I LOVE Dr.Simpson. My entire family has been going to him for years. He spends a lot of time with you and makes sure you know whats going on. His staff is very friendly. I LOVE the family/friendly atmosphere there!!!

Dr Simpson is the greatest ENT I’ve ever seen! He gave careful attention to my issues, spent a lot of time with me, and had great bedside manner! Highly recommend him!
Athens, GA |
Dr. Simpson has a very off-putting manner. He's very rude, and he does not seem to care about his patients aside from their ability to put money in his pocket. I dropped him after a couple of visits because it was obvious that he was not at all interested in addressing my medical issues. He seemed to enjoy insulting me and billing me (over-billing in some instances). I do not recommend this doctor. There are many fine ENT specialists in the same area, so stay away from this one!

Just love Dr and girls working with him. I recommend them highly/DrSimpsoons.
Winder, GA |
I went to Dr. Simpson for hard painful bumps under my chin. He asked me if I had had reflex lately. I said a very minor episode 2 days before. He examined and said I had swollen lymph nodes due to the reflux. He touched my throat and said, "These are your salivary glands." What he touched, the ER doctors said was my thyroid. Exactly one week from seeing him, I was in the ER, twice the swelling and pain, diagnosis, severely infected salivary glands. 3 days lost teaching and making sub plans.

He and his staff have worked well in addressing my issues. I would recommend them to anyone with ENT issues.
