Dr Mims is a great doctor. I have been taking my children there for over 10 years now. He has always provided our family with the best care and very detailed and informative about my children's syndrome. I highly recommend this Doctor. His Office Manager Priscilla R has been with him since I started attending his office. She is amazing, kind, sweet, caring, helpful and very professional. Thank you to her for all you do for his patient's and all your hard work.

First to all that have written bad reviews, you should be ashamed of yourselves. May God bless you and be with you in your less than Godly views. Now to Dr. Mims. He is one of the greatest and most eduated doctors i have ever had the pleasure to meet. Note I have work in the medical fields with over 100s of doctors. He is patient and loving to all his patients. He takes the time to explain the whole process and put everyone at ease. He receives high marks from other patients I have spoken with. Please pay no attention to the poor reviews.

The doctor is excellent. He's staff is the worst I've ever had to deal with in 11 years I've had my severely handicap daughter. His office staff has kept my daughter from getting her third eye operation she desperately needed. She refused to set an appointment due to a power game she has over the scheduled book. I wanted to see this doctor three hours in his very tiny waiting room with my daughter with a trach, Feeding tube, oxygen tank, suction machine, Feeding pump. Her little legs were dark blue and icy cold due to poor circulation from sitting on a wheelchair without movement for so many hours. I saw doctor at my local supermarket and explained our situations. Sadly he sided with that office employee and never finished what he started and my daughters eyes were never fixed correctly. I pray this woman knows how much suffering she has caused by her darkest. Also, I will never understand how he ( the doctor) could allow such control over his practice.

Highly Reccomended

I have been going to Dr,Mims from the time I was just 10 mo.s old, a long, long time ago (over 25 yr.s!), and can tell you I have never met a more competent, caring and conscientious Doctor. He has always gone out of his way to explain things clearly and answer any questions you might have. I would recommend him whole heatedly. A side note- He does prioritize seeing his post-op and youngest patients first, so you might have a bit of a wait if you are an older patient just in for a check up, but the quality of care is worth it. :)

Rude and Disrespectful

Dr Mims is very rude and disrespectful!!! He does not know how to talk to parents in the appropriate way, and when you ask him questioning he cuts you off and gets upset and starts yelling because you have questioned him and his work/office policies. The first few visits with him were ok besides him talking about the war and things that were not related to my child eyes. But the last visit was horrible! His staff do not know what they are doing, they called me several times about a referral that they already had on file. Overall he got my son eyes straighten but its all about respect when your wanting to keep patients. Dr Mims is the type of doctor that feels like he knows it all and you either do what he says or screw your children. Instead of listening to the concerned parent. Not a good doctor professional wise but a great doctor correcting a childs vision.
