Dr. Gimness is phenomenal! He is attentive, and gives you the level of care you expect and require. He treats all of my family. He currently has 2 amazing nurse practitioners that work along his side. They are ever so caring and knowledgeable. His staff is the absolute best! Check in and check out is a breeze. The MA's are experienced. He has an in-house dispensary, which is awesome. The techs are bright and resourceful. Dr. Gimness and his entire staff show you nothing but compassion.

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 physician...anywhere. His front office staff experiences a lot of turnover, but several have been there for a good length of time, they're the good ones that meet or exceed his expectations.

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!!

Nice person, clean facility, staff not very professional. The person over the pharmacy and records is atrociously bad at the job. Dr Gimness has a wonderful bedside manner but didn't bother to read my history before our appointments so most of our time was spent going over all the history I had already filled out beforehand. Although very nice he was not very helpful helping me deal with RA problems and did absolutely nothing to diagnosis neck, lower back and hip pain.

When Dr Gimness moved to Plant City from Winter Haven I sought him out because of the excellent care I had received. I drive from Winter Haven because he is the best doctor I have found for maintaining my health. I trust him completely.
