Meet Joshua O. Zimmerman, MD
I am a general adult psychiatrist with a current clinical focus on treating patients with eating disorders at the Melrose Center. I’ve worked in a wide variety of prior clinical settings, including an HIV clinic, a community clinic and a general psychiatric clinic. I enjoyed seeing patients with a wide variety of diagnoses, including OCD, bipolar disorder and patients with complicated medical problems.
I am also a Senior Medical Director for behavioral health. This means that, in addition to providing clinical services, it is my job to lead all the mental health services within Health Partners and Park Nicollet.

More about me
I love helping people see their mental health problems as a medical issue, not a personal shortcoming. I find talking to people and building relationships over time the most satisfying part of medicine, which made psychiatry a good fit for me.
I do my best to put patients in charge of their recovery. I try to give them as many options as possible in terms of treatments and help them choose the treatment that best fits their needs. I am open, honest and caring.
I enjoy traveling, gardening, fishing, hunting, playing guitar and playing piano in my free time. I have a pit bull mix who is the best dog ever.
Spending time with my family, playing music, cooking and getting enough sleep!
I am a goofball.
I wanted to be a professional fisherman.
Supposedly Harmon Killebrew's father let him play baseball in the yard despite it destroying his lawn and said, "We're raising boys, not grass." It's a good reminder about what really matters.
I can catch fish four blocks from my house.
