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.
