5 STARS!!! Dr. Mims is super!!! (Wish I could say the same for his office help).
in Austin, TX |
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.
