Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kimball "My understanding of the relationship between a physician and patient is that we work together to accomplish a desired goal. My principle roll is to provide the patient with accurate information about their condition or diagnosis. That usually includes defining options of treatment that are available in managing a particular condition. As a surgeon, my skills include a variety of very specific surgical procedures which may be of benefit in certain situations. I wish that I could only do surgery where everyone did as well as they desired. Unfortunately there is a degree of uncertainty in everything. I give my best effort in applying my skills, my experience, advancing and ever changing technologies and my judgment to each circumstance or situation. Most of the time both the patient and I are happy at the end of the day but there are few if any guarantees in this business we call the practice of medicine."

Dr. Kimball excels in the latest surgical techniques that offer faster recovery with greater success than other Utah doctors are willing to try.

As mentioned by a previous review, Dr. Kimball is very knowledgeable, but I also found him condescending. The few times I saw him he would say that I am overweight and that I need to get skinnier repeatedly throughout the appointments. He didn't want to hear how years and years of horseback riding...more
