Dr. Simmons is a very caring doctor. Upon my first visit I felt very confident I was in good hands. His expertise was very obvious. He was very thorough and did not rush my appointment times. I saw him many times after my glaucoma surgery. He made me feel very comfortable throughout the surgery process. I would highly recommend Dr. Simmons.
Can not imagine getting better care. Truly a wonderful Dr., I have never seen him be quick or uncaring with a patient. He treats everyone with great care and respect. He is so knowledgeable and experienced. We place great trust in his treatment. He explains everything in detail and makes sure you understand his treatment for you. He never rushes you and answers any questions you have. Truly a great Dr.!!!!
