Ratings for Dr. Russell Grimwood
I arrived late for my first appointment the staff was friendly and the Dr.Grimwood was not upset. He was quick, thorough and to the point. I mentioned an issue he was quick to reassure me that its probably residual effect fro an accident. Im thankful that he was willing to take me on as a patient.
I have been seeing Dr. Grimwood for a year and a half or so. He is punctual, thorough and always listens. he has taken my concerns seriously and sent me for appropriate tests and for specialist appointments when necessary. I like his bedside manner. He is always pleasant and sometimes quite funny in his quirky dry way, which can put a patient at ease. I am glad to have found him.
Russell Grimwood is an outstanding doctor who lives for his patients. Serious and slightly old-fashioned, he was our family doctor for many years and cared for our children and my wife's parents in old age. In every case he spared nothing. Recently, I returned to Victoria (after 30 years away) with an illness and he took care of me immediately. I am very grateful.
I love Dr. Grimwood. He's awesome. Not the warmest or the fuzziest, but he's incredibly knowledgable and really there for you when you need him. Sort of an old fashioned, no nonsense country doctor! I also don't think I've ever waited more than 15 minutes for him in all the years I've been seeing him as a GP. He also lets you tell him more than on thing at a time. (this shouldn't be the benchmark for a doc but in this day and age, it's rare!) I really worry that he's going to retire and I will have to look for someone else!!!
I had a horrible doctor (Tracy Forsberg in sooke) . Dr Grimwood is wonderful. He listens and understand what pain is and what needs to be done to get things fixed. I finally had my MRI read back to me properly instead of coming up with her own diagnoses even when the report was in front of her and be injected with hundreds of needless needles. The only way to fix my problem is surgery and this is what I was told by a mature educated Doctor and he immediately help me be more comfortable with my pain. God bless you Dr Russell Grimwood!!
Helpful guy. I've had him for years, and he's punctual (if only other people would actually see me when they say thy are going to); informative (but you may have to ask him to define the medical terms); and conscientious. I suspect he may be short with people who aren't willing to live a healthy life.
