Dr. Oliver P. Simmons, MD 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
