Dr. Wrensford Simmonds's Ratings
When I found out I was expecting, my husband asked me to switch doctors from the physician my family and I had had for decades to Dr. Simmonds. Though I had never had a problem with my own doctor, I knew the switch was important to my husband so I conceded. I could not have made a better decision. From the very first visit, Dr. Simmonds made me feel comfortable and at ease. His easy charm, sharp wit, and understanding nature endeared me to him as it has with most of his patients. He saw me through my pregnancy, recommended a fantastic OBGYN, and then welcomed our daughter with open arms, treating her more like a treasured gift than a patient. Though you must often wait to see him, you KNOW he will give you his undivided attention and not try to push you out the door. He is proactive and listens to you when you make suggestions regarding your care. My family and I couldn't be happier to have him as our physician, and we wish him health, happiness and hopefully a long career.

Dr. Simmonds is not a "good" but an "excellent" doctor, primarily because he is a "listener" and (like an excellent mechanic) is able to diagnose. Recently, he has been able to diagnose a problem missed by several other doctors, including two specialists. I am also enamoured by the fact that he continues to attend conferences, etc. and keep abreast of advances in the medical field. He also appears not to be challenged by other consultations and is not hesitant to make referrals when he deems them necessary. I am also giving him a "thumbs up" for sharing his skills and knowledge by mentoring students in his field. My hope is that he continues to take good care of his health so that he will be able to continue to help others for a long time in the future. His "wait" in the office is well worth it as he gives you his full attention when it's your turn. He does not, as my other doctor does, restrict you to a maximum of 2 issues.

This doctor is a shining example of the perfect family physician. He is a good listener, patient, proactive, and respectful. I have been a pateint for over 10 years, and would not trade him for his weigh in platinum.

I've been seeing Dr.Simmonds since I was 14 years old. Today I am 30, have moved about an hour away, and still continue to see Dr. Simmonds. He truly cares about your well being both physically and emotionally. Although as most reviews have said, the wait can be a little long, that is only because he is taking the time he needs with each patient while still making the effort to see everyone that needs to be seen.

My mom was under his care at Toronto East General. She had diabetes, and there was an accident with her foot at the hospital. She complained about the pain and was told it was gout...this went on for months, her toes were turning black. After I complained it was "discovered" it was gangrene. She had above her knee amputated..she died a couple of weeks later because she was too weak to have surgery. If she would have been treated "right away" she might have had a chance and would be alive today. And now Dr. Simmonds won't even own up to his lack of care, and is blaming her! He should be ashamed!!!!!

I have had a number of Doctors in the four Provinces where I lived and worked. Fortunately they were all very good! None however could come close to Dr Simmonds. In addition to being an outstanding Physician, his people skills are second to none! He takes whatever time is necessary to attend to each patient and does so in a very down to earth and friendly manner. You will see comments about wait time. Once you have had a session with Dr Simmonds, you will understand why and not give it a second thought! My wife and I will be forever grateful to Dr Simmonds. (Just so you know he is human and therefore not perfect.....his taste in NFL football teams leaves something to be desired !!) George O. Kitchener

I have been a patient of Dr. Simmonds for probably over 20 years. I don't tend to see him unless it's absolutely necessary, something we tend to disagree about, but he has always been someone I knew I could turn too when needed. Even if it's just to talk. Now, you will have to be a patient person.... The wait to see him will be long. However once after waiting 80 minutes to see him, and after talking for 20 minutes about something that was upsetting me, he asked me if I would agree to be understanding the next time I had to wait to see him? We both knew that was never going to happen. Seriously, Dr Simmonds is the only person I have ever met I actually believe is worth the wait to visit. Even if it's just to chat to feel better about yourself. Don't tell I said that mind you.

I moved away from Toronto several years ago and to this very day I miss Dr. Simmonds kindness, compassion and expertise. I measure all doctor's against him and sadly they all fall short. There is none better. While it is true the wait can be long he is worth waiting for. He has a prodigious memory, remembers small details about you, your family, and your health. He also has a wonderful sense of humour and a contageous smile. God has blessed this man, his patients are very lucky indeed.
