Patient Comments (10)

Staff is very rude. If they didn’t want to work they should find another job. Especially Stephany. I called to request records sent for a referral and she was practically yelling at me on the phone with an attitude. She should really watch how to talks to patients.

Dr. Gimness is only our 2nd PCP in 31 years. He is thorough and takes very good care of us. He is very caring, a good listener and an awesome Dr. We cannot say enough good things about "Dr. G". Four family members go to him.

I too followed him from Winter Haven because I think he's an excellent family physician. He will not hesitate to recommend a specialist if he thinks you should see one. He's friendly, very intelligent, and serious about your health matters. I've never experienced a more helpful family...more

This was by far the best experience I have had at a Dr. Office. He was addressed all my concerns and was very patient and understanding. He took his time and did a thorough evaluation. I feel like I will never need to find another doctor!!
