Why Choose the Kimmel Institute
Committed To Excellence
Premier vein and aesthetic care in Palm Beach County
Why choose the Kimmel Institute? We are committed to professional excellence in everything we do. Our care has been refined by nearly 30 years of serving the community as a private practice. Doctor Richard Kimmel’s extensive experience began with the opening of his surgical practice in 1991, and offers an unparalleled level of medical service to those seeking vein care or laser aesthetic care.
Nationally recognized as a leader in the field of vein care, and a board-certified cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Kimmel served as president of the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons from 2013-2014 and remains active as a past president. The Kimmel Institute is a center of excellence, and has provided laser training for surgeons from around the country. All vein treatments are performed by Dr Kimmel, and the staff is made up of licensed and certified medical specialists.
Unlike so many other vein offices, where the physician was trained in other specialty areas, Dr Kimmel’s entire career has focused on Cardiovascular and Thoracic surgery. This is not a new field for us. So before going to another office, ask yourself “Is this doctor a Board-Certified Cardiovascular or Vascular Surgeon?”

We are committed to your care. Every patient gets an individualized treatment plan to meet their specific problems. We will work with you to get the procedures approved by your insurance company whenever possible, and will never do a procedure without discussing the potential cost to you in advance.
