Dr. Simms is an amazing surgeon hands down. His bedside manners are impeccable as well. I am giving four stars because his assistant Jen is just horrendous. It’s such a shame that she works with someone as brilliant as Dr. Simms. This broad is just downright rude, have zero customer service, zero empathy for patients. She plainly has no business being in the health care industry. Another reason for four stars is for always running late. Now with Covid, they make you wait outside the office. So you’re looking at 15-25 minutes wait, give or take.

I went Dr Simms because I needed a second opinion. He reassured me that what I was told by another dr was wrong, and that my eardrum would heal after another dr did something to me that caused me to lose my hearing. I felt like he knew what he was talking about

Was referred by a good friend. Have had sinus troubles for years. The procedure was handled professionally and the results are great. The AOC organization seems to be a little disorganized but the on site office and surgey staff were great.

Dr. David Simms IS THE BEST! I have been with him over 20 years. I was born without Eustachian tubes and the first time I met Doctor Simms and his staff, I knew I was in good hands. He had to put adult tubes and me and boy did I notice a huge difference. They are all professional and cater to your needs. I've not once had an issue with them.
