2nd Opinions

Sometimes an initial visit to your doctor can leave you with more questions than answers, and you may be curious to know if your doctor’s recommended treatment is the right one for you. At Gail Zimmerman, MD, we are happy to provide free MRI reviews and second opinion appointments to patients seeking more confidence in their diagnosis and treatment options.

When seeking a second opinion, you shouldn’t worry about offending your doctor. In fact, most doctors welcome input from other medical professionals. Your overall wellbeing and the ultimate success of treatment is always the goal for a reputable medical professional, so having opinions from more than one qualified source can never hurt when you are trying to make an informed decision.

Be sure to request any lab work results, diagnostics, medical records, x-rays, and MRI images from your current doctor before making an appointment so that we can best assist you in providing a thorough second opinion.

We welcome new patients and are always looking to improve the lives of those in our community. If you have questions about our free MRI reviews or would like to schedule an appointment for a second opinion, contact our office today at (732) 899-9440.

Physical Exams

Here at Gail Zimmerman, MD, we recommend annual physical exams to ensure that your body is in optimal health and working as it should. This exam offers a great opportunity to discuss any concerns you may be experiencing, and allows your doctor to check for any emerging issues so they can be addressed quickly.

Physical exams are also often needed when applying for jobs, for insurance policies, to participate in team sports, and when travelling outside of the country. Your doctor will provide a comprehensive examination, order any necessary tests, and answer any questions you may have about your care. If you are in need of vaccinations, those can be taken care of at this time.

We ask that you bring a list of your current medications and supplements to your appointment so that we can make sure your record is up-to-date. If you have seen other doctors or specialists since your last examination, be sure to bring along the records from those visits as well.

Menopause Treatment

At Gail Zimmerman, MD, we are proud to help our patients who are going through menopause.

Most women experience menopause naturally after the age of 45, though symptoms can begin earlier. During this time, women typically stop having a monthly period as the ovaries stop producing progesterone and estrogen.

Common symptoms women experience during menopause include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, hair loss on the head and growth on the face, and difficulty focusing.

We know that these changes to the body can be difficult to navigate, and we are here for our patients who are learning to cope with menopausal symptoms. We take patient health and wellbeing very seriously, and we will carefully consider your medical and family history before recommending treatment for your symptoms. Be sure to let your doctor know if you are at an increased risk for osteoporosis, breast cancer, or heart disease, as these are important considerations when creating a treatment plan.

If you are experiencing symptoms associated with menopause, contact us today at (732) 899-9440. We would love to help you!
