It’s the little things that matter to most people and you have done so many little things for me that make me know you care about your patients. I remember before going into surgery I looked up and saw your smile and in your eyes I felt the confidence of God in my soul knowing that all would be well....! Your staff was great & one special nurse at Community North was a reflection of your expertise. Thank you for caring about little old me!!!

I had previously left an excellent review for this “doctor”, but in the past 4 weeks following my surgery he performed, I have developed some issues and he & his office still will not return my phone calls. I have made multiple attempts to contact him, in various ways, with no response. In fact, I left a message and was called back and cursed out by the woman on the other end, wasn’t able to speak, and hung up on. I’ll be contacting a medical malpractice attorney.

Usually I don't go online and leave reviews like this, but Dr. Mimms went above and beyond for me. I saw him for gallbladder removal surgery, and he and his staff were amazing right from the start. The procedure itself went incredibly smoothly and recovery time was very short. On my follow up appointment, Dr. Mimms showed concern for some mental health issues I was having, and even went so far as to recommend a therapist for me, which went way beyond his call of duty. Just a great guy.
