in La Paz, Mexico |
I have used Dr Kimball for 4 different knee surgeries and I would not trust anyone else. His expertise is the best I have found and he is very professional. He is one of the top doctors from Smith and Nephew list of doctors and that is where I discovered him. I feel I am in the best of hands...more
