When my son was readmitted into the hospital, I felt that Dr. Grimmer was the only person besides myself that knew and cared about my sons special needs. He came to the rescue in a very difficult situation and I will always trust his judgment.UofU Patient September 10, 2013
I appreciated Dr. Grimmer's explanation of risks/benefits to bronchoscopy and his clear recommendations on when to pursue this procedure. I also appreciated his willingness to explain his thought process in medical terms (once I explained that I am also a medical professional). He spent plenty of time discussing the issue and addressing my questions. I left feeling reassured and confident in his recommendations.UofU Patient May 16, 2013
Extremely happy with Dr. Grimmer. I am glad he will be performing surgery on our child.UofU Patient April 29, 2013
Very nice. Understood our frustrations with previous providers not listening to us.UofU Patient April 22, 2013
felt like our child's issue was treated lightly by him and that we were wasting his time by even being there. he did nothing to help usUofU Patient April 15, 2013
I would gladly recommend this clinic to anyone needing their help!UofU Patient February 25, 2013
Felt like he really listened to me. Valued my opinion.UofU Patient February 05, 2013
Dr. Grimmer is great at explaining my daughter's medical needs, her options, and acts like we are the only patient he has to take care of that day.UofU Patient December 27, 2012
For how hard we had to work to get to our appointment (we came from out of town), and to schedule all aspects of the appointment because we had to include a sleep study at the same time, I wish we would have been told that there was a possibility that my son wouldn't be scoped. There was a lot of stress getting ready for the appointment and I didn't leave with full peace of mind that we did everything we needed to to make sure he was okay. I'm okay that the procedure wasn't done if it wasn't necessary but it would have been nice to know that there was a possibility that it wasn't going to be done because most of our stress and planning for the whole day had been centered on getting it done... If that makes sense.UofU Patient November 19, 2012
Dr. Grimmer took his time with us. He didn't talk fast or treat us like a # like other doctor's often do. He was very patient and made sure all my questions were answered before I left. He even let me look into my baby's ear so I could see what her tubes looked like. When the exam was over, instead of quickly leaving the room and going on to the next patient he waited for me to buckle my baby into the stroller and he opened two different doors for me. I was really impressed with his kindness and caring! I will be recommending him to all my friends for sure!UofU Patient October 09, 2012
Awesome experience with Dr. Grimmer! He was there for the initial exam, surgery and follow-up it was nice to have the consistency and he was very calming and informative.UofU Patient August 27, 2012
Dr Grimmer is great, I would refer anyone to him. It took very good care of my son and answered all of our questionsUofU Patient July 07, 2012
Dr Grimmer spent a lot of time with us and never acted rushed or seemed preoccupied. He acted like Chloe was his most important patient, answered all our questions, and put her fears to rest. He is a wonderful dr with a fabulous bedside manner, especiallyUofU Patient April 25, 2012
This was a decent experience. I would have liked a little more discussion about my child's health, specifically options (pros and cons of surgery), where I could address additional concerns and questions after reading literature given me. I left not really sure what I should do next.UofU Patient April 12, 2012
He didn't seem to care about my concerns. Made me feel like I shouldn't be there.UofU Patient April 11, 2012
I wish we would have had time to ask more questions before our doctor left to talk with his next appointment.UofU Patient April 04, 2012
Dr. Grimmer seemed uninterested in the situation. I realize he didn't have a lot to do with my child's sinus infection, but it is his specialty and we were looking to him for validation (or not) of our efforts to help our son.UofU Patient February 29, 2012
Dr. Grimmer has been very good to listen to us and let us know what our beset course of action would be.UofU Patient February 15, 2012
Great clinic.UofU Patient February 04, 2012
There was only one nurse that was a little up tight. She was a older lady with long blonde hair. Maybe we thought this because the others were outstanding! There was a tall skinny gentleman, I think his name was Ken, he was amazing! He really conected and explained things to my daughter without freaking her out!
