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
Debbie - I regret to hear this and would like the opportunity to speak with you further. Can you please email me your contact information at katieborders@texashealth.org Thank you, Katie

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.
in Plano, TX |
Dr Simms is kind, patient, and knowledgable. He never seems hurried and has a wonderful bedside manner.
in Denton, TX |
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.
