I am a new patient so have been to the office a few times. Dr Kimmel is okay. The thing I don't like they don't answer the telephones or return your phone calls. All you get are voicemails. His assistant not friendly. Reminds me too much of a meat market atmosphere like they are too busy to answer your calls but they want your money. Not sure if I will continue here or look elsewhere. I need questions answered they don't respond

I am a new patient and Dr Kimmel went out of his way to take my call when I needed him. He is too kind. I will continue to use him and would recommend this doctor to anyone. Not many doctors would do that.

Dr. Kimmel: This is your patient Oscar G. De Piñeres who has Lupus and cannot go now for your excellent treatment since I am out town. However, I started a treatment by another doctor Dr. Ariel Herrera Perez (Rheumatologist, Cartagena). He prescribed Hydroxychloroquine 200mg. If you have any comment about this pill, please, let me know soon. So far I am doing fine without any side effect. Also, if you have a different pill suggestion, order them to Humana Pharmacy (or the same). Thank you.
