The most dedicated doctor I have ever had the pleasure to know. Caring an always doing g what is right for his patients . His nurse is the best I have ever been around, love her.
Arden, NC |
Dr. Simpkins is rude and inconsiderate. I would not recommend him to anyone. I would think that if you are a doctor you want to help people, this is not the case with Dr. Simpkins.
