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!
