Dr. Grimes took his time to explain all the procedures that would take place prior, during and after the operation. He is very well know in the field and came highly recommended. The care I have received was excellent and I have been improving quickly.

I HAVE USED DR.GRIMES FOR TWO TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENTS AND FOUND HIM TO BE THE BEST. I LIKE HIS APPROACH TO THIS SURGERY, THE FOLLOW-UP APPT'S TELLING ME WHAT TO EXPECT EVERY TIME I SEE HIM ABOUT MY PROGRESS WITH THE KNEE, AS WELL AS MY THERAPY.I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM FOR ANY PROCEDURE HE DOES AT ORTHOPEDIC ASSOCIATES IN ST. AUGUSTINE, FL. HIS PA'S ARE ON TOP OF EVERY VISIT TOO.

I strongly recommend Dr. Grimes. He is an excellent listener and provides feedback and options based on what you talk about. Dr. Grimes counseled a conservative treatment approach that allowed me to avoid surgery and get back to the golf course. Everything he said made sense and he made sure that I understood why he recommended the treatment that he did. I was impressed with his knowledge...he obviously takes a great deal of pride in helping his patients.

Dr. Grimes literally saved my leg and life. His devotion to my care was extraordinary. He went way beyond a doctor/patient relationship. I would not be walking today without him. It has been a long road but I always trusted his knowledge and care to get me through this. His staff is wonderful and always there to help.
in St. Augustine, FL |
Dr Grimes shows compassion, this I find highly commendable in a Doctor. I felt that I was included in the decisions made for my treatment, thankfully surgery was not needed, but I have every confidence in his abilities .

Dr. Grimes is a part of the community. He has been doing hip, knee and sports medicine for a very long time and is passionate about his profession. He also is always coaching and mentoring children in the community as well as keeping in touch with Flagler Hospital by serving on their various boards and holding various leadership positions. I trust him with all my heart.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr. Grimes is extremely knowledgeable and patient-focused. I am now home 2+ days following total knee replacement. He kept me informed beginning with the initial consultation and followed through before and after surgery. I still have some serious rehab in front of me but Dr. Grimes put me in an excellent position for a most positive outcome.

Awesome doctor!!! High recommend him for hips and knees!!
in Jacksonville, FL |
Dr. Grimes did my knee replacement. He did an awesome job! I recommend him to anyone with hip and knee problems! Kind, considerate, very knowledgeable and truly caring for his patients.
in St Augustine, FL |
I found Dr. Grimes through Flagler Hospital and decided he was the Orthopedist for me after the fabulous reviews. He and his staff are incredible. They are all attentive, friendly, and oh so patient! Believe me, I just brought my 18-year old daughter to Dr. Grimes after a car accident, and they never tired of her endless questions. She is now under Dr. Grimes care, along with myself.
in St Augustine, FL |
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.
