Dr Michael Gimbel is an outstanding Plastic Surgeon! From the first visit prior to surgery, he explained the procedure in detail. He cared about the result I wanted, and with his expertise, we have achieved a marvelous outcome. I'm very happy with my result. Dr Gimbel cares about his patients, is straight-forward in conversation, and will go the extra mile to assure his patients satisfaction.

I am so disappointed in the care I received from Dr. Gimbel and the way he ended things with me. I was seeing Dr. Gimbel for a keloid scar in the middle of my chest. I went to him to have the scar removed. The only thing he did was make the scar flatter and less sensitive. Even though it is flatter and less sensitive, when you look at the scar straight ahead, it still looks the same, but now it is highlighted because now the skin surrounding the scar is lighter than my normal skin color, which was caused by his method of treatment. He wanted nothing more to do with me after that, and told me to seek help from a dermatologist. When I asked him for a referral, he refused. I would never recommend him to anyone. I am very upset.

I saw Dr.Gimball as consultation for Rt.Stage 2 breast CA,and possible reconstructive surgery. He was very nice,answered all my questions, along with providing additional information. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond both of our control,my insurance as of June 30,2019 will not have him as an in network provider. A severe loss on BCBS of Tn/Highmark's part. He was kind enough to give me another doctors name.

Very pleasant capable surgeon

April 23, 2019

the provider was very busy and I had to wait a long time. It was very cold in the waiting room and I suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia which is effect by cold. Hover the visit in all was good.

Disappointing appointment. We went over steps about correcting my reconstruction done by another surgeon. Each change that we went over step-by-step all seemed doable but in the end he said he didn't think I would be happy with the results and didn't think he wanted to take me on as his patient. From his demeaner when he first was stepped into the exam room, I feel he made up his mind before he even talked with me.
