Don't know which Dr. Simmons you all saw...but the one I saw spent "literally" 2 minutes with me,,,rushed in and rushed out and have been dealing with the most incompetent/borderline abusive staff. It appears you all were well received and treated. Not our experience!!

Dr. Simmons is an excellent surgeon. After having a mastectomy I couldn't believe how good I felt right out of surgery. I had minimal pain and soreness and did not need any pain medications. I am continuing to heal and feel very blessed to have Dr. Simmons as my surgeon.
