We are excited to meet and help you with any foot or ankle problems you may be experiencing.  Contact us today to find out if your insurance company requires a referral. We accept most insurance plans, including United Healthcare, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Humana, Aetna, Medicaid, Medicare, and Medicare supplemental policies.

At your new patient visit please bring a photo ID, your new patient forms (if downloaded), a current list of medications, and any insurance information you may have.

The Doctor
Paul Zimmerman, DPM

As a Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, Paul Zimmerman, DPM specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot and ankle conditions. Dr. Zimmerman is an expert in the surgical treatment of deformities of the foot and related structures, and the medical management of foot diseases. His patients include those living with diabetes, sports related injuries, workplace injuries, and running disorders, as well as all adult ages and children. Dr. Zimmerman is a leader in preventive health care, combining cutting edge medicine with personalized attention. 

Many patients seen by Dr. Zimmerman are referred by family practice physicians, internists, or specialists who wish to have their patients treated by a doctor specifically trained in foot and ankle disorders. However, at Boone Podiatry, PA, unless your insurance policy requires a referral, we do not require a referral to make an appointment.
