I would highly recommended Dr. Simons. He was very compassionate and kind with myself and my daughter. Extremely thorough and explained everything in a manner that was easy to understand.

August 28, 2019

Dr. Simons and staff were very knowledgable and kind.

August 21, 2019

Very nice and intelligent provider, just seemed like the appointment was rushed (not just the provider but also the check in nurse). However, I would recommend the provider and would have my child see the provider again.

This doctor did not have test results availble for out 11am appointment. However, he knew we were anxious about them so when he saw that they came in later in the day he called us with results. He called us at 730pm on his time, while in between flights while headed to a meeting in France. Dr. Simons went way above and beyond and for that we are greatful!

the nurse and PA were phenomenal. the doctor himself was reassuring and informative but didn't seem to interact directly with our daughter just talked over her to us.

June 19, 2019

I wish the doctor explained to my child what he was doing and talked to him like the nurses did. I also did not think he took into account what I was saying about his sleeping pattern.

He is a Great Doctor. Great bed side manner!!
