Run away from this doctor. He is greedy, his patients are a number, and does not care about their diagnosis. He is very quick to offer surgery to make money. He is very quiet and does not provide any additional information. I was fooled by his sweet approach. Seek a second opinion if he suggest or recommends surgery. I had an unnecessary surgery which he made feel it was needed. Now I cannot eat and I am in pain. I was a very healthy person before meeting him. He has ruined my life.

Dr. Mims performed my parathyroid surgery in 2016. I was extremely pleased with his surgical skills, his kind and professional bedside manner and the excellent outcome of my surgery. I would use him for all other surgeries I may encounter in my life or those of my family members. My parathyroid growths are gone and my calcium levels are normal again. Thank you Dr. Mims and your entire surgical & medical team for taking such good care of me. Sincerely, Cindy K. Price

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!
