*Dr. Tony Simmons is, without doubt, the finest physician I have ever encountered. My quality of life, after seeing another electro-physiologist in Pinehurst for 15 months, was DISMAL. *Dr. Simmons immediately recognized my problem, told me it could be "fixed" and proceeded to do so. That was seven years ago. I seem him periodically for a check up. Thank you *Dr. Simmons.
