About Dr. Grimaldi

Philosophy of care

My overarching goal is to relieve your pain to restore function and improve your quality of life. I apply a comprehensive approach that includes lifestyle modifications, physical therapy, non-opioid medications and interventional procedures. I take time to listen to every patient and develop a treatment plan that is both evidence-based and tailored to specific needs.

Why I entered medicine

Medicine represents a truly amazing cross between science and service. I was drawn to medicine so that I could apply my knowledge to help patients when they need it most. Medicine is also intellectually stimulating as well as constantly evolving and expanding. I love the opportunity to learn from my patients every day while keeping up with the latest advances through medical journals and conferences.

Community involvement

My wife and I are excited to return to the Lehigh Valley and Poconos region. We look forward to growing our family and putting down roots where we both grew up, met and started our life together.

Personal interests

When not at work, I most enjoy spending time with my family. I also have interests in fitness, running, hiking, craft beer, local wine and hunting.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
