I had an appointment with Dr Simpson because of ringing in the ears. The first thing that he told me was that there was nothing they could do for this condition. I asked him why they let me make an appointment for this condition if there was nothing they could do. He didn't have an answer for that and pushed me off to another person who gave me a hearing test that I didn't need. I had an appointment for ringing in the ears and didn't need a hearing test.

He is the only doctor I know that can prescribe the right meds to get rid of any sinusitis that I have. Also, would highly recommend him for sinus surgery. He is gentle and doesn't use much packing.
