Ratings for Dr. Robert Grimshaw
My mother was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer. Dr. Grimshaw performed her partial hysterectomy and reported back to us promptly following the surgery to inform us of his findings. While not the best news his delivery was so terrible and unsympathetic that I assumed he was having a long day. However, left with lots of unanswered questions we thought that the appointment we had today would clarify a few of them. Well we were wrong. He was completely blunt and matter of fact. He basically told my mother that she will have 3 more chemo attempts and after that so long. Nice knowing you. My mother has been so positive through this whole process and he told her she has nothing to be positive about (not in those words) but there was no mistaking what he meant. Following his doom and gloom outlook, my mother asked him about natural things she could do going forward after the chemo rounds regarding Alkaline, etc. With that he said that's nonsense and he wouldn't discuss it further and he stormed out of the room. Yes, he stormed out of the room. Our chins are still on the floor. For a professional doctor to be so incredibly rude and to offer a terminal patient nothing to be positive about is completely unprofessional. Unbelievable that there hasn't been more complaints however I believe because others outcomes were not terminal, they had a better encounter. Terrible experience, twice!

Dr Grimshaw did a total hysterectomy for me April 2011 for endometrial cancer and has been following me since that time. He constantly exceeds my expectations with his level of compassion, concern and professionalism. I worked for thirty years at the QE2 as a registered nurse and have seen the best and worst in the health care system...Dr Grimshaw is one of the best.
I had a laparoscopic hysterectomy for uterine cancer September 2012. Dr. Grimshaw was approachable, courteous and able to put me at ease during the consultations and the prior and post surgery follow ups. Mostly,he and his staff treated me, my questions and the actual surgery with total competence.I was able to go home the following day. He and his staff have my utmost respect for their expertise and empathetic treatment. Post surgery even the day after made me feel that there was "nothing to it" regarding pain and mobility.A patient is in good hands with this doctor and staff.
It will be 10 years 2013 since i have had cervical cancer, Dr. Grimshaw was the surgeon that did my surgery. He is a gentle and attentive Surgeon. He is so fast and efficent at doing pap tests after my surgery, i have been going to him since almost ten years now. I will miss him doing these pap tests as i will be going to someone else in 2014 because 10 years will be up. Thank you Dr. Grimshaw for your dedication to your patients. I felt very taken care of while in your care.
He appears to be a good surgeon, but follow-up is extremely poor. He doesn't take time to answer questions. Also, he gives conflicting information to patient (me) and my GP. Family Doctor is having difficulty getting consistent answers as well.
I have s love one who has him on occasion for a oncologist and he has no compassion what so ever doesn't even care at all she doesn't even have the time to ask any questions the time she tries he's flying out the door somewhere else. I had a friend went to him last year and point blankly said to her you may as well go home cause your cooked and laughing about as he went the door (its like this never make fun of someones misfortuntes cause it will bite you in the ASS so smarten up or get the hell of being something that your not
I just had Dr Grimshaw for a hysterectomy and he was so friendly and explained everything out and told me he would make me better. I was very nervous but after meeting him he made me feel so much better and I knew I was in good hands. He came to see me after surgery and explained fully how everything went. I am very thankful to have had him and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs this kind of surgery. He has a very nice personalty.
