Review of Dr. Simmons

- in Winter Haven, FL |

Not listening? No, it is failure to ask the right question or to delve. Think about it, someone sets up an appointment to see the doc. Who wants to dole out that money to just answer a question or 2, to have their heart listened to or to get a script or sample? No, the patient expects the professional to do their job. C’mon, do you due diligence doc! Nah, not recommending!

Review of Dr. Simmons

My experience has been awful. I have been medically neglected by this office. I sought help from a "specialist" for a very unpleasant and painful illness. I am left still sick and now very angry and upset. If you are looking for someone to help you and advocate for you, please look elsewhere.

My best friend has been through 3-5 rounds of C diff (October through April), clearly a case of recurring or continuous illness. Never advocated for her (with the insurance company) to have FMT surgery and HIS mistake cancelled the first one. Zero stars would be appropriate. She now has transferred to another doctor.

Review of Dr. Simmons

-Auburndale, FL |

Dr. Simmons Nurse Michelle is extremely rude and abrupt with her patients. She took my BP 120/68 and I told her it is never that low, can you retake it? I have high BP and it never runs below 150. As I was speaking to her she walked out of the room and closed the door without even answering me. I know she fudged my vitals. Called and asked a question about a colonoscopy prep and she could not answer or would not answer my question just kept repeating,"you can have clear liquids" Unbelievable!!!

Review of Dr. Simmons

-Haines City, FL |

I came to this practice with severe gallbladder problems. After recommending several very expensive tests on my stomach, which were negative, Dr. Simmons reluctantly agreed to send me to a surgeon for the gallbladder to be removed. I found Dr. Simmons to be sarcastic and condescending and as far from empathetic as he could be. I am amazed this man is a medical "specialist". His true specialty is making his patients feel silly and stupid for seeking relief from horrible digestive maladies.

Dr Simmons was very kind & extremely patient with us. He clearly explained everything & answered all our questions. His office staff was efficient & very helpful when we had more questions after the fact & returned our calls promptly.

Waited for 2 hours and 15 minutes for him to tell me that he could not treat me for crohn's because my cancer i had in 2013 has complicated my treatment. Suggested I go to IBS specialists. Thought I was going to a specialist. Wrong Had all my info ahead of time and then asked me why I'm there? I have been through a lot in the past three years and have never been treated like I was some kind of lepper.
