Mr. Durston

Simms, was in a terrible hurry - no hygiene ever thought of. Left William's ear in a worst state than when he came - said he had an infection - we knew this. Pocked it. He ran into office and ran out again. In a terrible hurry. My husband is very miserable and has to seek someone else. SHOCKING (plus the fact the dark haired receptionist is too familiar and left me with "itching" scalp!@w!!

Accurate and Friendly

Fantastic doctor performed surgery to alleviate chronic nose congestion. Months later I feel much better. Only complaint is the waittime, but other than that he's an honest man.

Fantastic doctor

Dr Simms treated my husband for throat cancer. He is one of the most caring people I've ever met. He was kind and compassionate. His staff is just as kind and caring and very aware of the patients time and do not overbook causing long wait times. Dr. Simms also does not rush through your appointment and truly cares about his patients and what they and their families are going through.

I went to see Dr. Simms for a second opinion. He was very nice, he went over all possible options and made sure i had all my questions answered. He was not pushy, he was truly just interested in helping me understand my condition and trying to help me decide what was best for me. He was a very nice man and I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a caring ENT physician.

Great ENT Doctor!

Dr Simms is an excellent ENT doctor. He has seen all three of my girls and has treated them for multiple issues. He has an excellent bedside manner and takes the time to listen and answer my questions. His staff is always helpful and they seem to always get me scheduled in a timely manner. I do and would highly recommend Dr Simms.

One Star

Dr. Simms has a very poor bedside manner and did not want to hear about my daughter's history or the fact that her issue has been an ongoing problem since childhood and that we want to get to the root of the problem. I explained that I have the same issues, as do my siblings, and that I felt it is some sort of drainage issue. He made up his mind right away that her ear blockages were simply from using q-tips incorrectly, when she does not use them (she is now 18 and knows how to clean her ears!). While suctioning her ears, one became very painful (it had been hurting for several days and was inflammed) but he gut gruff and said "I'm not trying to hurt you! It just is loud and feels weird - not painful". She tried to tell him many times that it was VERY painful, but he did not seem to care. I will absolutely NOT go back to this doctor.
