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.
