Amazing results

I had a scheduled exploratory surgery for my shoulder coming up when my Physical Therapist recommended that I postpone my surgery until consulting with Dr. Chimes. Thank God, that I took their advice! Dr. Chimes recognized my problem and performed an in office procedure that corrected my frozen shoulder problem!

Thank you Dr. Chimes!

Dr. Chimes is awesome! I have been struggling with lower back pain for years after my spinal fusion surgery, and not one doctor in 5 years could tell me what the problem was. Dr. Chimes listened carefully and did the proper tests to finally give me a diagnosis, which for anyone who has struggled with chronic pain will know that not knowing what is really wrong is one of the most frustrating things. He preformed all the tests himself, which I really loved. This is the best I have felt in over 5 years! Thank you Dr. Chimes and Lake Washington Sports & Spine!!

Rude and mean

While I clinically he is a good doctor he is so mean and rude. If you don't fit in the mold to answer his questions exactly the way he wants to hear them, he completely writes you off. Seeing a doctor for extreme back pain and leaving after being completely belittled is an abuse of power and just plain mean.

I am a runner and have been recently experiencing knee pain. I was able to get in with Dr. Chimes pretty quickly and he had a very methodical approach to diagnosing the issue by asking a series of questions, watching me run on a treadmill and by examining my knees. I have been prescribed some treatment and I left feeling very satisfied and comfortable that he really knows his stuff. I really feel that he genuinely cared to treat me so I can continue running long distances as I get older. I will definitely go back to him should any other issues arise. The office staff is also very warm and welcoming - overall great experience.

Stellar brilliant diagnostician! Was mis-diagnosed for 1.5 years, until I thankfully finally happened on Dr. Chimes for a third opinion. Be concise and focused when responding to his questions. He might come off as brusque sometimes, but he is brilliant and has a kind heart too. Don't waste your time and money on other physiatrists if you have a back problem.
