I was kept informed why I was waiting so long for him. I was ok with the wait. He was with another patient. He is a great doctor

My appointment with the doctor went very well. He listened, answered questions-even questions I didn't know I had. I feel very comfortable with Dr Simons.

I needed a hernia repaired and the doctors communicated with each other and we are going to schedule my weight loss surgery and my hernia repair back to back. It's nice that my doctors work as a team and put my health first.

Fabulous visit. Everyone was awesome. A great improvement from all my other Cooper visits this year! I was actually thinking of switching providers to another health care system due to poor service I received. Dr Simon was unreal. He knew my history going back 20 years. I have a very complicated surgical history and he knew it all. So very impressed. I felt totally safe entering into a health care relationship with him.

Office and medical staff pleasant and professional. The doctor took his time listening and gave me all the information I need in regards to my health issue. He answered all my questions and I did not feel rushed in any way. I feel well prepared going forward with my treatment.
