7/21/2016

Greatest doctor ever with his nurse *Teresa -

6/22/2016

due to this physician's natural gift in attending to my general health as well as the specific health concern, he is above average in delivering excellent care; he communicates his interest in me so well that we do not need a lot of time in the office.

6/21/2016

MY PROVIDER IS EXCELLENT - HIS COMMUNICATION SKILLS ARE ABOVE - HE CLEARLY IS ONE IF THE BEST CARTIOLIGISTS I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH!

6/1/2016

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.

5/24/2016

5/10/2016

I had a very good experience with *Dr. Simmons. A great dr. "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.

12/24/2015

No Bad experiences ever.

12/20/2015

Dr. Tony Simmons is the best care provider I could every have He has take very good care of me for many years. Years I may not have had if not for him and The good Lord.

12/16/2015

One of the best
