Dr Mims performed a complete thyroidectomy on me in March 2016. His medical assistant was extremely efficient and provided excellent instructions and guidance. Dr Mims was an excellent surgeon. He seemed to respect me as a patient and was always on time, provided excellent guidance, ensured I understood everything and had excellent bedside manner. I would recommend him without hesitation

Dr. Mims performed my total thyroidectomy on 1/29/16. Everything from consult, to pre-op, to surgery, to post-op exceeded my expectations, and the results were fantastic-- no complications, virtually no visible scar at 2/8 (10 days post-op), all questions answered. Dr. Mims is one of the best physicians I've ever had- he is kind, knowledgable, thorough, proactive, and responsive, and has fantastic bedside manner. Highly recommend!
