Hear From Our Patients In Their Own Words  

  • I can’t say enough about this doc. He goes above and beyond the scope of the usual doc. Will do anything he has to do to accomplish the best outcome. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.” – Vein Patient
  • Having developed vericose veins at a young age and watching a family member go through the procedures multiple times with more than one doctor and little success, my experience with Dr. Kimmel and his staff was outstanding. The large bulging veins (that kept me out of shorts in the hot Florida sun) and the achiness/itching in my legs is gone. I had one session the resolve my spider veins as well which is proving to be equally successful. I would highly recommend Dr. Kimmel for anyone who needs to have this procedure done. And Melissa, Julie, Clara and other staff were excellent, professional, honest and great at what they do.”...
  • I wnet to Dr Kimmel for varicose veins. I had been to other doctors in the past and he is by far the most thorough and knowledgeable doctor I have been to. He treats the underlying issues first which many doctors do not. His staff is also fantastic. Professional, knowledgable and kind. If you need a vein doctor, do not go to anyone but him. Too many people advertise themselves as “vein treatment centers” and don’t know what they are doing. Dr Kimmel is truly a doctor who specializes in vascular issues and was great. Highly recommend.” – Vein Patient
  • From the first visit to the last I was very satisfied with the doctor and his wonderful assistant, nurse and staff. The words to use, caring, professional and answered all my questions clearly. I would definity recommend Dr, Kimmel to my family and friends. The doctor explained what he would do for the veins on my legs and the procedure. It has only been 3 weeks and my legs have improved so much & will continue to do so.Very positive experience.” – Vein Patient
