Dr. Kimball spoke slowly while explaining my diagnosis of malignant invasive ductal carcinoma. She would pause to make sure I had no questions after each part of the treatment plan. She was positive and energetic at my late Friday appt. My husband was there to take notes, and Dr. Kimball made sure that he was involved in the discussion. I am over-joyed that there was a cancellation to allow me to have Dr. Kimbell as my consulting surgeon. I feel very secure in her capable care.
