    The entire office and the Dr. should get on the same page when telling patients health and procedure information. - Dr. Sims was arrogant and questioned my child's pediatrician And Allergy Dr's diagnosis of ear infections over the past 8 month period. - Only checked my child's ears didn't bother to check her nose or throat in that matter- whatever happened to E-N-T? --- Never introduced himself when he walked into the room and didn't even attempt to make a connection with my child.Not going back
