I saw Dr. Simmang to get a second opinion and was SO impressed by hiw he spoke to me, explained things to me and with his overall genuine care for me that I set up an appointment for him to do my surgery. His office staff were so kind and helpful! Thank you Lisa for finding a place to get me in for surgery quick. Thank you Nicole for being kind and taking the time to explain some medical questions and concerns I had, you eased my mind!

Dr. Simmang is a wonderful doctor who really cares about and loves his patients. I had a colorectal surgery done by him. I was naturally very scared. However, Dr. Simmang's explanations with pros and cons of the surgery and his patient listening and resolution of our concerns made the whole thing very easy for me. I will recommend Dr. Simmang wholeheartedly and without any reservation to anyone who is looking for an excellent colorectal surgeon. ----- Anu Arya
