Reviewed on May 8, 2019

I would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone. I have never experienced a worse appointment with a medical professional in my life. the nurse was rude & then when the doctor came in he was arrogant, rude, and seemed to know everything about me without ever meeting me. he made many comments that I had been doctor shopping, when in realty every doctor I have had had retired. he talked over me, examined the wrong injured arm, refused to answer my question about a medication I was on that was almost out & told me it wasn't his problem. once we said thank you for your time but it wasn't going to work out he actually stormed out of the room & slammed the door in our face. it was extremely unprofessional & I have never experienced something like that in my life.

dr Grimm and the nurse who is usually with him (I can't remember her name right now but she's been with him for years and is at every appointment) are always great and they always know exactly who I am and what's been going on, prior to coming in. that may be because I am there so often and they are checking my file beforehand, but you'd be surprised how many doctors I've seen who very obviously don't care. very grateful to have been referred to this great team years ago
