Meet Nick Grimm, dermatology services
Thu, Jan 31, 2019
It wasn’t your typical career path. Nick Grimm, PA-C, was a finish carpenter who went back to college and discovered his passion was medicine.
“I spent the better part of five years working as a carpenter before I decided to reapply to college. I was at UW-Green Bay and didn’t know what a physician assistant was until my senior year. After that, I just started applying to schools,” Grimm says. “I just decided that medicine was something I was interested in and it just took off.”
Grimm believes he’s found the perfect fit working as a dermatology services provider with Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic. He loves what he does.
“There are very few things we can do in life where you can see an impact right away,” Grimm says. “When you can walk into a room and you know what’s going on in a couple seconds, after someone has already seen multiple people, the gratification is instantaneous.”
As a physician assistant, Grimm wants to make sure each of his patients feels like they matter.
“You have to take every concern they have seriously,” he says. “Every person we meet throughout the day needs and desires to feel important.”
Outside of work, his family is the most important part of Grimm’s life. A husband and father to two children, he tries to spend as much time as he can with them.
“I have a freshman in college right now and a freshman in high school. A lot of time is dedicated to making sure they have what they need,” Grimm says.
They are, he says, a “run-of-the-mill” Midwest family.
“We like our Green Bay Packers, our Wisconsin Badgers, and our Green Bay Phoenix. We love going to sporting events and being outdoors,” Grimm says.
