What People Say About Dr. David Simckes, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
This journey with Dr. Simckes and his staff was sooo different from our experience at another fertility center. Dr. Simckes has a way of putting us at ease. You can tell he loves what he does. He figured out what was actually causing out fertility issues, when others could not! He is there for EVERY SINGLE appointment and his nurses are always available to answer questions or concerns! They are so sweet and knowledgeable. I’m so glad we made the decision to seek another opinion with Dr. Simckes

If you're having trouble getting pregnant, Dr. Simckes can get it DONE! He gave my Wife and I his advice on the best plan forward. We anticipated that it may take several attempts, we planned & prepared. I like Dr. Simckes because he is NOT about just making money! He answered emailed questions after hours & my wife had text access to his staff. We followed his advice and he delivered success on our first attempt! We are BLESSED it worked and THANKFUL we are on our journey to becoming parents!

In 2010, I found Dr. Simckes on my 3rd visit to a Fertility Specialist...1st visit with a Doc at MERCY left my Hubby & I a bit confused...then a 2nd visit with a WASH-U Doc left me financially hopeless! Then I followed-up on a billboard I kept driving past: "Dreaming of a Baby?...BELIEVE! ...Conceive!". After 8-years of planning, Doc patiently waited & worked with me. Now we're living our DREAM with a 1st attempt FET-pregnancy at 46-years old! Thanks Dr. Simckes for loving care & giving us HOPE!

I found Dr. Simckes through my surrogate who saw his ad for $7k IVF on Facebook. I immediately thought there was a catch, because here in Texas it would have cost me double. I was SO SHOCKED to find out that it was completely legit. In fact, I read SO many reviews and ALMOST didn’t book with him because the negative ones scared I tested them. They did NOT disappoint!! Don’t let any bad reviews scare you. This doctor is nothing short of AMAZING. Red carpet service all the way!

The best! I had a successful IVF and healthy baby thanks to Dr. Simckes. I cannot express how very thankful my husband and I are for the blessing of our baby. It wasn’t easy (IVF never is), but we felt like we had an entire team behind us. I gave birth at 40 to a completely healthy, beautiful baby. Bringing our baby to meet our fertility team was an experience I’ll never forget.

Dr. Simckes is the man! He gave my 40 year old wife and I our healthy baby girl. At first, I was very skeptical especially when our first attempt wasn’t successful. We decided to give it one more try and IT WORKED! I still can’t believe it. My wife and I have our brand new perfect baby girl, Ruby Brown. We owe it all to Dr. Simckes and his amazing staff.

We had been to doctors close that wouldn't do anything to help with my husbands fertility issue, and weren't doing enough for me. Dr. Simckes answered all questions got us in fast and did exactly what he said he would. We stayed at the hotel next door. A coordinator was on call to us 24/7. It worked out great!

After 2 failed IVF attempts, with Dr.Peter Ahelring and Dr. Silber, a good friend of mines referred me to Dr. Simckes. It was the best decision I have made in my life because I am currently 7 weeks pregnant today. I am 25 years old and honestly had given up. Dr. Simckes gave me so much hope and reassured me the entire time that everything was going to be just fine. If you want to get pregnant Dr.Simckes is the doctor for you. If he can do it for me he can make it happen for you.

I wish I would have read and listened to advice to NOT use him. I was constantly told my only option was IVF. After two IVF rounds and two miscarriages. He is scatterbrained and staff is so rude and unsympathetic. People think he is so up front with them and down to earth but looking back is was all to make that IVF sale. He gives you statistics on successful ivf's , but not on how many were actual live births.
