Patient Comments (3)
in Omaha, NE |
Doctor Simons is the best ENT specialist that I have had in my whole life. He has cleaned out the dead skin that builds up on my ear drum many times now. This dead skin builds up because of radiation therapy that I have had on my ear. He is always so careful and gentle. Because of this I trust him much more than any other ENT doctor that I have ever had. I highly recommend him.

My daughter, who has had ear issues for years but never could find a reason, saw Dr Simons to have her ears cleaned. He immediately identified she had bacterial infections in both ears, put her on meds, and also said she had skin irritation in her canals. This infection had been going on for years and never diagnosed by other "specialists" in town. She has been on meds and feels much better. Have full confidence in Dr Simons. He is patient and explains thoroughly.
Thank you for the kind words!
