Patient Comments (4)

This doctor failed to diagnose kidney disease in a 35 year old man until it was Stage 4. Now facing dialysis and a transplant due to his inability to diagnose. If you decide to use this doctor, educate yourself. Cannot depend on him for help

Dr. Simms office is quick and easy to access. He has now added a physician's assistant, Dr. Laura Gonzalez, who I see as much as I do him.

Simms is unlikely to be able to provide care for you if you have anything more than a cold or the flu. If you have any kind of medical condition requiring him to study up on it in order to order the correct type of tests and/or to provide you with the best referral, you can forget about it.
