      Dr. Simmons says

      I would like to provide the best possible surgical and non surgical care for plastic surgery patients.  Medicine is changing rapidly and as doctors become less in control of the care provided, much of the important time we spend with patients is being tested. Plastic surgery is one of the last fields that I think that we have the choice and power to save the time honored patient-physician relationship. Please let me know if there is anything that you think that I can do better while providing care for you or your family.  I promise to provide the best care possible for your family member. 

      Sincerely,

      Oliver P Simmons, MD

      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.

      Finished my residency in plastics at LSU where the DIEP flap was invented.  I learned craniofacial surgery at the #1 hospital in the country- Johns Hopkins Hospital and was quickly asked to take the craniofacial program over to teach fellows for 5 years.
