Yes, this was the best doctor I could've had when I discovered I had cancer. Not only was he a terrific doctor, his staff was marvelous. I enjoyed going in for my treatments. They treated me like I was one of the family and show did he. He's a very nice man, very professional, and the people that work for him, likewise. They were very professional and I loved everyone of them.

He was very courteous, kind, you were thorough, you listen to what I had to say. You explained everything clearly to me and gave me my options and I don't know anything you could have done better. I was very impressed.

Dr. Simmons was very informative and took plenty of time to answer my questions and went into detail. I didn't seem rushed and his assistant was very nice to us very polite and it was just a real informative and ease appointment even though you're upset about your situation. I highly recommend Dr. Simmons.
