found Dr. Zimmerman to be a very thorough and conscientious doctor. I can say the same about his staff, particularly Kaleigh. Time was of the essence with my injuries, and a plan was made and implemented to get me into surgery very quickly. I have been utterly pleased with the results of the operation on my knees. I also very much appreciated receiving a letter from Dr. Zimmerman thanking me for being one of his patients.”

“Dr. Zimmerman is working with me on my shoulder. Eventually, he will replace it. For now, I’d like to wait until November to have surgery done and hope that works out. My experience with Dr. Zimmerman has been wholly positive. He listens, he explains, he treats me as a person. I trust him. He is personable, knowledgeable, and caring. Thank you, Dr. Zimmerman!”

“I went in because of a pain in my left Achilles. I had been suffering from this pretty severely for about seven weeks. Dr. Zimmerman looks at it and had an x-ray taken of it. After viewing the X-ray and going by the description of the pain that I was in he came up with the diagnosis of Achilles tendonitis, he gave me some stretches to go along with ice massaging and told me to take anti-inflammatories. I iced for about a week, and I've been stretching it for several weeks now taking the anti-inflammatories that he recommended. It is not 100%, but it is almost there. I wish I had gone to see him sooner, waiting seven weeks was foolish on my part but he did a great job and if I'm ever in pain again he is the man I'm going back to see.”

“This was my first appointment at the Bone and Joint Center and I don’t think I’ve ever had an appointment go so smoothly. The check in was quick and easy and I went right in for my appointment and there was really never any down time. Dr. Zimmerman described my symptoms, I went right in for x-rays, came right back and he had already read them and told me what was wrong and gave me some options. We formulated a plan and moved forward with it. I can’t say enough good stuff about them!”

“Dr. Zimmerman performed shoulder resurfacing surgery on my very painful shoulder due to arthritis. The results have been great. After the initial recovery period, my shoulder is no longer painful at all. I will probably have my other shoulder taken care of with this surgery in the future.”
