Dr. Gary P. Chimes's Ratings
I recently saw Dr. Chimes for pain in my lower left back after a morning workout. The pain was severe, and the staff were very accommodating in squeezing me in within a couple hours of my call. As always, the front office staff was welcoming and relaxing when I arrived. Dr. Chimes saw me and in short order was able to diagnose my issue (Left SI sprain) and schedule treatment. I left the office feeling well taken care of, and in less pain. It’s important to note that one of my favorite aspects of visiting Dr. Chimes is the time he takes in diagnosing issues. He doesn’t spend 2 minutes with a patient and moves on. He takes his time, asking questions, assessing, explaining, and presenting a reasoned diagnosis. He is a welcome change to doctors who simply push patients through as quickly as possible.
I was initially referred to him through a friend, and I can’t thank that friend enough! I heartily recommend the practice for any sports related injuries.
Dr. Chimes is excellent, he is very through, ask many relevant questions and expend more than 90 minutes with me figuring out my neck and shoulder problem. I like the education aspect of the visit and the fact he was able to provide relief right away. After living many months with a lot of pain I am glad my physical therapist recommend Dr. Chimes.
Dr. Chimes is a fantastic physician and take the time to thoroughly understand your issue. He is thoughtful, and thorough. I appreciate the holistic approach this clinic takes to my health and wellness. I highly recommend Dr. Chimes.
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.
