I was reffered by my DR. to see Dr. Simmons, after getting a letter in the mail with my Appt. date and time I put in for time off at my work so I could make the Appt. a few days before my Appt. i recieved a letter in the mail where they was CX my appt. so they sent me a new appt. date and time. I changed my dates off at work and then a few days before this appt they sent me yet another letter saying they was CX this appt also. Now keep in mind my DR. wanted me to see him ASAP i am a 24 year old mother of 2 small children, i keep getting very dizzy light headed, palpations and near syncopy, sometime with syncopy. I can not tell when one of these spells are going to hit they are come all of a suddden, I drive 30 miles each day to work with my 2 children with me. Finally after 3 CX appts. and 2 Months later i get into see him. When i got to my appt. i was in there and out before my acutally schulded appt. time. That was nice but it was them actually keeping the appt after they are made...
this was the worst experience i ever had was treated like i was a problem instead of a patient. he came in the room no how are you anything was very rude i had a mild stroke weak on right side and and all he did sat down and said i was lazy !!! .. and he wanted to do a 3 day eeg this was dec 1 and after repeated calls from us and my own doctors office .. they waited over a month to refer me now i have a huge new deductible and all they tell me is they cant help it they waited so long my doc office said should never take a month to do a refferal not a good experience they set up a appointment and didn't even contact me and knowing cant afford it...stay away if you can
Getting in to see Dr. Simmons for my first visit was difficult and I had to wait several weeks, but once I saw him I understood why. I've never had a doctor who took so much time to explain why certain tests were being ordered and why he suspected the condition that he was testing for. He has made me feel like a partner in my health care through every step of the process.
