Get to Know the Docs at The Auto Hospital in Reno

For 20 years now, The Auto Hospital has been the cure for the common automotive repair shop in Reno. Troy Zimmerman (our head technician-physician) and his wife, Mary, established the business in January 1996, and we’ve been keeping Reno cars and trucks healthy ever since. We provide more one-on-one service than most auto repair shops, just like your family doctor as opposed to a walk-in medical clinic. In the beginning and today, personalized care is The Auto Hospital’s defining characteristic.

We offer a minimum of 1 year (up to 2 years) nationwide warranty, with parts on a per-part basis. References are available upon request. Whether your car is already ill, or just in need of a physical, the doctor is always in at The Auto Hospital!
