      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 may have contributed to my knee damage. That being said, he did a great job with the arthroscopy, however he did not offer physical therapy, which would have helped tremendously with heal time.

      While Dr Kimball is a very knowledgeable and skilled surgeon his self superior attitude towards others was a real turn of for me. He was condescending towards me and didn't seem to care about what I was needing post surgery. It was all his agenda. The work he did on my shoulder was fantastic and beyond what I had hoped for. I just wouldn't go back.

      Dr. Kirt Kimball is wonderful & very knowledgeable.. He has help my wife with several problems, including a few that are not related to his field of practice. I like his strait forward approach. He is friendly, accurate and tells it like it is. A great Doctor. We need more like him. I highly recommend him. Thanks for helping my wife and going the extra mile to see to her care.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Kimball's Care Philosophy

      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.
