sold out to corporate

I have been a patient for many years. Was very happy with this doctor & staff until about a year ago. Terrible experience since physician" sold out" to corporate, he lost his dedicated office staff, Tanya ,Denise, Anita, & Deanna & now the office is a joke. NO ONE returns calls or cares about the patients. it's all about $$$.

post operative infection

after 4 days post op I called the office to speak with Dr Simmons. I was not feeling well after anterior fusion of the cervical 6/7. I was given to the PA-physicians assistant who belittled me on the phone telling me that I was exaggerating my symptoms and I wasnt a doctor literally raising her voice telling me my symptoms were normal. I advised I had two previous fusions where I did not feel ill afterwards. Something is wrong. 2 days later I was rushed into the hospital by ambulance because I could not get out of bed. An severe infection had proliferated systemically. I spent 2 months in the hospital with near death experiences. had severe edema, thrush developed, vital were extremely low. I acquired heart damage and damage to adrenal glands. This PA was negligent in her actions and is a reflection of the physician Dr. Simmons. I asked for Dr. Simmons I got an inexperienced uneducated PA with an ego. I should have filed a complaint with the dept of professions. Before choosing this physician assure that the PA is qualified experienced and if they dotn listen t you go elsewhere

Had my surgery 11 years ago

He is an amazing surgeon. He fixed my spine. No need for pain killers or subsequent surgeries. He runs a tight ship and while his bedside manner is a little brisk, I wasn't there to make friends. I'm sure we both have enough friends. For a surgeon, I want a professional, not a joker. A + Dr. Simmons!
