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...

Blythewood, SC |
I've wanting a procedure (Butt implants) done for years by a local doctor in SC. I found Dr. Simmons online, made a few cosultation visits w/ him and he was very confident and knowledge about the procedure (I didnt find too many local surgeons who were). My results are amazing! I'm pleased to have met these guys! They very nice and welcoming! They really know how to make you feel good about yourself!

Customer service here was terrible. I called in to pay for a procedure and the medical assistant kept forwarding to voice mail. After several attempts she reluctantly took my payment by huffing and puffing in my ear. I caught the same medical assistant gossiping about me in the hallway the day of the surgery. I have received better treatment at McDonalds. Maybe if Oliver Simmons would invest in real nurses his staff would not be overwhelmed

Dr. Simmons and his staff are a class act. Dr. Simmons is great! They are all very professional, caring and efficient. The office is beautiful. It is very clean, new and modern. Peyton, is the licensed esthetician and is awesome at what she does. She is very knowledgeable and offers great explanation of the procedures that she is doing. She also helps format a plan for future services that are specified to my needs as well as recommends the appropriate skin care regimen. I will be back

in Bethune, SC |
Dr. Simmons was the reconstructive surgeon on a team of doctors that treated my 18 year old son for a gunshot wound to the foot in January 2016. He was FANTASTIC!! I could not have asked for a more skilled, professional, courteous, caring surgeon!! Dr. Simmons was able to repair my son's foot so well that today (10/23/16) the wound is almost invisible!!! My son also said to add that Dr Simmons had a great bedside manner and is a very funny guy! We both feel fortunate that he was on the team!!!
Thank you so much for the kind words. It was my pleasure to help him get back to school and his golf game! I have moved to a solo practice in Lexington. I would be happy to see him again if he needs anything!
