very pleased

January 10, 2018

every visit with Dr Simons has been great

January 10, 2018

we waited a very long time to even see the PA. Our appointment was at 1:15 and we arrived a half hour early like requested and we were back in the room before 1. We didn't see anyone else til 2. Then it took the Dr another 15-20 minutes to come in. we were there for over an hour waiting to see the Dr.

We love the provider and staff. We do not like the difficulty in scheduling appointments and this visit we waited about 35 minutes in the room to see the doctor.

very informative and easy to talk to. Explained the procedure in-depth.

Dr Simons is very kind & professional, and is an excellent surgeon. my daughter had a quick and painless recovery from the surgery he performed. we couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend him!

December 11, 2017

I was disappointed in the lack of courtesy or patience the doctor and his staff had with my young son. they never spoke to him directly and seemed to be in a rush to get his surgery scheduled and get us out of there. considering this is a children's hospital office I was disappointed in their care and treatment of my 7 year old.

December 05, 2017

Provider was dismissive of my concerns about my coverage and that the treatment plan he was suggesting could cost me thousands of dollars out of pocket. My child is healthy and the sleep study he recommended is (after talking with another doctor) in no way urgent or imperative given that my child has no health issues - just large tonsils. Given how awful coverage is these days, doctors must be aware and understanding of patient's insurance/financial situations. "Just in case" treatment is, in many cases, affordable and thus should not be recommended. They should also make themselves aware of the potential costs of treatments in their field.

wONDERFUL DOCTOR - WILL GIVE HIM MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

October 04, 2017

It was an amazing visit traveled 2 hours to see him because the doctors around my area did not care or have any concern. was squeezed in last minute so my wait time was kinda long In the exam room which I expected I'd gladly travel 2 hours again for the Excellent service my daughter received
