Dr. Mims is an outstanding physician, not only in his medical knowledge but also in his care and compassion for the patient, which is equally important to me. I wish I could see him for all medical issues! I highly recommend him.
We love Dr. Mims. He performed my child's surgery and has taken great care of him since. We recommend him highly to others.
Would be nice if he spoke more clearly, looked @ us when talking vs. typed notes. Mumbles.
Was very happy with Dr. Mims and the time he took with me.
As always, Dr. Mims showed wonderful care and concern at my appointment last week. Dr. Mims consistenly shows respect and I trust him completely. Angie goes out of her way to be accommodating to me when scheduling my appointments and is always very courteous ans friendly.
Dr Mims has to be the best provider in ENT! He was amazing and completely fixed me in less than a week after more than a year of feeling awful. I trust him with anyone in my family and he should know he is a wonderful doctor. I'm not sure who his boss is but he should definitely get a huge raise!
Dr. Mims was extremely kind, patient, and informative during our visit.
Always are very satisfied with the care we receive
I am hearing impaired with speech and language delays. Dr. Mims has been my provider since childhood. He is always very professional.
Dr. Mims is FANTASTIC!
spoke to me face to face not while typing on the computer, then while typing his notes he politely asked me to pause due to the difficulty paying full attention while writing notes. that was an exceptional experience- so tired of other providers that are paying half attention during visits
Dr Mims was a God-send to me when I needed immediate care. this was my first visit with him & he treated me as if I were his own family. he was phenomenal!
*Dr. Mims has always been very courteous. I have been bringing my children to him for 14 years. I have and will continue to recommend him to family and friends.
*Dr. Mims is a great person as well as a wonderful doctor. He is the most caring Dr. we have ever met. He has given Charles the BEST care. He is a very compassionate doctor. We love him.
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!!!
