Dr. Kimber explained my problem to me and what needed to be done. I was impressed by the fact that he seemed honest and in it for the patient. I have no more pain in my hips and legs after my surgery and I am still healing.

Had 2 surgeries with DR KIMBER because I had problems in my neck which improved the day of surgery so I wanted him to do my lower back too. Great surgeon and very very personable.

Since Dr. Kimber did my surgery I no longer am on any pain meds, no longer need to use my walker and I am feeling just great! Dr. Kimber didn't give me false hope. Everything healed just as he said it would and I am very grateful.
