For many year my visits had very good results. It is sad that management Department did not allowed my son and I to continue seeing Dr. Himmel. But more sad was that Dr. Himmel allowed it, we did not bad, it was retaliation due a fair complaint that we did. We found a very good doctor in Denver Colorado, GOD did not left us alone..

I have had Dr. Himmel as my doctor since 2010. He performed surgery on my left eye for cataract and Fuchs' Distrophy in 2012. I am very satisfied with the results and will have surgery by Dr. Himmel in 2020 on my right eye to treat a cataract and my Fuchs' Distrophy in 2020. He has followed up with me semi-annually and he is always professional, informative and supportive. As a very busy doctor, I appreciate that he is always friendly and warm.

Dr, Himmel understands more about the eye than I can fathom. He remembers his patients and shows a genuine concern for how well they can see. He is easy to talk to and willing to listen. Unfortunately most of his appointments run late so expect to wait awhile.
