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.

West Columbia, SC |
What kind of of doctor blames there patient for not him not being able to finish his procedure and allow his medical assistant to help him with surgery while she has flown blown symptoms of a skin rash all over her face? This staff will seem friendly at first but if you ask too many questions about your procedure you will see the unprofessionalism. They act if they are doing pro bono work. They kept telling me "you're not having surgery in a hospital!!!" Wow the audacity of these people.

Do not go to this doctor if you want stellar performance. He has medical assistants doing the job duties as RN's and LPN's. No wonder his staff is incompetent. They are not qualified.

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

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!
