Dr. Scott Simms, Denton, TX

When our Doctor retired many years ago, he told us that Dr. Simms would be taking over his practice as soon as he completed his military service. We waited for him to set up his practice; and we couldn't be happier --- he has been our primary doctor for many years now. We LOVE him, Danielle, and others in his office.😍

Dr. Scott Simms

After years of having to deal with Doctors in the big cities - it is refreshing to vist an office where there is no rush rush hurry up and wait for the Doctor. Personally I have never waited more than five minutes in the waiting room or exam room. The office atmosphere is much like a home (because it is one of the more prestigious homes of its time). I have always felt my well being is important to each member of the staff and the Doctor.
