I saw Dr. Mims on a few occasions as I was in need of a Port Placement to receive IV Medications. During one incident, I continued to complain of pain when the nurses tried to access the port. Not only did I have pain, but it was incredibly difficult to access. It was only because my regular MD insisted the port be removed by Dr. Mims, was it found that I had a 16 OUNCE clot of blood sitting in the pocket of the port. Another instance was a temporary line was placed in my neck. Placement was more painful than it should have been. Dr. Mims did not believe me. It was eventually found the line actually punctured a muscle, which was the reason for the pain. In a nutshell, Dr. Mims does not believe what he is being told. It seems the problem has to be proven to him before he believes anything. There are other qualified MDs in the practice. Seek them out for advice and treatment. I do NOT recommend Dr. Mims.
