Diagnosis: End Stage Degenerative Osteoarthritis
Since my 1st visit & subsequent hip replacements, I felt nothing but gratitude to be under Dr. Grimes' & his team's care. Kind, patient, efficient. His calm, reassuring demeanor & very capable hands dispelled my anxiety and made me feel hopeful for the 1st time in years. He is a gift to his profession. Bless Your Heart, Dr. Grimes.

I was a patient of Dr. Grimes in May of 2020, he did a complete hip replacement for me, I had the usual pain that goes along with this type of surgery. Dr. Grimes was amazing and in 2 weeks I was walking without a cane and able to drive and do the things I needed to do without pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Grimes, he was great!

Had knee replacement with Dr. Grimes and follow up visits were cordial and unable to make my knee painless. Sent to Dr. Pierce for months of injections including a wire in my leg which didn't work either. Still having knee pain and unable to use it for sitting, standing, walking, bending, etc affecting my upper front thigh also. What can I do. Had loads of PT also.

Dr Grimes replaced my left hip in 2016. I have had absolutely no problems, and was back on the tennis court in 8 weeks, thanks to his skill and his great PTs.

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.

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.
