Dr Simpson placed a lap band over 5 yrs ago, and it was life changing. He was so caring, and continues to be so supportive, and I know he truly cares about me. He is THE BEST!!!

Sorry to say Dr Simpson took the life of my wife Renee Sanchez in 2009. He punctured a hole in her intestine and never informed us of the problem. So be aware he is not the best doctor for these type of surgeries.

I have had a great experience overall at Dr Simpson's office. The staff have been very kind and helpful. Making appointments has been easy. Wait time is very short. The time from the initial consultation to the surgery was surprisingly short. Dr Simpson is very knowledgeable and has a very good bedside manner. I am down 60lbs and still losing. I definitely recommend Dr Simpson!

Dr Simpson is okay at best but his office is a joke, very rude and they have non clinical staff chiming in when it's unethical. Graham and Irma are receptionists and completely unprofessional, Dr. Simpson will make you wait for an hr but give you 5 mins of his time.

Dr. Simpson is a very caring, friendly gentleman. He does not judge you on your life choices before coming to see him, and will help you towards reaching your weight loss goal. The staff is very friendly, and everyone cares about how well you are doing, and makes you feel welcome.

Not only is the staff absolutely unprofessional, disorganized, rude, and completely inept, my experience with Dr. Simpson was horrible as well. Absolutely the worst experience of my life with the worst staff I have ever encountered.
