The main thing I like about Dr.Simpler is that he listens!!! He cares about how you are actually feeling . He’s never in and out during patient visits. He gives you enough time to talk and he does a full assessment! He makes sure you are satisfied before he leaves the room . He performed surgery on me and I would recommend him to anyone .

I have a very complicated situation to say the least. After seeing several doctors in the area and being turned down by all of them, I read Dr. Simpler's profile that said he would treat his patients as he did his family. Figuring I would be shot down by him as I had by all the rest, I went to see him, and he listened to my theory of what could work due to my other issues. His answer was get the release from your Neuro Surgeon, and we can make it happen.When no one else would touch me, he would.

I went in to the er and was told I was septic and didnt have long. Dr. Simpler and Dr. Delgado did emergency surgery on me. They both were very nice and confident which made me feel at ease. They saved my life. They will be the only doctor's in their field that I will see. I have so much faith in them my daughter seem Dr. Delgado for a knot under her breast and Dr. Delgado sent us to see a surgeon and I would not let her see anyone but Dr. Simpler. Thanks to both of them I am still around to see

Dr. Simpler is very good at explaining all the details of the surgery. He spends ample time with me each visit giving me his recommendations and options. He and his staff are very caring and helpful. I have always been able to reach his nurse by phone with ease.
