What inspired your passion for your profession?

I love how human my work is. What I do every day involves helping people attain their hopes of building a family and my patients and I are together dealing with remarkably intimate and personal life issues and goals. I love that I am afforded this space in people’s lives, even if briefly, to navigate these issues and hopefully to realize these dreams.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

At CCRM Boston, we provide a new fertility experience for the Boston region, blending a highly personalized approach with the best science. I can promise to focus on each patient individually and attentively, and be all at once, scientific, creative and thoughtful about their care. Our IVF lab takes a “nothing but the best” approach to technology and innovation. I love that we can offer and deliver this level of personalized care and success.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

Individuals seeking to fulfil their reproductive goals are dealing with incredibly challenging issues. My patients say that they appreciate my attentiveness and the positivity, energy and approachability that I bring to their journey. They’ve often said, working with me at CCRM is like a “breath of fresh air.” Humbly, I don’t see this as a major endeavor, it’s just what I do. I feel lucky to be able to do the work that I do.

What do clients have to say about you?

“I’ve had a number of reasons to seek Dr. Zimon’s help over the past few years, and have been so lucky to receive what I would consider to be the absolute best care during what I would otherwise label as a grueling process both physically and emotionally. Throughout many challenges, she’s demonstrated that she really cares about her patients and enjoys getting to know them on a more personal level. She’s also extremely (really, really, really) intelligent and stays informed of the latest and greatest developments in her field. When she made the decision to co-found CCRM Boston I followed her there, because she’s just that good, and it’s truly remarkable to see the love she and her co-founder, Dr. Styer, have put into every detail of this brand new facility. I also think it speaks volumes that the founders have formed a team of incredibly friendly and helpful professionals, most of whom they’ve worked with for many years - showing that the staff mirrors my respect for the founding physicians with their willingness to follow them to CCRM. If you’re in need of this type of care, I truly cannot recommend CCRM Boston enough.” – Google Review, 8/17/18

“We cannot say enough about the incredible experience that we had at CCRM Boston. From the moment we walked into the office, we felt supported, understood, and encouraged that Dr. Zimon and her staff would work tirelessly to help us to achieve our goal of having a baby. As we began our process, we were continuously impressed with each member of the CCRM Boston team: from Liz at the front desk who always greeted us with a smile, to the nurses who made themselves available to answer our questions big or small, to the lab technicians who promptly provided critical information to us and to our doctors, to our embryologist whose excitement about the growth and development of our embryos may have surpassed our own, and of course, Dr. Zimon, who approached her care for us with a sense of optimism and realism. We feel forever indebted to the entire team for helping us to achieve our biggest dream of having a healthy child. We are honored that our son Charlie is CCRM Boston’s first baby and look forward to supporting CCRM Boston as they provide the best care for couples who are also trying to have a child. Dr. Zimon told us early on, the process of trying to overcome infertility can bring any couple to their knees, and she could not have been more accurate; however, we feel so lucky to have had Dr. Zimon and her staff help pick us back up after every challenge we faced. "Thank you" will never, ever, be enough for making our most important dream and the best adventure of our life become a reality.” –Vitals Review, 7/24/18

We felt incredibly supported from the beginning of our time with CCRM and always felt that we were in very capable hands. The staff is caring, supportive, and very knowledgeable about infertility. We always felt that we could call with questions big or small and appreciated the open communication and willingness to hear our feedback. Dr. Zimon had the perfect balance of optimism and realism throughout the entire process. We are forever thankful to CCRM Boston and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend CCRM Boston to anyone!” –Facebook Review, 11/29/17
