Dr. Simper is an extremely thorough, caring physician. During my recent visit, he thoroughly reviewed my history, records, recent test results, and conducted a line of questioning to identify what may be causing my recent issues. After I left the appointment, he continued to research and consult with another physician. His communication was excellent and continued to research. On a Friday afternoon, he rushed to get a diagnostics test quickly scheduled for that evening. After the tests, he further researched with other physicians and contacted me during his evening to provide feedback. He provides exceptional care and strongly recommend him to other patients.

Dr. Simper was on time and spent over and hour and ten minutes explaining to me my existing conditions and the tests necessary to get a clearer picture of my health. I appreciated Dr. Simper's interest on providing a complete Picture of my Health and what the tests would clarify.

I have been a patient of Dr. Simper for many years and have never met anyone who has more compassion and concern for his patients. He takes his time to answer your questions and explain what his happening with your heart. Dr. Simper explains the test that he has ordered and what he recommends to keep you healthy. I have complete trust in Dr. Simper and would recommend him to anyone who needs to see a cardiologist.

Dr. Simper was really great and helpful. His examination was very thorough and he walked me through every step asking great questions and doing a very comprehensive workup. The best cardiology visit I'd ever had.

This doctor is condescending and he really isn't sure of his own plan on care for and questions it repeatedly. His steps in care management are somewhat questinable.

Dr. Simper is the most compassionate, caring physician that I have ever experienced, he is very dedicated to his profession and caring to his patients at most. I have personal experience about his professionalism and he always go above and beyond what a patient expects from the doctor. I am his patient from last few years, and never get disappointed, he is always listening to me with full attention, and give the answers to all my questions. He called several times me at home once he received the result(s) of my tests that he prescribes for me and provide me the detail analysis of the test results. I highly recommend Dr. Simper to all if they are looking for expert and caring cardiologist, I even don’t hesitate to say he is the great assets to his hospital.

Dr. Simper is the most patronizing person, let alone a doctor, that I've ever met. A complete waste of time. I would leave a minus star if it was available.

My husband and I were quite impressed with Dr. Simper, and recommend him very highly! He explained everything thoroughly, was careful to be sure we understood everything, and was very logical. He was careful to put together a complete history, from me the patient, another cardiac specialist, several x-ray techs, a gastroenterologist, another hospital, and another cardiology unit. He double checked as he input information, resulting in more accurate data. Excellent!

Dr. Simper is the best!! I could not agree more with the other two reviewers. It was a novel experience for me to sit across from a doctor with my rather lengthy list of questions, and have him read them all, make a few comments on the paper and then sit beside me to discuss each one. Kind, compassionate... indeed he is. Much as I do not like the diagnosis of heart disease, I am so very grateful to have such a knowledgeable, caring physician on my side. Thank you Dr. Simper.

Dr. Simper is the most compassionate, caring physician that I have ever experienced. He was very thorough, did not rush me and spoke in layman's terms so I understood exactly what he was saying. He made me feel very comfortable and not only listened to my concerns but had answers!! If you are in need of a cardiologist I strongly recommend him.
