Pueblo, CO |
I am a patient and have been for many years. The last couple of times I was there I was treated rudely, he didn't care and wouldn't listen. I couldn't even get results of tests from him because he had no time.
Baytown, TX |
I was refered to this doctor for possible RA. after the 1st visit I was left feeling unimportant and disregarded.there was no help or even the slightest concern. now after my 2nd visit not only do i feel the same but ive been looked at as if I'm a liar and I can't get service now. I now have to go find a new one and I don't understand why. No one should feel like I feel after any visit with a health care professional which is why I highly recommend NOT seeing this doctor

I could never reccomend this Dr. Reception staff is rude & uncaring. The Dr. is rude, in two appointments he has spent less than 10 minutes with me. Has never touched me to eamine me. Refused to even acknowledge my daughter or discuss my case with her. Changes meds without even reviewing lab work. Avoid this Dr. If possible, very dissapointed after waiting 6 months for appointment.

Dr. Timms is an incredible diagnostician. He is not an extrovert. The high quality of medical care received outweighs personality traits. He is a very gifted doctor! I know my health is in good hands. The nursing staff is amazing, both professionally and personally. The front desk staff isn't always friendly, but they are precise in getting their jobs done. I am happy to travel over a mountain pass to see this provider!

Not very helpful. Was told I have RA and osteoarthritis throughout my body and his response was we can fit you with knee braces and a back brace if you have t h at much pain. Absolutely no bed side manner.
in Wiley, CO |
I found Dr. Timms to be , though gruff, a very good doctor and informative. He was able to diagnose me with fibromyalgia and not RA as my doctors where I live told me. I would recommend him to anyone needing treatment.
New York, NY |
Dr. Timms is an excellent Doctor. Both myself and spouse are treated by him and his staff. He is very knowledgeable and was able to correctly diagnose what other doctors have missed. His office treats all rheumatology patients in the Pueblo area and he is the only rheumatologist in the Pueblo area; however his care by him and his staff is great.
