Dr. Kimmel and his PA did a great job at calming my nervous son down prior to surgery. They provided lots of thorough (but not gross!) explanations for how the surgery would go, and although no one ever WANTS to have surprise appendectomy surgery, it went better than expected. My son made a speedy recovery and the follow up visit was very efficient.

Dr. Kimmel is an amazing doctor! However, his front desk management is horrible. We had a 8:30am appt and arrived a 8:15am. One hour and 30 minutes later we were not seen. In that entire time, no one from the desk apologized or gave an update on his tardiness! The front desk staff needs drastic improvements. I will not schedule another appt unless I have at least 4 hours of time to wait.

Dr. Kimmel took care of my boy over spring break. He listened to our concerns and made accommodations to meet our needs since it was a holiday. Couldn't have been treated better.
