As a competitive dancer I spend more than 24 hours each week training. Last April and again in November, I had an ankle and later on a knee injury. I was really scared since my competition season was about to begin. You took the time and explained everything to me and helped my understand my injury as well as how you were going to make it better. We decided not to operate and with the help of a lot of physical therapy my ankle and knee were healed. I’m happy to say that this past July I attended the Hall of Fame National Dance Competition and my number won First Place Overall in the Teen Division.
Thank you so much!!!

Dr. James Grimes,
I wanted to send you this brief e-mail with a picture showing me Skiing on a Slalom Ski in Summer Haven Florida, after my right side hip replacement. The picture demonstrates the strength, balance, and flexibility that has been restored since you did my surgery. I am almost 60 years old, was walking the next day, back to work full time at 3 weeks, back to Bikram Yoga, Surfing, and Spinning at 9 weeks, and Water Skiing at 14 weeks, which I started when I was 12 years old.
My life is completely back to normal exercising 6 days a week, with no pain or adverse conditions. My current activity level and positive mental attitude are a direct result of your state of the art, leading edge Anterior surgery techniques.
I had never been in a hospital, or broken a bone before, so deciding surgery was a scary decision.
The staff at Orthopaedics Associates of St. Augustine, Physical Therapy with Ryan Hemelt, and Flagler Hospital were very Professional, Caring, and have allowed me to return to my original life.
Thank you very much – Paul H.
Please forward this message/photo to Dr. Kasraeian at the CR210 office, with our thanks for working with our daughter Caroline to heal her sprained foot in March-
We were up against a tight deadline for healing… as she had an international rhythmic gymnastics meet to compete in just 4 weeks after spraining her foot
He prescribed the right amount of rest – and physical therapy — So not only was she able to compete in the meet… but she beat out 24 other girls in her level to win
First Place All-Around!
Thanks Dr. Kasraeian!
Thank you for giving me my life back. I’ve been recommending you to everyone I know of!
Always Grateful to You! Valerie M.
Dear Dr. Hort,
March 9th was the one year anniversary of my surgical procedure which you performed in order to correct the work of a previous surgeon was well as to end the constant pain I had been enduring for many years.
I am happy to report that the surgery was a wonderful success. I am pain free, and back to a very active life style including walking, dancing, exercising…all the things I was unable to do for so many years.
All my best – Joan L.
Dear Dr. Kasraeian,
Just a note to let you know how very impressed my husband and I are with your bedside manner, the time you spent tirelessly on researching a resolution to my hip fracture complicated by my metastasized breast cancer in the bones, networking me with the best surgeon possible, and your professionalism.
Surgery was very successful and the post-op follow up very positive. The bone pathology report indicated no cancer activity. We encourage you to continue your professionalism.
Sincerely – Roberta & Fred W.
Dear Dr. Volk,
I just want to say “Thank You” for giving me so much of my life back. I am doing things now that I haven’t been able to do in years!
Thank you – Aletris E.
Just a little something to thank you for all that you have done for me. You sincerely helped me in every possible way to rid the pain I had endured from my accident. I gratefully appreciate having had you for my doctor.
Many thanks – Sheila E.
My name is Madison and I am a NCAA Division II All American swimmer at the University of Tampa. I started competitive swimming for the Sea Devils at the Willie Galimore Center when I was 10 and continued as a Yellow Jacket for St. Augustine High School. I was injury free until my junior year when I was diagnosed with a shoulder impingement. Training changes, physical therapy, and cortisone shots allowed me to finish my freshman year of college and make it to Nationals.
That summer due to continued pain I went to see Dr. Grimes at Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine, where I was diagnosed with a rotator cuff and labrum tear necessitating surgery. Post operatively I was unable to use my arm swimming for the next 5 months; I developed my legs and did land training. I eventually got back swimming with a vengeance, achieving personal bests in the 50, 100, 200 freestyle and accepting an invitation to swim at Nationals.
My success is multi-factional but directly the result of the surgical skill of Dr. Grimes and his staff at Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine, Ryan Hemelt in physical therapy, and personal hard work.
My husband and I want to thank you and your lovely team in the care I received in my operation. You did such a wonderful job on my foot. I am so grateful that you were my surgeon. Thank you for having me as a patient.
Thank you all – Donna B.
