Dr. Kimel is the best! As a doctor he is smart and knowledgable, skilled and professional. He stands out for his kindness and compassion, and his warmth and caring. He treats his patients with great respect, as whole people. I always look forward to seeing him, even when I know he will put a needle in my knee! I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Could not ask for a better doctor! My mother was suffering for months with severe pains and her doctor sent her to the orthopedist who told her she needs new knees and a new shoulder. Then we heard about Dr Kimel from my primary and he was AMAZING! Got her diagnosis of Polymioalgia Rheumatica and she is a new person. She was smiling at Christmas opening presents with the kids and playing with them. He gave her he life back. We are so grateful. He was kind, compassionate, and took his time looking up all the bloodwork and X-rays and past doctors note. Explained everything so simple that my mom anxiety was calmed. Even her primary care doctor raved about him. Its worth the wait and you won't be disappointed. Wish there were more doctors like him now a days. THANK YOU Dr K. If I could give him 10 stars I would.

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.
