Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

She has been my doctor since I was 9 years old. I am now 24 and have yet to have a bad experience with Dr. Simmons, whether for physical or mental health. Highly recommend.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Simmons for many years, we have found her to be attentive, responsive and prompt in returning calls. She seems to have a genuine interest in the well being of her patients. I highly recommend her, after having several private doctors in the past and felt that they heard me but didn't listen, I don't find that to be true with Dr. Simmons. She has always addressed my concerns, questions and issues without making me feel like I was less of a person for not knowing the answers.
