About Me

Dr. Zimmerman chose pediatrics because she believes there is something special about helping children grow into healthy adults. She credits her mother, a former kindergarten teacher, for teaching her patience and the rewards of working with children.

I love working with children and their parents. Whether educating them on how to be healthy or helping them through an illness or injury, the rewards of being able to help them are returned to me ten-fold. I have two children, and as a physician and mother, my focus is always on what is best for my young patients.

Dr. Zimmerman grew up in Palos Verdes, California and says she is glad to be home in Southern California, although she did develop a fondness for snow after spending several years in the mid-west. Time outside of the office is devoted to her husband and children, as well as a dog, several cats and numerous fish. She also enjoys reading novels, growing her own fruits and vegetables, and is currently working on her next degree of black belt in Shaolin Kempo, an Asian martial art.
