What People Say About Dr. James Grimes, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

In consultation, Dr Grimes told me I needed a total hip replacement, A second opinion at JOI in Jax revealed that all I needed was a decompression, the surgery was done by JOI . My hip is now 100 % free of pain, but I am still suffering from Dr Grimes's injection during his consultation. His assistant injected me for a "diagnostic test" that injured a nerve in the process, it sent me to the stratosphere of pain, and paralyzed me, I ended up in ER the next day. I am suffering every step I take, the injured nerve might never get better. Stay away if you want to keep all your parts, and not suffer unnecessarily.

Had TKR in October 2018. All went very well. Followed with PT for approx. 3 mos. and that too went well. Glad I had the operation.

Dr. Grimes is very thorough, very good on the follow up visits, and genuinely seems to care how you’re doing when you come in for every follow up visit. I would recommend him to anyone going through a knee/hip replacement.

He seemed in a hurry. Barely made eye contact. I was not impressed.

He was very direct, honest, and patient with me, and personally followed up after my complete knee replacement. I would recommend him to any one who needs orthopedic surgery.

Dr. Grimes was very efficient in diagnosing my torn shoulder muscle, and promptly performed the surgery to repair the muscle.
