How is this doctor still in practice? The staff is horrible! Be ready for psychological visits because he will send you to his buddy $$ before doing surgery, but you will actually need the visits after surgery! I was mentally traumatized by the doc and staff. Doc told me he was the only one in NE Ga who could do the surgery.. LIE! I still owe over $2,000.00 because his staff is not educated on how to file insurance and will expect you to do their job! Horror stories are now arising from others!

Dr simonton is rude, arrogant and cares little about the patients or their schedule. He will do nothing to accommodate people on a work schedule. On my appointment I wasted a vacation day and he talked to me less than 5 mins. He saw I didn't approve and said "bummer "

Dr. Simonton and his staff are second to none.

Very professional. I felt Dr. Simonton was honest and straightforward. Also they do an excellent job of what to expect and what to expect for the after care. My son had 4 wisdom teeth removed.

I brought my daughter here to have her wisdom teeth extracted. She was very nervous, but at the consultation, Dr. Simonton allowed her to voice her concerns. He wrote her a prescription to help her relax to take before we got to the office for the day of her surgery. He also told her he could put her to sleep so she would be most comfortable. She felt relieved after talking to him. The day of the surgery we were only there for less than an hour. Thank you for taking good care of my daughter

Being a resident of Rabun Co. (58 miles away), I stopped into Dr. Simonton's office for the purpose of setting up an appt. for consultation of a wisdom tooth extraction. The receptionist suggested that they could see me in the p.m. When I saw Dr. Simonton, he suggested that I was willing to wait, and be worked in, he could extract the wisdom tooth the same afternoon. He worked me in quickly. I appreciate Dr. Simonton and his entire staff for their consideration of my time. I recommend him.
