03/04/14 4 4 5 5 I love Dr. Grimm. I was his patient for 11 years. In june 2013, he played an important lead role in my care. He is very knowledgeable, compassionate and caring. Being an DO is not that different from an MD, they each receive a quality education. Dr. Grimm has impressive post graduate experience. He is a past President of the Riverside County Medical Association and Board member of the Desert Regional Medical Center I would not hesitate to recommend him. Even when his practice was extremely busy before MDVIP he would spend 30 minimum win me during an office visit. Now, if you are lucky enough to become his patient he has even more time to spend with patients. His holistic approach to medical care goes beyond just the medical issues as he cares about the patient as a person. If I wasn't unemployed and I was able to afford the cost of the VIP fee then I would still be his patient. DER in Palm Springs  Respond

06/10/10 4 4 3 3 Don't set your expectations too high with Dr. Grimm. He's caring; he listens. He is more knowledgeable than many in Palm Springs. He fast, popular and crowded. He comes up with some brilliant solutions, but he also falters. If you like a doctor who spends a lot of time with you, go elsewhere. You will be disappointed.
