Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

I have been a patient of Dr. Grimm's for years and greatly respect him. However, I felt he was fairly dismissive at my last appt. Had no idea why I was there, even though I have a detailed history, including a recent hospital stay, on MyChart and explained my situation to his office when scheduling after I was referred by another CC specialist. He listened to my chest for a few minutes and reviewed my Echo results and said the specialist was wrong, my heart function seemed normal and I needed a second opinion, but never gave me any suggestions. He did order some follow-up blood work and a chest x-ray as a precaution, although he was confident I was having no post-surgery complications. The results appeared on MyChart the day after I had both done and they both indicated problems. I immediately messaged him to ask what I should do next. That was four business days ago and I still have not heard back. I have spent months and have a Clinic bill that continues to increase because of a hospital stay and numerous tests over the past 4 months, still with no answers. I definitely do not blame Dr. Grimm, but feel there needs to be more collaboration between two highly recommended specialists, both at the same world-renowned clinic. Dr. Grimm had never even heard of the specialist I went to, even though he is in the Clinic network as well. It is highly frustrating.

it is always a pleasure visiting Dr. Grimm. He is very cordial, attentive and willing to understand my concerns and do his best to address the symptoms I seem to display and try to solve the condition at "heart"! Scheduling appointments have always been most accommodating! I love the care I receive from the moment I walk in this facility!!

Dr Grimm is genuinely kind and caring. He takes time to make sure you thoroughly understand his explanations of whatever questions you may have. I have recommended him to several friends and have praised the Clinic and all staff to all who have questioned me. Can't say enough about the care I have been given!

I have seen this doctor on and off for over 18 years and never been so disappointed. The visit felt rushed. He did not even know I had just had my test before seeing him. When I asked questions that are in his field he said to "defer" my questions to one of my other doctors. My follow up note was totally not correct and was sent to my PCP. It needs to be corrected. Most disappointing visit to the clinic ever.

dr. Grimm was very informative. Dr. Grimm explained the anatomy of the heart how the chambers work how the valves work and what exactly was wrong with my valve. He explained that it needed to be fixed. Dr. Grimm also explained that there were surgical procedures that could fix this problem. He also explained that Dr. Roselli and the surgeon time would make the determination of what procedure would work best to fix it in my case personally. when the doctor talk to you typed in laymans terms I understood everything he explained and that was greatly appreciated. Because seeing all the different entities that I had to see on this visit to be evaluated was overwhelming to say the least. But the Cleveland clinic made it so streamlined and so easy it was so greatly appreciated. Everyone I encounter was caring nice and efficient.

I have given NO followup instructions and the test results are all in "Doctor speak" and I don't understand that. The test results should be conveyed in easy to understand english; not technical jargon.
