  1. Kimball is lousy. My husband was taken in by hatzolah for a fall. They took xrays and sent home home with an all clear, to keep taking Motrin for pain. 3 weeks later, after still suffering from pain, and not being able to do daily functions such as opening a seat belt, putting on a jacket etc, hr went to a hand specialist 8n orthopedics. He took one x-ray which showed the 4lbow fractured. The drs words when he saw that ‘ shame on them for not picking that up!’ another story is of a friend that felt a bone in her throat, the took xrays and said it must have passed and she can go home. So she left and a few minutes later coughed up the bone. These are just two examples. Think twice before going there.
