Ratings for Dr. Craig S. Kimmel
I suffered from severe Achilles tendonisis. A surgeon wanted to remove the tendon and replace it with a tendon from my big toe. I went to Dr. Kimmel instead. He gave me a PRP injection and performed a Tenex debridement about a year later. Today, my Achilles tendon is beautiful and in very good shape. Dr. Kimmel is a fantastic person and a fantastic doctor.
I had the Tenex procedure due to a 90% tear of my achilles along with bone spurs, bursitis and plantar fascitis. The whole visit was less than an hour and Dr. Kimmel was very thorough and with a minimum amount of pain. He also was able to give us his views on a few running topics including minimalist shoes and the pros and cons of running. Excellent doctor
I am a runner who came to Dr. Kimmel with a sore Achilles. After he saw me, I was discouraged because I had a tear in my Achilles and needed to stop running - temporarily. Dr. Kimmel gave me specific directions, which I have been following and when I went for my follow up this week, he told me that I was 3 weeks ahead of where he expected me to be. This is because he gave me precise and direct instructions as to how to heal. I will be back running sooner than later and really feel that Dr. Kimmel cares about getting us back into our sport as soon as possible. He spends as much time with me as I need, answers all of my questions and is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a sports medicine doctor. His staff, especially Louise, are patient, so kind and helpful.
Dr. Kimmel was the third sports doctor I saw for my sore tennis shoulder. He took the time to listen. His knowledge of tennis biomechanics helped him to cure my shoulder and raise my game to a new level. I have referred many friends who were thrilled with him. Checkout his high speed video analysis. He did an ultrasound on my shoulder in the office and told me immediately my rotator cuff was not torn. No expensive MRI needed.
I've been Seeing Dr Kimmel for 17 years and consider him family. He is one of the most caring, knowledgable physicians I've ever know. His demeanor is second to none and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to his practice. I feel Dr Kimmel has increased my quality of life as well as my longevity. Thank you, Dr Kimmel!!
