My son was very overwhelmed and cried a lot, they handled him extremely well.

We were here for a 2nd opinion and I was thoroughly impressed with the care that my child received as opposed to the other office that we had been to. Dr. Simons was awesome, his PA was thorough, and the 2 nurses that we saw were absolutely unbelievable. They took their time, spoke directly to my son, and we felt very confident in his care.

We waited for 2 hours after the appointment time to be seen. I lost a full day of work because of the delay.

Everyone was very understanding of how nervous he was about the possibility of getting a shot.

He is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. Very happy to have him care for my child.

I'm so sick of this provider being so insensitive. He needs to learn some people skills. This is my child, my world. he treated me like an idiot and was so insensitive of my husband and my concerns. We are not doctors, our training is in a different field, so when we ask questions about what we are concerned about, we would appreciate it if we could have some kind of respect towards us.

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.
