Specialties

Dr. Stephen M Sims has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Good Dr. - Receptionist is unprofessional & rude

I called several times and the phone was not answered and was not forwarded to a machine or service. The day I was scheduled, I arrived early for my appointment but was ignored for 30 minutes, then given papers to fill out. Dr. was pleasing and asked questions. Other staff was much more business like.

Very Disappointed

I was referred to Dr. Sims due to chronic pain from Osteoarthritis and Fibromyalgia. I was glad to see the reviews that he helped several people. My problem is I had the issue of staff not returning my phone calls to schedule an appointment. If the Dr. is that busy it would have been nice to receive a call from the staff at least saying they were not taking any new patients so I could move on instead of waiting and calling to just be ignored. I called several times and you CANNOT get through to anyone. If the Dr. is taking new patients he might want to know he is losing patients due to incompetent staff. I happen to be a very busy person also and in pain all the time, but I manage to get my job done. I now have to take time out of my busy day to call my Dr. and ask for a new referral as I have no desire to try again to get in to see Dr. Sims. Don't waste your time leaving a message they will not return your call.

Sims is a quack Only doctor I've ever seen that charges $10 just to write a prescription for a pain med A prescription that may take all of 15 to 20 Seconds to write Now that's really low class And don't expect any kindness from his head nurse Martha Further more Sims is just plain incompetent
