Dr. Mims-Gillum is a board certified physician in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology with over 15 years of clinical experience. She continues to provide comprehensive care for females of all ages. Recognizing that Sexual Health and Emotional Health are an important part of Comprehensive Health Care, she has expanded her role Beyond Doctoring.

Philosophy
I see my role as a provider as Beyond Doctoring. I am dedicated to being a trusted and trustworthy physician, a reliable resource, an advocate for Women's Health, and a knowledgeable and compassionate Sexuality and Intimacy Educator and Counselor for individuals and couples. Each client deserves a provider who is skilled proactive, open, sincere, and nonjudgmental.
