Dr. Gimbel is an excellent doctor and surgeon. I had 3 office visits before my corrective surgery and each time he gave me 100% of his attention and answered my questions and eased my concerns. My surgery went better than he expected and I am extremely pleased ! THANK YOU DR. GIMBEL !
Outstanding service with utmost professionalism and respect for patient's privacy and concerns/needs.
I can't praise Dr Gimbel and his nurse Diane for their excellent patient care. Dr Gimbel is an amazing surgeon, yet still has an excellent bedside manor and so much compassion. He did reconstruction for me due to breast cancer which was a lot for me to take in and his calm confidence made me feel reassured through a difficult time. His nurse, Diane, is always available for questions and concerns and almost always answers her phone when you call. If you do need to leave a message she returns your call almost immediately.

I think Dr. Gimball, and everyone I have met that he works with and teaches are amazing people, and I am blessed to have them treating me!
I waited in the exam room for 1/2 hour and the doctor spent less than 5 minutes with me. In fact after a very quick exam I didn't even sit down with the doctor to discuss options for treating the condition I have.
My experience was better then I had expected.. I am very VERY HAPPY!!! Great JOB!!!

I went to the provider because I was concerned about the possibility of ca, my fears were put to rest. All in all, the office staff, resident and provider acted in a professional manner.
He made time to see me when I needed post surgical reassurance
All labs test X-rays .. All testing results were given to me and each was explained to me about what was good and what I needed further testing for...and they followed up with those tests results ...excellent care
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.
I was thrilled with the professionalism and kindness of Dr, Gimbel.
Michael Gimbel is an excellent surgeon and a caring individual. I would recommend him without reservation
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.
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.
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.
this was a follow-up from surgery. Dr. Gimbel and his staff, made sure I was informed of all the details of that surgery. All pre-op testing was done in a timely and convenient schedule. I could not be more pleased with my ceare both pre and post surgery. Dr. Gimbel is kind and caring as well as a gifted surgeon
My procedure was done by Dr. Gimble in August 2015. He and his staff were both professional and caring. I noticed that he spoke very respectfully to his staff. Everyone is the OR that morning was exceptional. My office visit in September was equally pleasant.
always feel very comfortable
My visit was a follow up from surgery. I have been in great hands with a wonderful doctor and staff.
My experience with Dr. Gimbel has been excellent. Dr. Gimbel has always shown patience and understanding during my care. He has always answered any questions I may have had clearly. He is a excellent surgeon and true professional.
My experience was a great one , he was very courteous and helpful he made me feel very comfortable. ..
I saw another provider and had a horrible experience. someone I know, recommended his provider and I was extremely happy with him. Very compassionate, knowledgeable and I so far (after one appointment) I would recommend him.
Dr. Gimbel is very polite and extremely professional. I recommend him to any one with breast cancer.
dr. gimble was very courteous and helped me to feel at ease in a difficult time of decisions. I'd recommend him to anyone who is having reconstruction.
Dr Gimbel answered all of my questions before I even asked. He was very thorough and made sure I understood his suggested care.
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Gimbel. He made me feel very comfortable and confident about both the procedure and his abilities. He was able to answer all of my questions and explained the procedure in-depth to me. He was comprehensive, understanding of my concerns, and willing to work with my to achieve the best possible results. He gave me information related to his experience and even drew diagrams of incisions and possible scarring. Although I may not end up going through with the procedure at a UMPC procedure, it is purely for practical reasons and has nothing to do with my experience there. Overall I would highly recommend both the facility and Dr. Gimbel.
This was my first visit and I was very impressed the doctor, his assistant Diane, and the staff. I will be having surgery tomorrow, the 31st, at Shadyside Hospital. I'm nervous, but have complete confidence in Dr. Gimble.
