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.

Waited 6 weeks to see him, and when I walked into his office-there is my doctor who has been taking care of me for 14 years, waiting for his appointment to see Dr. Kimel. We laughed.. So if he is good enough to take care of my doctor then he was good enough for me. He was very thorough and did extensive testing and I am feeling great again.. Very kind and understanding and great attention to detail. Front desk were very rude and messed up my apt 2x, (Sue was helpful) but service is outstanding.

So glad a friend recommended Dr. Kimel to me for my arthritis. He is probably the nicest, most caring and capable doctor I have ever been to. His bedside manner is wonderful. Would highly recommend him if you have any arthritic issues.

Dr. Kimel in addition to his professional knowledge is a very caring man who goes out of his way to explain and comfort his patients. I travel from Queens every 8 weeks because he is worth it. Thank you Dr. Kimel.

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.
