Dr. Gimre is an extraordinary physician. He is patient, respectful, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I felt valued as a patient. I appreciate that he provides science-based care and seems to always be up-to-date on scientific research and studies. The care and concern he provided over many visits never waivered; showing full commitment all the way through the recovery process.

I was nervous about what to expect from this type of medical visit. Dr. Gimre demonstrated the ultimate in medical professionalism. He gave me more than enough time to share my questions and concerns and he spent time explaining my conditions to me in full detail. He is a wonderful teaching doctor who made me feel much more hopeful and secure about my treatment.

Dr. Gimre always takes time to listen and from his responses I know that he truly pays attention to what I say. He always tries to offer an explanation as to why something may be happening the way it is. Because he takes the time to thoroughly investigate and understand the problem (rather than just jumping to conclusions), I feel like so much time is saved over the long run and the recovery process can start sooner as we are on the right track from the get-go.

I have seen other sports medicine doctors at other medical facilities (non-NW Medicine affiliated). When I saw them it seemed as though I spent 15 minutes with them and then they shipped me over to sign up for physical therapy. I was relieved when I met with Dr. Gimre. He spent more time than I expected explaining the issue to me. He also discussed care options and what I would like to do; not forcing PT on me.

Dr. Gimre's clinical skills are nothing short of exceptional. He carefully listened to my history asking pertinent questions and appropriately responded to my answers. The physical exam he performed was very thorough and complete. He explained his findings and diagnostic reasoning in great detail using appropriate scientific terms and mechanical demonstration, all of which I greatly appreciated. He is without question one of the most genuinely kind, thorough, and knowledgeable doctors I have ever encountered.
