In 2016, I started to experience discomfort in my right hip. The pain grew worse and my primary physician gave me a cortisone injection which did very little to relieve my pain. My wife, who is a nurse, said I would probably need a hip replacement. As we were walking our dogs around our neighborhood, we asked several of our neighbors, which orthopedic surgeon they recommended. They all said, “Dr. James Grimes'” without hesitation! That was good enough for me. His staff are professional and caring and though they are busy, they all take the time to treat you as a person. The staff at Flagler Hospital is fantastic. Yes, it takes a bit of time to get back on your feet but before to long, the pain starts to subside and you’re going to physical therapy. DON’T SKIP PT! I have heard of several cases where people found them in worse shape because they thought it wasn’t necessary. This past November, Dr. Grimes replaced my other hip! Again, it takes a while to get back to getting around, but, this time was even easier because I knew what to expect. I now walk our 3 dogs around our neighborhood pain free! Thank you Dr. Grimes, Patrick, Sean and staff!
