Patient Comments (5)
in The Woodlands, TX |
I was very impressed by his knowledge and communication skills. I also saw how he has a team around him to assist in patient care because his practice is busy. I think some of the negative comments placed here are out of context. He is beyond the level.of care of other sleep doctors. He was able to make a diagnosis missed by many other doctors. Clearly a leader in his field. His sleep center uses methods beyond the standard found in other sleep centers.

My wife has been a patient of Dr. Simmons for 17 years now. She was first diagnosed with Narcolepsy, which explained why she could not stay awake. Dr. Simmons gave her medication for this which helped tremendously. He did sleep studies, and now she has Apnea. Her narcolepsy is not really something which can be cured, and now he treats her as if she only has Sleep Apnea, withdrawing her from the meds that allow her to be awake. This is unacceptable, unprofessional. Cannot recommend him now.

I had gone to other physicians wondering why I always felt tired and hated going to sleep. It wasn't until I was referred to Dr. Simmons that I realized I have had problems since I was a kid. He helped me better understand why my condition has been missed for so many years. After I completed my sleep study, I learned that I have an airway problem that causing my breathing to be disturbed at night. This happens so often that I don't get a good night's sleep. Thanks Dr. Simmons!

Arrogant, rude staff. Witnessed them lying to handicapped patients then laughing about it on multiple occasions. Made me wait 3+ hours each appt with a newborn! Yelled at me with personal info in front of other patients. I had a deviated septum and couldn't use mask they ridiculed and humiliated me. He did care. New doc fixed it.
