Dr. Gimbel is an exceptional physician - kind, caring, attentive, responsive and, of course, knowledgeable and skilled at his craft. I couldn't be happier with the care he's provided to my Dad. His resident, Dr. Tobler, was also wonderful and the staff was very good as well.

Dr Gimbel is one of the kindest, most compassionate doctors I've dealt with. He was there for me during a dramatic time and he made the journey much easier. I will genuinely miss our visits every two weeks.

Michael Gimbel is an excellent surgeon and a caring individual. I would recommend him without reservation

November 17, 2015

I was very impressed that Dr. Gimbel knew my history and recited everything to me perfectly at the onset of the appointment; doctors' names, procedures, and diagnosis that I have had in my past. He was extremely knowledgable and made me feel at ease that he would be excellent in helping me with my problem.

I always look forward to my yearly visit with Dr. Gimbel. Usually it is for a routine checkup. This time I had an MRI before my appointment.

October 07, 2015

I developed a wonderful relationship with this doctor. We have a great rapport with one another. I will miss seeing him and I would highly recommend him to future patients. Great doctor!

Dr. Gimbel and his staff are very concerned with my recovery from breast cancer and reconstruction. They always take the time to talk about the situation and do their best to make you feel comfortable in a sometimes uncomfortable situation. I would recommend Dr. Gimbel and his staff to anyone in need of this type of service.

September 09, 2015

Dr. Gimbel does great work. I really like his new nurse, Diane, as well. I had a mastectomy with reconstruction. It's been a rough year, but I am extremely grateful to have been referred to him to get me through it.
