  • “I felt Dr. Simons was very thorough. He took his time and made me feel as though he cared. When I told him my symptoms, he listened and asked me questions. It felt good to finally see a doctor who understood that I was really in pain and not have to Zoom in where doctors can’t touch those spots that are hurting. I have been in severe pain for five months and felt Dr. Simons took his time. ”
