Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grimsley "My personal goal is to relieve the discomfort of injury or disease and prevent long-term disability and deformity. To this end, I offer my patients a spectrum of high-quality, value-laden orthopaedic services. These services are provided in a timely manner with compassion, thoroughness, and cost accountability to the patient, the referring physician, and the purchaser of health care. I have received extensive training in the fields of orthopaedic treatment and surgery, having received my medical training at the nationally respected Bellevue Hospital and New York University Medical Centers. I also undertook an additional year of specialized fellowship training with Dr. Anthony Hedley, a world-renowned pioneer in the field of adult reconstruction.

I have been in practice in Jacksonville since 1995, and look forward to helping you resolve your orthopaedic problems."

Patient Comments (2)
Jacksonville, FL |
Judges heavily on perceived value of age and wear on joints and not factual evidence of MRI's and patient history of activity. Came up with zero solutions and discounted the radiologists claim of Bursitis. JOI website lists him as having knowledge of hip, but refers to other Doctors for treatment. Unsure of what he actually can do. Sought treatment for 2 issues. Left without either area being treated, currently searching for different Doctor.

Very knowledgeable. Very good at answering questions and explaining medical terms and procedures.
Kathie, thanks very much for your kind words. My staff and I believe it's imperative that patients are fully informed, so we do our best to address all questions and concerns. Dr. G.
