      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Simpkins' Care Philosophy

      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.

      Dr. Simpkins says...

      I enjoy taking care of patients with urologic cancers, discussing treatment options, and guiding patients through the often difficult decision making process as thoroughly as possible.
