Dr. Gary P. Chimes's Ratings
I've worked in healthcare for over 35 years and I'm so impressed with Dr. Chimes. He sincerely wants to focus on my symptoms and take steps to reduce or eradicate them! He talks with me, not at me. He respects the fact that I've lived in this body for a long time so know it pretty well. But, he challenges me to make it better and improve my quality of life. I enjoy talking with him and as I put his recommendations into effect I'm experiencing improvements on a regular basis.
The office staff and his assistant are professional and enthusiastic. I'm seen on time (again - totally impressed) but I'm never rushed out the door.
I recommend Lake WA Sports and Spine to anyone who needs a fresh take on pain management but especially on improving their bodies and their life!
DrChimes is unique in todays medical world, He.s professional, extremely knowledgeable and very caring. On three different visits he has not only listemed, but took action to address and heop alieviate the neck, head and low back pain i was suffering with. My extremely fortunate day when my long term Physical Therapist referred me to Dr Gary Chimes.
Dr. Chimes is the man! Came in with lots of pain in my ankle after beginning training for a marathon and Dr. Chimes diagnosed me with shin splints and a stress fracture in my right ankle. We had x-rays taken and he recommended a nutritionist and physical therapist to get me on track to finish my marathon in 2 months time. After using the nutritionist and physical therapy i was able to complete the full 26.2 mile marathon with no pain in my ankles. Without Dr. Chimes I never would have been able to attempt running the marathon. He even gave me advice on how to stay fit and healthy for my particular body type and we created another plan for me post-race. A truly amazing doctor and truly an amazing facility. I would most definately go back if needed.
Being a patient at LWSS has been an amazing experience for me. I suffered a work related injury to my low back in Mar.2013. My case was made more difficult due to the fact that I had injured my low back years prior resulting in surgery. The insurance company didn't want to provide any tx because of the previous injury. Dr. Chimes has been amazing. I knew he was someone who could see past my previous hx and focus on the present injury after my 1st visit with him. He was able to conduct some diagnostic tests that showed there was a new injury. Dr. Chimes' approach to treating this injury is a well rounded one. He treats the whole person.He has been a great source of encouragement for me as I have made some major lifestyle changes. I have lost 50 lbs and have increased my activity level. Dr. Chimes has performed an injection and referred me to P/T. The combination of lifestyle change and medical intervention has been very positive. Thank you Dr. Chimes and staff at LWSS.
Dr Chimes is arrogant and diagnosed my daughter with disc problems he ordered PT for her after 5 months of PT she was not getting better, we took her to a new Doc. he did a bone scan and immediately found 2 stress fractures. We wasted 6 months and thousands of dollars on the wrong Diagnosis.
I visited his office twice. I was charged about $380 for the first time(office consultant) I was charged for the following items: 1. Office follow up visit 2. ultrasound 3 ultrasound guided xxxx injection 4. ultrasound guided nerve block. (total $1120) for the second time(one hour stay in the office). I can't say it help me a lot. Maybe a little. They claim they provide the highest standard service, though
Dr. Chimes was the first doctor to take time to listen and correctly diagnose my headaches. Due to him I have been able to learn what caused my headaches and modified my behavior to eliminate the crippling pain. Were it not for him, then I would most likely had to change my career. I credit Dr. Chimes for saving my life. He is honestly the most amazing doctor I have ever had the privilege of meeting.
After suffering from post-concussion syndrome for more than three years, I was referred to Dr. Chimes for pain management. He has made the difference in my continuing recovery. In addition to the spinal injections for pain management, Dr. Chimes took the time to "connected the dots" by referring me to other specialists who could help treat my chronic symptoms. He's a "no nonsense"-type person who is sincerely interested in his patients' welfare. I will be forever grateful for his intervention. Pittsburgh's loss is Seattle's gain. I wish there were more doctors like him.
Dr. Chimes did not seemed interested in my wife's problems. We barely saw him as he pawned us off on inexperienced residents. His diagnosis was incorrect and we wasted much time with him. We found him to be arrogant in terms of bed side manner and listening skills
