5 out of 5 stars Lip Implants



5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

37 Years Old, 2 Kids, One Natural and One C-section. Desired to Have a Smooth Tummy!

Very sweet and knowledgeable about his craft. Personable...always ask about my family! He did an awesome job and he worked with me and my obstacles or shall I say indecisiveness. Overall, his patience was appreciated. I was very shocked the first time I personally spoke with him on the phone, but then I realized, this is who he is! He's a caring PS!! His staff is so sweet! I just love calling and talking to them! They always return my calls, email me, and answer any questions that I may have!

As a plastic surgery veteran, I initally met Dr. Simmons with high expectations. I am pleased to say that he met them all.

Unlike most of the surgeons that I've met prior, Dr. Simmons is personable, has amazing bed side manner, is passionate about his work, and really cares for his patients. You can't go wrong with this guy! :)
