Patient Comments (5)
in Longmeadow, MA |
A fantastic person as well as a skilled physician. I had my knee operated on and did what he asked me to do and my recovery was nothing less than miraculous. His follow up was awesome as well. I can't recommend him enough
South Windsor, CT |
Very quick to push surgery, cuts corners to please worker's Comp which jeopardizes patients best interest. My surgery by Dr. Kimmel had to be corrected by another surgeon who confirmed some critical errors. I would reconsider any treatment by him.
Windsor, CT |
Couldn't be bothered to talk to me instead loudly gave his pa instructions from the other side of the door. Horrified by complete lack of caring.
Glastonbury, CT |
I had a very frustrating experience at Dr. Kimmel's office. I went in for a second opinion on my knee. Dr. Kimmel refused to see me if I didn't provide him with the earlier opinion first. Why? "That's our policy". But I pressed that it would bias the second opinion if he knew the first opinion. Nope. "That's our policy". I asked why such a polcy existed and if it made any sense? Didn't help. "That's our policy". I walked away. I don't need the opinion of a doctor who doesn't use common sense.

Had surgery on right shoulder torn rotator cuff from a quad accident . He did a great job because I had a major tear . I could not even lift my arm I really did not think I would get full use back . With his expertise I feel I had a complete recovery . I would recommend him to anyone who needs this kind of surgery .
