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.

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.

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 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)
