Ratings for Dr. Merl W. Simmons
Very unhappy with Dr Simmons. We took our children out of his care after 1.5 years. Dr Simmons did not care to address my concerns or keep my children as his patients. Office staff unpleasant, unaccommodating, significant wait times prior to appointment and while in exam room.
I have been using him for 5 years for my daughter, he was there when she was born and the first to hold her, he has left his golf game to come to the practice to see her when she had a cough, and he ALWAYS calls me back if something happens! I now live 89 miles away from him, but I still continue to use him, I will never change!! He is helpful and knows his stuff! Fantastic doctor for kids!!
Dr. Simmons is great. My husband and I love him and so does my daughter. As first time parents, he has been great at calming my husband and I down during those first tough sicknesses. He has given us good recommendations and advice. And, his PA Karol is great too!
As far as medical experience he is very good, but very vague on answers and not big on giving out advice. As a first time mom I needed more reasurance and advice, but he didn't seem very concerned. I always found that my friends were getting a lot more information and advice from their doctors.
