Dr. Gimre is the smartest, most knowledgable, and best listener and communicator that I have ever known, hands down. Over the decades, in addition to the average practitioners, I have known some very good and truly excellent doctors, dentists, PA's and PT's. The best of these people leave me feeling healthier and feeling better about my life in general - and not just the specific health issue. Dr. Gimre is at this highest level in technical knowledge, empathy, and exceptional listening and communication skills, and also treating me extraordinary courtesy and respect. I have the highest confidence in his medical knowledge and diagnoses.

Dr. Gimre is thorough and explains all options available in terms you can understand. He will make a recommendation and tell you why he prefers a certain procedure or medication. He is patient and kind. He truly cares about his patients and gives you the time you need to explain your problem. I never feel rushed or like I'm being brushed off. I have recommended Dr Gimre to my daughter and she has seen him also. Dr. Gimres' assistant, Jeff, was great! He is friendly and efficient. I only waited about 3 minutes and was called back to the room. Everything moved along quickly. I had to wait for a short time for Jeff to return. He checked in with me to apologize for the delay (there was barely a delay) and that he would be in shortly.
