5 out of 5 stars Weight Loss

LOVE THE NEW ME !! Thanks Dr Simpson !! - Scottsdale, AZ

After meeting with Dr Simpson and his staff I know beyond a doubt this is the place for me. Dr Simpson is a very caring doctor , he took all the time I needed and answered all my questions and helped me make the decision that was right for me , he is AMAZING , his patients in his lobby were so complementary of Dr Simpson and his staff. Once I was called back to do my introduction with his staff and Dr Simpson , I now know why Dr Simpson is so popular in the weigh loss field. I could not have picked a better practice , doctor , and location. I can not say enough about what it has meant to me to have such a caring supportive doctor. Thank you Dr Simpson for being my doc !

5 out of 5 stars Lap Band

Love my Lap Band! Have Kept my Weight off for Years Now!

Dr. Terry Simpson and his staff are amazing. I felt total confidence in them, and I love my Lap Band! Dr. Simpson was there before for consultations, after for fills, every step of the way. I was never shoved off to someone else. He also has a very calm demeanor, and is clear and concise. I always felt like I was safe and in good hands. The biggest part is when you are a "Simpson" Patient, he is always available to answer questions on his blogs or on Social Media or by email. He is very involved with his patients! :)

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired... - Scottsdale, AZ

A surgeon who cooks AND has a dry wit? How did I get so lucky?! I'm so grateful to have found Dr. Simpson. He literally changed my life with Lap Band surgery. He patiently answered all of my questions and never treats you as a number. He did my consult, he did my surgery, and he is the one you meet with for your appointments. He is the ONLY surgeon I would recommend. Thank you Dr. Simpson!

Complete Disaster. Scottsdale, AZ

Not only is the staff absolutely unprofessional, disorganized, rude, and completely inept, my experience with Dr. Simpson was horrible as well. I don't even know where to start. After having surgery done with another surgeon I realized just how horrible my experience was with Dr. Simpson. Not only was his bedside manner terrible he left me in absolute agony for months following my surgery. Now...

Hoping to Be Sleeved - Scottsdale, AZ
