I came to Dr Simmons on the recommendation from a friend and a referral from my primary care physician. He solved a heart issue for me that my former electrophysiologist was unable to solve. His care saved me much anguish and I am doing fine six years later. Woo Hoo Dr Simmons!!!!

I couldn't have asked for a better provider, *Dr. Simmons & his staff was the best.

2/9/2016

This MD has an exceptionally heavy patient load and he wants to spend time with each pt. so is late for his appts. (not his fault).

1/3/2016

Dr Simmons over pass my expectation as my care provider

1/1/2016

Dr. Simmons is truly one of the best physicians I have ever seen, whether in primary care or any specialty. He was by far the most informed and up to date on my first visit and was accurate in his overall knowledge and assessment of my medical conditions and medical history to that point. It was clear to me that he had taken the time to review all of the information sent to him from my prior physician's offices. That instilled confidence as to his genuine concern for me AND the quality of care that I would receive from him. P.S. I am a retired P.A. having graduated from the Bowman Gray Physician Assistant Program, so I am speaking from personal experience from and with a multitude of physicians in all areas of specialty when I refer to Dr. Simmon's qualities as a medical provider.
