Barrett Grimnes, PA-C

Specialty: Orthopedics
After spending almost 8 years in primary care where she saw and treated many nonsurgical orthopedic problems, Barrett Grimnes, PA-C is very excited to participate in the next step of musculoskeletal care with Dr. White.  In addition to assisting with total joint replacements in the operating room, she is really looking forward to focusing on one area of medicine.  Grimnes loves seeing patients of all ages and enjoys continuity of care when she is able to see and help patients over many years.

Grimnes lives in East Blue Hill with her husband and three young children.  She grew up spending summers in the area and now is finding  much fun in sharing the Blue Hill Peninsula with her family on a full time basis.  Grimnes loves to play in the outdoors including sailing, hiking and bike riding and enjoys skiing in the winter.
Grimnes is looking forward to working with the small and close community of Blue Hill.
