Loved our experience w/*Dr. Mims and the staff @ the office.


Dr. Mims is an excellent physician. He's intelligent, thorough, approachable, and caring. Never mind making the long drive to his office.


Dr. Mims is the best physician I've ever had. I believe he truly cares about my health. He always takes times to answer my questions and is very patient with me. I have recommended him to several others and they have really liked him also.


Dr. Mims is excellent. I have never had a Dr tell me exactly what I would experience from surgery to recovery after getting my stents out. It was great to know exactly what to expect so I could be prepared.


Again, Dr. Mims is fantastic!


exceptional physician. 100% better than other WFUBHC specialists I have previously seen.


Dr. Mims is wonderful! He cares for two other members of our family and we were thrilled when the appointment for Ainslee was able to be made with him, and so soon. He is a great physician and so kind to our kids. We recommend him to anyone who needs an ENT.


After the past few years in f/u with Dr. Mims, we were released back to primary care. He has been great to work with. Always put my daughter at ease and explained things clearly to my wife and me.


I am very grateful for Dr. Mims' care, which has helped control my asthma.


Dr. Mims is an outstanding doctor. I appreciate his expertise, competence, compassion, and gentleness!


I have already told several, he is the go to guy for any head and neck surgery!!


He spent time with me and listened. He was not condescending. He was not in a hurry.


Totally good experience!


He spent more time on the computer charting his notes than looking @ us or speaking with us. Also when "_____" did not seem to know how to work device & did not have he right size.


He seemed very knowledgeable.


dr. mims is the absolute best! I drive to clemmons because if his excellent care& knowledge of my issues. he takes time & always listens to my concerns. I would refer anyone w/ sinus issues to him !


excellent...thank you!


As stated previously, Dr. Mims always shows utmost care and concern for me. I trust he always has my best interests in mind.


dr mims is one of my favorite doctors. I love his chair-side manner.


the experience was very good


We left with peace of mind and answers to what kind of virus my daughter had when her primary care doctor wasn't able to diagnosis her with mono.
