So busy ...the faster the more money in his pocket. GB and 3 more surgeries from complication because he thinks the faster the better = 46 days in the hospital. Still having problems. No way, ever will I recommend this doctor to friends and I will die before I allow him to touch me again.

I was 282 at my highest. I'm holding at 150lbs and it's been 11 1/2 years. Dr Simper, gave me my life back..

While not particularly conversative. I feel completely confident that Dr Simper is a well season physician who truly cares about his patients and profession.
