Dr. Grimes explained everything very clearly and I always felt like I knew what to expect. He is thorough without pushing anything unnecessary. I feel confident that I received the best treatment possible for my knee injury.

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.

Thanks to Dr. Grimes I am no longer in constant pain and able to resume a normal life. My hip replacement was quick, fairly painless and easy. Unfortunately I will have another and I hope Dr. Grimes will do this one as well!
