Specialties

Dr. Mark H Grimm has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

WARNING-DR GRIMM IS VERBALLY ABUSIVE-NON PROFESSINAL.......The list could go on and on. He entered the room accusing me of untruths and refused to help me. I was sick!He left the room, said he was going to lunch.i followed him out.He theartened to call security.My shortness of breathe & crying & embarassment & the threat made me go back to the room gather my purse etc and leave crying excessively. The staff was not comforting they said nothing.& I had to pay for the appt. I left sicker than when I came in. Dr Grimm is arrogant to the extreme in his voice and stature. He does not care to examine you or listen at all. I do not know how he has gotten away with practicing this way.he whispers to his nurses in front of you kind of snickers and looks your way and shakes his head in disgust. It is humiliating. All these sentences should end in !! I am hoping someone at Mercy will read this and put cameras in the rooms and maybe Dr. Grimm would stop his tortuous ways. When I have trouble after hours and he is n call - I will choose to go to urgent care or emergency room.he so hateful on the phone, it makes you cry. FINAL STATEMENT -your have been warned to the best of my memory and knowledge. Please think twice befor making an appt with Dr. Grimm.

Daughter of patient

Within 5 minutes of the first (and only) visit with Dr. Grimm, he had my father diagnosed with lung cancer and almost NO CHANCE of survival. This was all based solely on a CT scan, no biopsy, nothing else. We knew something was in the left lung that should not be there and that there was a good chance it was cancer, but he gave him absolutely NO HOPE! As anyone struggling with any formidable diagnosis knows, your mental state has an enormous affect on the outcome! We were both extremely uncomfortable with him and had no confidence in him. I called my father's referring physician and demanded a new pulmonologist. We got a new doctor who was much more encouraging and told us not to be alarmed until he was positive of exactly what we were dealing with, and that whatever it was, it would be treated and dealt with. Long story short, he does have cancer which we had unfortunately thought all along, but things are not nearly as bleak as we were led to believe. PLEASE! If you have been to him, GET A SECOND OPINION! If you are scheduled to see him...DON'T! I think he is harmful and I would not trust him with a stranger I met on the street let alone my father or any loved one!

He doesn't seem to care

My blood pressure was dangerously high. He actually said the words "oh well, not my organ!" I believe he's dangerous. Don't risk it.

DONT go here!!

His overall performance was TERRIBLE! I was sick and badly needed his help. We traveled over 100 miles to see him. But He was rude, in a hurry, talked down to us and was disresectful.I was misdiagnosed and another pulmonoligist got me right in, accurately diagnosed me, even tho my symptoms NEVER changed. Dr Grimm never even listened to my lungs! Total disappointment and PLEASE, don't take yourself or your loved ones to see him! His quality of care is NOT good!
