Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Simpkins "Patients with cancer have many fears and concerns that I enjoy addressing with them and their families. I find that a comprehensive approach and a thorough discussion of treatment options helps people feel more comfortable with their decisions, and I appreciate the partnership that I have with patients and their families in caring for their urologic issues."

He answers all questions and provides advice about alternatives and recommendations.

The best qualified Urological Oncologist in Western North Carolina by far. He restored my normal lifestyle after other doctors would (or could) not.
in Clyde, NC |
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.
