This was our first meeting. It was a refereal for my daughter from her family MD. I really liked the provider and the staff.

The appointment was fine. The doctor was quiet (I had to ask him to repeat information a few time) and laid back, so this put us at ease. However, he also didn't seem to have read my daughter's chart. I expected him to have more details about her condition, and not rely mainly on what I told him -- what if I misunderstand or misrepresented? Tubes are routine procedures for doctors and nurses, but not for us. There was acknowledgement of our concern, but it seemed like part of the job. It helped that he shared information about caring for his own children and his worries pertaining to that. I felt comfortable, but not relieved when I left the appointment. I think sometimes parents don't know what to ask...especially when an experience is new. None of this is complaining, but hopefully helpful information to hear. I expect that our experience will be just fine, and surveys don't often capture the middle/upper middle of the spectrum where very poor to very good is the scale.

Dr. Simons was very personable and was willing to take my concerns and respond to them even when he was sceptical about them. when I ended up being correct about there being a medical issue with my child he was very respectful and gracious in admitting that he had been sceptical but gave her the test anyway to confirm or rule out her diagnosis. After the diagnosis was made he was great at explaining treatment options for my child.

they was a lot of waiting and with a toddler it made the 3hour visit feel much longer

Dr Simons treated me with respect and understood my concerns and reasoning for getting a second opinion through him about surgery for my child. I want what's best for my child and I truly felt he wanted that too.
