Dr. Michael Simpson has consistently shown dedication, skill and compassion to my family members and myself each time we have seen him. In addition, he is very willing to work with our specialists so that all of our providers are "on the same page" in coordinating our healthcare.

I chose Dr Simpson because he was close to where I live. On my first appointment we talked over things and he really listened... that made me continue with him. His staff are always friendly and make you feel at ease. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good doctor that listens.

When we moved to NRV I needed to find a doctor for my family. My husband was 55 & I was 57. We looked up doctors in the area taking new patients. He immediately stood out! Two years later we could not be more pleased. He is knowledgeable and understanding...attentive & quite accurate at diagnosing first a problem & then a solution :) . I have an anxiety disorder as well as arthritis & together we have found a perfect combination of things that help...not only medication but exercise too.
