I recently had hernia repair surgery performed by Dr. Simms, and she has my strong recommendation to anyone in need of surgery. The care she provided from start to finish was outstanding, and offered in a compassionate manner. I have had several significant surgeries over the course of my life; none have offered the outstanding medical care and case management as provided by Dr. Simms

Dr. Sims is a wonderful doctor and took care of my mother like she was family. My mother had hernia surgery and for the time she was in the hospital Dr. Sims and her staff were checking in frequently with us making sure my mom was comfortable. So not only did she bring my mom through a very scary surgery unscathed but continues to care about her and her well being you don't find good doctors like this everyday.

First time I met her I already felt comfortable with her. She is very gentle and caring doctor. I had my lumpectomy surgery and it went very well. She is an angel sent from up above. I will recommend her to everyone. One of the best in her field.

Today, I was informed of a story that was very upsetting. Although there was no interaction with Dr. Sims the office staff did enough to ensure that a patient feels belittled and uncomfortable. Professionalism and respect is important in a large majority of industries. The medical profession should be no different but it seems that these Carrington/Heald College graduates must not receive that as part of their education which lands them in a just above min. wage job but they still feel entitled

Very friendly and matter of fact consultation . Intelligent and articulate . She was on the spot for my procedure and recovery "hernia & mesh repair" While I was being checked for another procedure she was asked to review my condition and gave me a quick consultation and when to follow up on her expertise . Thank you Dr Sims.

I was admitted to the hospital with gallstones and need gallbladder surgery. She came in at 12:00 am and introduced herself, explained the surgery. She has such a sweet personality and felt very comfortable. She is amazing, I would recommend her to everyone.
