    the most import thing in picking a doctor for my hip replacement was to make sure he was the best performing his job. I wanted the best way to heal after the surgery and to make sure i wouldn't have to do it again. The best way to get really good at something is to do it a a lot, Dr. Grimes office does it a lot. The recovery facility is top notch,the staff is excellent they are not my friend they are my medical team.
