Absolutely loved him. The wait was worth it. Explained what my son has, Anklyosing Spondylitis, and what he needed to be treated with. 12 weeks now and Michael is feeling normal again. Took his time to answer all our questions about these scary medications and he was correct about everything. 2 other rheumatologists we saw from big hospital groups could not care and wanted us out as soon as possible. All they wanted was for us to see other specialists in "their " hospital group. Why did my son need a colonoscopy and endoscopy? He didn't!! It was so worth going out of network to see Dr. Kimel. Only regret was not seeing him sooner. Thank you Dr Napolitano for the recommendation.

I think Dr. Kimel is the most compassionate, caring and conscientious physician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is truly professional and yet makes you feel so at ease and comfortable. I am so happy to have him as my rheumatologist and only wish his practice was not limited to just rheumatology. He is very knowledgeable in all phases of medicine and I just adore him!!

Did a great job of putting my daddy’s during his first visit. Came highly recommended. Did an excellent thorough consultation with bloodwork and x-rays.Hopefully our next visit will be as good as the initial visit. X-rays and lab work were also done within the same office which provided ease and convenience for my elderly father.

Compassionate, caring, and very smart. He rescheduled a patient's appointment in order to accommodate me. I am a retired teacher and Dr. Kimel thanked me for devoting my working life to educating kids. No doctor ever did that before.
