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.
