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.

Everyone was very nice and made the appointment go well for my son

January 23, 2017

I found the doctor to be very informative. He took our concerns as parents seriously.

January 06, 2017

I was very pleased with our visit to see the doctor. It was well worth the 4 hour drive (one way) we had.

December 27, 2016

we felt unsure after the appointment but Dr Simons must have sensed our concerns because he called us at home that evening to talk more and see if we had any concerns.

December 07, 2016

I wish that Dr. Simons would slow down a bit when discussing options and care for the child. at times it is hard to keep up and follow what he is saying.
