Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kimball "My goal is to put the patient in charge of their care. Although spinal and brain related health problems can be complicated, I want each of my patients to feel they fully understand their treatment options. I always explore every non-operative treatment before even considering surgery. When there are no better long term treatments, I offer unique minimally invasive spine surgery techniques, often operating through incisions the size of a dime, this reduces pain, risks, and recovery time."

Patient Comments (14)
in Castle Rock, CO |
I never expected to need to see a neurosurgeon, but after a sports injury in California that fractured vertebrae in my neck & back & being hospitalized two nights, I needed to find a specialist I could trust when I came back to Colorado. I was referred to Dr. Brent Kimball by a friend who had brain surgery. Dr. Kimball & his staff at the Lone Tree & Castle Rock offices are phenomenal, and I appreciate his focus on the healing process, appropriate exercise & diet, and genuine care for the patient

Dr. Kimball performed a disk replacement surgery on me in 11/15 and the results were life changing. I had been told by other physicians that I must have a disk fusion which was recommended by my insurance provider. Dr Kimball and his team was willing to take on my insurance and persuaded them to provide for a disk replacement. I was back on my feet in a week and my pain was simply gone. It was life changing. I plan to return to Dr Kimball for any neurosurgical needs.

I will always. Have Dr. Kimball as my back Dr
Colorado Springs, CO |
This is the worst doctor's office I've EVER been. He'ss rude, his staff is rude. They NEVER call you back - ever. I've left probably 7 msgs for them over the last 3 wks & still no answer to my questions. I currently have surgery scheduled & re-arranged all my other appts/infusions, then he decided to move it to a another surgery ctr that would be easier. They still have not called me back to let me know if I am still having surgery tomorrow morning or not & where. Unprofessional.

The most unorganized, rude & arrogant Dr's office. FAILURE! Would not recommend.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Combs; Day 4 Post Op: Dr Brent Young Kimball (neurology) is very intelligent, considerate, caring and a truly gifted surgeon! Dr K is really a genius! The full replacement at C6 & C7 was a PERFECT fit, alleviating all shoulder, arm, and finger pain almost immediately! The change is (already) amazing! Dr Kimball (and staff) never "talked down" to anyone - neither did he apply pressure. Thank you Dr. K, for the great experience, and quality work you have done for my cervical spine.

Dr Kimball is a gifted physician, as well as Sean McGee his PA.I recommend them as clinicians and surgeon. The front office however is grossly negligent, i.e. appts not scheduled even after we had a written card, this happened twice. We were unable to get prescriptions refilled after 3 calls from the pharmacist and one from me.
in Englewood, CO |
Dr. Kimball and Sean, his PA, are definitely a dynamic duo! They have taken great care of me throughout the course of my surgery and recovery. I was very lucky to have Dr. Kimball on call the night I needed emergency brain surgery. Now, whenever I mention his name to medical professions, they say, "Yes, you were in good hands". Thanks for saving my life!
in Centennial, CO |
Dr. Kimball perform my cervical spine surgery 8 months ago. I am almost totally healed and have no pain. He is very professional very knowledgeable the best neurosurgeon around. I highly recommend him
Parker, CO |
My husband has been to several surgeons regarding his back problems. Dr. Kimball explained and answered our questions. He spent all of the time we needed to help us understand the procedure he would be performing. We never felt rushed or talked down to. He is a very kind, caring and friendly person who strives to give the best care to his patients. We feel so fortunate that we found Dr. Kimball. Furthermore, his PA Sean was also extremely knowledgable and caring.
Denver, CO |
While I feel Dr. Kimball is highly qualified, and does well with explaining things during your visit, I felt like a relatively anonymous number in general. Even though I had seen him before, he didn't seem to recall anything from my previous appointment. Also, his front desk staff are extremely rude and dismissive. I felt like I was putting them out just by showing-up.
in Lone Tree, CO |
I came to Dr. Kimball with a serious health need that had to be addressed immediately. He took the time to fit me into his schedule, took a great deal of time to explain medically what was going on, and exactly what next steps were to get me healthy. He was caring, thorough and professional. I felt cared for and listened to. The day of my surgery, he took time to come visit with me before and after surgery. He brought me back to full health. I am walking and living life today thanks to him!
in Parker, Colorado, 80134 |
Worst Dr. I have never dealt with.After waiting for 2 hours and 47 minutes we saw his P.A. As Dr.Kiimball decided to just leave his office. This was a serious appt. He obviously felt his time was more important then ours. We would like to bill him for the three hours my husband had to take off of work.
in Gothenburg, NE |
Dr. Kimball was kind and compassionate. We truly felt that he wanted what was best my mom and was not just looking for another surgical patient. He was very knowledgeable about my mom's problem and explained it to the family in terms that everyone could understand. He took the time to listen and answer all our questions.
