As expected, it was delightful! Greeted by a Physician Asst. continually smiling. Then smiling Dr.Simmons opened the door, as he always does, to briefly say he would be seeing me momentarily. Then another lovely girl took me down the hall for my xrays, following which I walked slowly back, with cane, when another doctor going by, looked at me and said "There'll be no running in the hall!" I so appreciated this humor!! Back in the room, Dr.Simmons assured me that my 13-year-old artificial

Having heard from others who were very happy with “new knees” provided by Dr. Simmons, my husband got one done by Dr. Simmons a couple years ago and said he didn’t need any pain meds after, since he no longer had pain. It is now my turn, so having just set up a time for surgery, I expect to join the many other very satisfied patients of this master.

My visit was a positive and productive appointment. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. Dr Simmons spent time explaining my condition, and what my options for effective treatment and relief should be. His treatment was effective. I plan to visit him as needed in the future.

I was very satisfied with my first visit with Dr. Simmons. He has a good 'bedside' manner. Listened to me about my injury and discussed the reason and follow-up steps for his preliminary diagnosis. His office staff was courteous and helpful.

My wife and I both think Dr. Simmons an ace. For me he's done 2 hips which now are perfect. He'll do my wife's left knee in January and she couldn't feel more secure that he's the man for the job. We wholeheartedly recommend Chet 'the Jet' Simmons. Great surgeon, great person.

I chose Dr. Simmons after experiencing his care for my spouse over a period of years that culminated with the ultimate replacement of both her knees. He performed replacement surgery on both my knees, one at a time, 6 months apart, after it became apparent that non-replacement alternatives did not last long and thus not a solution. As with most of the other reviewers, I found Dr. Simmons to be a caring and skillful professional. A year later, my knees and improved mobility attest to this as well

Dr. Chet Simmons is a courteous, caring, consummate professional. I found him when my hip pain on both sides was limiting my ability to function and live fully. His reported outcomes in total hip at several "health quality" sources were outstanding and matched in full by the experience of meeting, discussing and operating my right hip. I was back at my desk in 5 days and moving well in 3 weeks time. My only regret is that i waited so long to do it.

Dr. Simmons listens intently to the condition, symptoms and my ( the patients) desires. He was very through and suggested a treatment path, which has been successful. You can tell he really cares about you as a patient and treating your condition.
