Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grimes "The first step in treating a patient with pain is to obtain an accurate diagnoses. We do this by actually listening to the patient and also by examining them. That accomplished we then go over all available options and decide , in cooperation with the patient, which ones to pursue. This is optimally accomplished with a combination of interventional procedures and medication management."

Patient Comments (1)
in Las Vegas, NV |
I came to Dr Grimes with a rotator cuff injury to my right shoulder. I had tried physical therapy for several months and achieved some improvement but not nearly enough to get back to playing tennis. I saw Dr. Grimes and had two prolo therapy treatments. I probably could have used a third but had no time. My shoulder improved immensely and got me back to playing tennis probably 6 months sooner than my family doctor predicted. The staff there was always courteous and helpful! A positive result!!
