I called because I had recent back surgery and he was the on call doctor. This was the worst experience I've had with a doctor he was rude and very short. I highly recommend NOT seeing this doctor. POOR
in Katy, TX |
Dr. Simpson implanted the Medtronic DBS in me in October 2011 and replaced the battery in 2014. He and his staff did wonderful work , and I recommend him to any Parkinson's patient considering DBS.
Poor bedside manner. Leaves too much to interns. Doesn't care about the best interest of the patient.
