He is a very good orthopedic surgeon. He did rotator surgery on my should. When I went back it was tore in a different spot. He let me know up front that I would need shoulder replacement. He referred me to someone who could do my surgery.

My experience with Dr.Grimaldi was totally awesome. He took the time to listen to what I had say. He knew exactly what to do with the pain that I was having and this is the first time I have had no pain in over two years. I feel like I finally have my life back. I would definitely recommend Dr.Griamldi to anyone else , and I already have.

I recommend anyone to Dr.Gimaldi that was in the shape that I was in. the first few weeks were pretty rough but now I feel 100% better, with my walking and my just general mood. Not angry anymore or anything becaue it was fixin to go down but now I feel great. Dr.Grimaldi has turned out to be my best friend.

I had a herniated disk and sciatic pain and could barely walk. I had surgery and had no pain in my legs or back after I woke up. I would recommend Dr.Grimaldi to anyone who is having back issues.

I had a herniated disc and I could not walk prior for like a month. I made a same day appointment to see Dr.Grimaldi and he immediately admitted me to the hospital after my CT scan. I had surgery on my back and was up and able to walk around that afternoon pain free, my stiches were the uncomfortable part. I would absolutely recommend Dr.Grimaldi.

I was a little weary of the procedure on my back at first before i spoke with the Dr. Grimaldi. He was very professional and explained it in detail exactly what was going to happen. I laid down on the table and after 10 minutes we were done and i haven't had an issue since my procedure. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone else and I know where to come in the future.

My experience with Dr. Grimaldi has been miraculous. Originally, I was sent home from a hospital in Knoxville unable to walk, or feel my leg and foot. This was due to a fragmented disc, per the MRI, Knox Drs. ordered and read. ER sent me home after a few hrs., even though I was taken in by ambulance. I assume if you need help Christmas Eve they aren't fully available. Fast forward to Dr. G...he's WILLING, honest, compassionate, professional & thorough providing me great relief with a discectomy.

I had terrible pain in my neck and arm, tried all treatments to stop the pain. Dr Grimaldi performed the surgery, woke up in recovery pain free. However I only saw the doctor the day I scheduled my surgery and the day of surgery. Saw his PA with all the appointments, which he was very knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend going to this office.

I had a total reverse shoulder replacement done on October 26th. I am 6 weeks out, and I have a just a small ache and pain. Before surgery, my level of pain was a 5 or 6 constant. I am glad I did the surgery and now I have to do strengthening and Physical Therapy and then I can't wait to get back to golfing.

Horrible bedside manner, non-empathetic, no examination, completele waste of time. He refuses to do surgery on patients with state insurance. I wouldn't see him again if I were dying. I've never met such a rude doctor in my life and I've worked in healthcare for 20 years.

I recently had a vertebral augmentation done by Dr. Grimaldi. My level of pain before my procedure whenever i stood up for a while was between a 7 and 8. I am two weeks out of the procedure and my level of pain is a 1-2. It doesnt hurt all the time anymore, just whenever i overdue or stand up alot. He said that would go away for after a while. I am so glad I did the procedure and I would do it 10 times over. Dr. Grimaldi is an awesome doctor.

I recently had a back fusion done by Dr. Grimaldi. My level of pain before surgery was one of the worst pains I have ever had. My level of pain after surgery is bearable, except at night. My surgery was the 9th of August and i feel like i am improving. I would recommend him to anyone.

My name is Gary! I recently had an ESI done by Dr. Grimaldi. After just one shot, I feel 70% better. I just had my second one and I am already feeling better. He told me to hold off on the third one until I needed it.

I have been to Dr. Grimaldi's office on two occasions. The first time, I had to wait three hours to see the Doctor. The next occasion I had a scheduled appointment for 10AM and after waiting for an hour I left because there were still patients ahead of me. In my opinion, he allows more patients to be scheduled than he should and it causes long wait times. I truly believe there is a SERIOUS Time Management issue in this Doctors office. His time is valuable but SO IS ALL HIS PATIENTS TIME!!!

I recently had back surgery done by Dr. Grimaldi. My back pain before surgery was a 10+ but had slowed down some. I couldn't get much relief for anything. My level of pain a few weeks out is about a 2. Its not consistent and I am happy I did the surgery.
