This was my first visit with Dr. Kimmey. I found him to be a very good listener, knowledgeable, and kind. He offered various options of treatment and his best advice for moving forward. I felt like I was in good hands.

Misdiagnosed both me and my mother. Missed GI Cancer in my mom that may end up costing her life. A family doctor ended up picking up on it after it had already spread. Does not listen to patients or take them seriously.

I Started seeing Dr. Kimmey probably thirteen year's ago after being sent to the univirsity of washington, for tests, over and over again, by group health, I was sick! My quality of life was zero! He gave me back my life! He was honest! And when he was leaving the UW, he told me what I needed to do to stay healthy! And what not to do! And I listened! He is the most amazing Doctor I have Ever met! TRUST HIM!
