Really great. He listened to me, answered my questions, was concerned about finding a diagnosis, and explained things very well. I was about 45 minutes early, and he came out to get me himself in just a few minutes.

Dr. Kimmelheim is an amazing doctor. He is my favorite provider. His care and concern goes beyond other providers. My friend was with me and said she wants him as a provider. He explains everything to you and offers options of treatment for you with good explanations. You don't feel like a number when you are with him. The rest of the staff is great as well. I hope BSW doesn't lose this dr. because it would definitely be a loss. Dr. Kimmelheim is truly a doctor for the people.

He is excellent. I am very pleased the way he explains everything that he is thinking about what to do in my case. He also has a wonderful bed side manner. He also gives you plenty of time and explains everything that you ask of him. I am very happy that I have him for my Dr.
