What People Say About Dr. Shaun Simmons, DPM

I live out of state and traveled all the way to Arizona to have Dr. Simmons do my two operations. He is a very compassionate and competent doctor. Other podiatrists plan of treatment was not effective. Dr. Simmons listened to my concerns and recommended the HyProCure Sinus Tarsi stent. It has made a huge difference. I am able to be a lot more active again. It was worth the travel to get the best care. I highly recommend Dr. Simmons to anyone.

I will definitely recommend Dr. Simmons to my friends. He is an excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable, He was easy to talk to and took time to answer all my questions. He is very personable and didn't rush my appointment. I didn't have to wait long to get an appointment or at the office before I was taken back to see him. I love his new location!

I saw Dr. Simmons and he was so kind. He knew exactly what needed to be done to alleviate my pain. He walked me through the procedure in an intelligible manner, that was easy to understand but didn't sound condescending. All of my questions, however dumb they were, were taken seriously and answered to my satisfaction. He was patient and made sure I was comfortable with the procedure and my understanding of it before continuing. His staff was very knowledgable and friendly. I highly recommend him

I needed an ingrown toenail extraction after an Urgent Care failed to extract it successfully. Dr. Simmons had me numbed up in less than 60 seconds with two shots, and then finished out the extractions with permanent acid treatment in less than 10 minutes. The entire appointment was less than 45 minutes. I've had 12-15 extraction visits over the years because my toes are weird. Dr. Simmons is by far the best podiatrist experience I've ever had. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Although a nice guy, I didn't feel like Dr Simmons seemed real confident in his decision making. It felt like he was just taking guesses. My problem did not get resolved, and I stopped going (after about 4 or 5 visits.)

I highly recommend Dr. Simmons. He did surgery on my foot and explained the whole process in detail. He never rushed to get through my appointments. Him and his staff are very pleasant and I would highly recommend him to everyone I know.

I had not been able to walk or bare any weight on my foot for days. After XRays Dr. Simmons came in looked at my foot said "you have RSD/ CRPS but let me check your X-rays"... came back and said X-ray was good so I needed to make an appt with a pain specialist and get shots in my spin right away. Then told me to google it. Then Gave me a boot. Aweful disease....I got an MRI the next day and still have not heard from him about the results even after I've called several times. Highly disappointed.

Dr Simmons is a wonderful , caring Dr. that we feel so fortunate to have found here in AZ. My husband had his surgery in MN and came to AZ not knowing where to go for follow up care. We feel so thankful to find him and be under his supervision.

I had been in excruciating pain for over two weeks when I saw Dr. Simmons. I brought in X-rays from my doctor, but he explained that he needed more precise X-rays with me actually standing on my feet. Once he had data, he attacked my pain in multiple ways--both through application to my insurance for orthodic supports and also through medication for short-term relief. Additionally, we discussed some of my other pain problems and he decided to introduce a long-term medication as well.

It was a very good experience for me And dr. Simmons was pretty awesome. The only thing that was not pleasant was the shots in my toes, but all & all I would sure recommend, him and your practice. Too any one that needs this kind of Dr.

Had a broken toe and called SanTan Foot & Ankle for an appointment. Asked if they took new patients. That was the last thing about me or my injury. All she was interested in was how I was to pay. I gave her my Medicare and BCBS Insurance information. Then she said “I am putting you on hold and I’ll be back in a moment and register you”. Well, I waited over 21 minutes on hold (time still on my cell phone). Finally gave up and hung up my phone. San Tan Foot & Ankle is not concerned about

My wife and I have been treated by Dr. Simmons for over a year and have been very pleased with his dedication to making sure or problems were addressed. My wife is a diabetic of 15 years and has received excellent care with evaluations of her legs and feet along with precautions and preventative measures. We plan to continue our care with Dr. Simmons.

He's very knowledgeable. Very nice. Doesn't want to do other things that are not needed. Would go to Dr Simmons again without any hesitation. Will be glad to recommend him to others.

Been a patient for 6 months. Had severe pain in my left foot. After several months of treatments we finally opted for surgery . I have had many years of dealing with Doctors due to numerous medical issues Including fibromyalgia. Seen some of the best Doc'sincluding ten years with the Mayo Clinic. I would definitely rank him right up there with the best of them. Post surgery he has been very attentive to managing my pain and helping me get through this slow healing process. Wonderful person too!
