AnnMarie Zimmerman, MD

I have worked in the Olean rural track of the UB program since 1998. At that time, I was working in New Hampshire and looking for the ideal opportunity, which I found here. It's hard to imagine that a small, slowly shrinking rural town would be anyone's ideal opportunity, but it really has been the perfect combination of teaching, community service and practice. Since I did a fellowship in obstetrics, I wanted a place in which I could practice my surgical obstetrical skills and support nurse midwives.  Currently, I help to support several nurse midwives in our practice. I also enjoy teaching obstetrics and family medicine to interested medical students and residents. Lastly, I wanted to work somewhere that I could make a significant positive impact on the health of a community, and as Medical Director of Universal Primary Care I have been working to improve the health of our area in very tangible ways.

I really value the practice of medicine, caring for many generations of one family, and being able to share that with others. I believe strongly in the family practice model of primary care across the stages of life and in all settings. In particular, I am interested in the care of women and through them supporting families.

I am also the Medical Director of our local Child Advocacy Center and our Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners program. I chair the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee at Olean General Hospital.

The Olean area is a very welcoming and family friendly place in which to live and grow and has taught me much about the interconnectedness and interdependence of every member of the community.
