Dr. Simmons seemed to bond very well with my child and put him at ease. She answered all questions and did not seem rushed. She seemed very knowledgeable about kids needs.

Doctor Simmons was amazing. She listened, cares, and was so thorough. She made me feel confident and hopeful for some answers, even if just to eliminate some possibilities. Highly recommend

Dr. Simmons is always very empathetic and thorough with her explanations of the situation and decisions. She is a wonderful doctor to work with and highly value her expertise and recommendations when considering our options. It is clear she is very busy and has many important patients because her schedule is very full, but when she is in the room with us it feels like we are her top priority and she genuinely cares for our children and their wellbeing.
