Dr. Mims is an awesome doctor. I recommended my 6 year old to be seen by him.
Dr. Mims listened to my issues and came up with a good plan to provide the care I need.
*Dr. Mims is, by far the best provider at WFU - we feel at ease with him and we trust his medical expertise. He deserved an award!!!
he was great
Dr. Mims took a lot of time with me and examined my face and nose for a reoccurring sinus infection. He was very helpful and concerned that I had already taken 3 rounds of antibiotics and was sick again. Feeling better now!
Care provider - maybe a little bland, but he seems knowledgeable and very profesional which is most important as a care provider.
He is by far one of the best doctors i have ever seen explained everything, showed concern for my concerns, ran the necessary tests to be certain of my issue.
took his time with us. very good!
Dr. Mims is an excellent doctor. He has helped me tremendously with my sinuses following a very long and difficult path of trying to find relief from chronic sinus infections and a failed surgery. He is honest and straight forward with his recommendations. I appreciate his caring and compassionate nature and excellent patient care skills. I would highly recommend Dr. Mims to others and cannot thank him enough for his help.
Dr.Mims is an outstanding physician in every way possible!
Dr. Mims has been my ENT doctor for years. I like and trust his care.
My kids love Dr Mims. He's always good with them.
*Dr. Mims is wonderful! My daughter was nervous at first, but he took time to speak to her, and he used the otoscope on her doll first to show her that it wouldn't hurt! As a man I really appreciate this.
*Dr. Mims can be very condescending at times about concerns you have. He blames everything on anxiety and shuffles me away like I'm a mental patient.
