Dr. Mims is one of the very few Dr's left on this planet that is the most amazing and compassionate man I ever had the honor to be a patient of. He was my pain management doctor in Austin Texas. Until one of the worst Dr on the planet that he joined in his practice...Dr Vivek mahendru of pain specialist of Austin. Tx. If you have Dr. Mims as your Dr. You have the very best of the best for a Dr. He genuinely cares about you,has a heart of gold. I'm dying now thanks to mahendru dismissal.

Dr. Timothy Mims is the best pain management doctor, I've found. He treated me in Austin, TX, before he relocated. I was very pleased with his care. He listens intently, he communicates clearly and he brings a very high level of skill and compassion to help solve the problems. He never gives up, even on the most complex root causes. His compassion and his positive attitude always made me feel that he treated my body, mind, spirit and emotions. Extremely intelligent. Very sad to lose him.

Dr Mims was my doctor here in Amarillo. I sure hated to lose him as my doctor but I will let you know right now he is a wonderful doctor compassionate ,considerate, caring,I had four or five procedures done by him turned out wonderful. If you want to put your medical problems in good hands go see Dr Mims. His office staff at Advanced Pain Care are great.
