Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Kimball listened and took the time to answer all of my questions. He made sure I received all the care I needed.
Great doctor with nice staff
Registration for a new patient was as one would expect. Staff very courteous. The Fellowship Dr. who saw me prior to Dr Kimball was very professional, thorough, and informative. Dr Kimball did a nice job of explaining my potential condition and course of action to further diagnose and treat. Overall, it was a very worthwhile visit. Thank you all...
Very pleasent and explained my hand problem and a treatment plan.
Dr. Kimball and hos team provide excellent care in a welcoming and efficient manner. If only all medical offices were run this well!
Dr. Kimball is knowledgeable and friendly, laid out my options nicely in terms of cost, time, physical impact, and long term outcome.
Dr. Kimball is an excellent physician. He's always looking to avoid surgery at all costs and will encourage the non-surgical treatment option if he believes it has utility. As an athlete, I loathe the idea of an extensive surgery and time away from my sport, so I genuinely appreciate this approach. I've seen Dr. Kimball for two discrete injuries and his recommendations for treatment were spot on both times.
I was taken in promptly. Everyone I had contact with was super nice. Dr was easy to understand, gave me several options, and took time to explain my injury.
He was warm, responsive, and practical. I would highly recommend him.
VERY PROFESSIONAL AND A GOOD DOCTOR
Very professional, diagnosed the issue quickly. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Kimball is terrific. He is very welcoming, listens to you about what is going on and able to provide recommendations and suggestions in a very patient-friendly (i.e. plain language) way. I highly recommend him.
It was worth the wait!
Prompt, precise, thorough
I was delighted with my visit. He affirmed confidence within me that with time and care my tennis elbow would get better. I felt heard, affirmed and cared for.
Dr Kimball was very nice and made the diagnosis and treatment in the same visit.
Dr. Kimball put me at ease right away. He answered all of my questions and then some. I will have my surgery next week.
Dr. Kimball is professional and personable. Direct but compassionate. He gave me a thorough review of my situation and presented options along with the pros and cons of each. He gave me his recommendation and reasoning for it. I'm sure that I wil be returning in a few months to have the surgery be recommended. I have a great deal odd confidence in him and his ability.
love Dr Kimball, ordinary guy with a good personality who seems to know what he's doing and talking about, the staff know matter which office is always very nice and knowledgeable
Dr. Kimball was thoughtful, respectful, and clear. He offered a diagnosis and treatment plan that took into consideration my personal goals and lifestyle.
Dr Kimball is a fantastic guy with very patient attitude, and my painful situation was taken care in the shortest amount of time.
I was screened by one of the doctors staff and sent for an X-ray promptly. The results were available quickly and I met with the doctors assistant to do some initial assessments. Very shortly after I met with the doctor, who was thorough and ordered treatment. All staff were excellent.
DR. KIMBALL IS A VERY NICE MAN-PERSONABLE AND INFORMATIVE-DIDN'T JUMP TO SURGICAL INTERVENTION, EXPLAINED CAUSE OF PROBLEM IN DETAIL-WITH LITERATURE. DIDN'T "DUMB IT DOWN". I AM HAPPY TO BE A PATIENT OF DR. KIMBALL.
love him, he's the best.....and so is The Baptist Hospital
Very thorough, great manner, would highly recommend.
Dr. Kimball changed my life! I suffered a debilitating wrist injury and was told by multiple surgeons before him that I would have to live with it (using a brace) and then get it fused. I was also told that if I tried a surgery to fix it, it would be a very long recovery and the outcome most likely wouldn't be that good. Being a athlete and a father, it lead me to depression...knowing I could never pick up my children again or cycle. Thankfully another surgeon put me in touch with Dr. Kimball. He was very confident he could repair my wrist and he did! Today, after 10 months from the injury and 4.5 from the surgery, I was able to pick my children up again over my head with ease. Thank you so Much Dr. Kimball!!! (BTW, he did surgery on Rondo of the Celtics recently which is in the press)

Dr. Kimball is a wonderful doctor and a very pleasant man.
Really listened to my concerns and open to trying a less aggressive treatment rather than offering surgery as the only solution. Very pleasant, great bedside manner, no pressure to schedule another appointment that I may or may not need. While I hope I can avoid further treatment, Dr. Kimball will be my immediate choice if I require.
