What People Say About Dr. Cara Simmonds, MD
Reply
They're a bunch of thieves, they have a system to confirm/cancel appointments that conveniently doesn't work when you want to cancell the appointment and charge your account with $90 fee. I don't recomend this office to anyone.

I was a patient of Dr. Simmonds several years ago and was very satisfied with her care, experience and treatment. I returned to her today for a visit and found her to be the same caring, patient doctor that I previously encountered. I am so fortunate to be able to have Dr. Cara Simmonds as my doctor again.
