the first time we saw dr. grimm it was a very stressful time for us. we were not sure at that time if brain cancer was involved and I don't think we cut him a fair deal. However, over the last visits we have had with him, he has shown to be a very caring, understanding physician. I am very glad he is taking care of my husband and we have no complaints.

Explanations given to my wife, daughter and I were technical yet summarized so non medical care professionals can process and digest. Excellent "bed side" manor.
