We're sorry that you feel that you had problems after your treatment, but I cannot remember telling a patient that it's "not my fault". Perhaps if you got in touch with us to let us know more details about your specific issues, we could make further suggestions. Some patients heal faster than others, however the overwhelming majority of patients treated at the Kimmel Instititue have been very happy with their results.

Thank you for that kind praise. I have always tried to do the right thing for my patients, whether it was when I performed life-saving surgery, or my current elective vein procedures. I have taken the responsibility of providing excellent care with individualized attention to optimize each patient's experience. Our staff are all professional and highly accomplished, yet still maintain this same philosophy of care. That is why we stick by our work ethic of EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE.

Never recommend...office staff is rude and extremely inappropriate...Dr. Kimmel is a money monger...bleeds patient and insurance for worthless visits. The doctor is too good to meet the patient directly but uses ancillary staff to perform tests for which he should be present to answer patient...more

The majority of our patients are thrilled with their results . We encourage anyone to review several different sites such as VITALS.COM, or come in for a free screening. You will find out why so many patients, trust only us for their treatments. It is astonishing to read about our staff, who I am told at least weekly, are the best office staff patients have ever worked with! While we do not tolerate rude and inappropriate patients, our ethical standards are beyond reproach.
