This past winter I was critically ill and Dr. Simmons has stayed in touch almost every day, visiting me in the icu, co-ordinating my specialty appointments and always being there to address my symptoms and concerns. It is not only the depth of her medical knowledge but her compassion that sets her apart. She is truly the best physician who has ever cared for me.
