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.

He is a very thoughtful and systematic physician who thoroughly discusses your condition with you and takes all steps necessary to treat you as though you were one of his family members with a heart condition.
