I am very disatisfied and disappointed with my experience with Simmons Plastic Surgery in Lexington, SC. I met Dr Simmons on January 31st, 2019 at my first appointment. He was very informative and had a great bedside manner. I was very impressed with his technology. I really liked him and was excited to schedule my surgery soon. I was hoping for March or April, before the summer. It is now June 4th, 2019. I have yet to receive a response from my more than 10-12 phone calls. The staff is rude and dismissive. On the number of times I have called, I was told there was a computer upgrade and information was lost. I have yet to receive any return calls or even a courtesy response regarding my case. I do not understand why they are not interested in working with me. I have good health insurance and Dr Simmons said he could definitely help me. At this point, I have to start over and find a new doctor who is interested in helping me. Very frustrating and confusng!

Dr Simmons is the only plastic surgeon in SC that I would go to. Triple board certified, a true expert in the field. His current staff is amazing and handles everything with such care. I can't recommend this practice enough - whether it's just injectables or full blown surgery - you want to see the best.

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

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!!!
