I have been with Kurt Smart Pain management for going on 7 years. And I have to honestly say that Dr Simmons is one of the most compassionate and friendly doctor I have ever seen. Unfortunately I was switched to a different doctor. It kinda hurt me. But the doctor I see now is just as good. Kevin Reese is the most important part of my recovery with my back pain. Leg pain, he is absolutely amazing...

I have spinal stenosis in my L 2 &3, 3 &4 and 4 & 5 back joints. I've never had any treatments like this. Naturally, I was scared of it. When dr. Simmons First examined me he told me exactly what he was going to do and what I would feel before he even touched me. That calms me. Then when I came back and had the procedure he did the same. He explained to me where and when he was going to give me an injection. And before he gave it to me he told me so and touched me there. I hardly felt it! Great!

Dr. Simmons has all of the wonderful qualities that you would expect from a medical professional. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding his craft but it is much more than that. He takes a genuine and sincere vested interest in his patients. He takes the time to thoroughly explain any and all issues that a patient presents to him. I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have been assigned to him when I joined the Smart Pain Management group. He is a true asset to the company.

Dr. Simmons is a great doctor, that is knowledgeable with a great personality and alot of patience! He was quick to diagnose the problems I had, and acted quickly to get me out of pain! I will never change pain centers because I've found Smart Pain in Dundalk to knock the ball out of the park!
