Dr. Donald Simmons has the following 1 specialty

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

I was a patient of Dr. Simmons 10 years ago, about 2004. He was the ONLY doctor (after having seen so many) that truly understood me. Unfortunately, I lost my insurance back then. I am now insured again and am disappointed to see he's retired. I wish I could tell him how much he helped me and how grateful I am to him.
