Dr. Simonds is a great surgeon! I had been suffering from hemorrhoids for years and fissures for a couple of months when I visited her. She was very patient with me. She did not jump into performing a surgery right away. She spent months to treat my problems without a surgery (I think this shows how much she cares about her patients). I ended up having a surgery. She did a great job (no infections etc.). I feel very lucky that our paths crossed and I am fully recovered. I highly recommend her!

Had a pilonidal cyst surgery through her...got a lot worse and now need another surgery almost a year later. Very inconsiderate and does things without telling you.

Dr. Simonds was very accommodating, squeezing me into her schedule to a hernia repair so I could get back to my active life ASAP. She was very communicative and worked with me to avoid opiates as I am a recovering heroin addict. Both her team and the anaesthesiologist spoke to me individually to help ensure that I would not be even offered opiates or given to them under anaesthesia Dr. Simonds even was able to check her calendar on her phone before the surgery to squeeze me in for a post op.

I was quite anxious about my upcoming colon surgery. I met with Dr. Simonds and she was able to explain in detail what was involved, what to expect, and what not to worry about. She even drew me a map of what she expected to find, and how she was going to fix it. Surgery went very well. Dr. Simonds visited me often during my recovery. For major surgery, Dr. Simonds made it all seem easy.

I was not happy with my experience with Dr Simonds. I had to take my child there who was in extreme pain to begin with. A procedure was needed to be done on my child which caused even more pain. I do not think enough was done to prevent the amount of pain that was experienced. Nor do i think that Dr.Simonds showed very much compassion or empathy for the pain my child was experiencing. Not all people have the same amount of tolerance of pain and this should always be considered with every patient
