Dr Simmons was very pleasant. After a week an assistant called me to pick up my antibiotics prescription for a not-yet provided diagnosis which I found unprofessional. I requested my labs and decided antibiotics were not necessary

Dr. Simmons is very professional and knowledgeable. She listens to my questions patiently, and gives her advice on any concern I have. She talks to patients and makes the visit very pleasant. I used to visit her office in Germantown. Soexcited to find out that she has an office in Greenbelt also, making it very convenient for me to visit just during lunch time from work. The Staff members in both offices are very nice and efficient. They help me with questions in setting up e-portal and answers questions on insurances, lab results, and so on.

Her bedside manner is really good. She asks all the right questions and gets down to the bottom of how you’re feeling. She always recommends alternative options she that you can feel comfortable with the medication you’re taking. The staff coulduse some work on greeting people with a smile. And the wait time isn’t all the desirable. But good MD overall.

The office staff was amazing but unfortunately the doctor was not. After speaking with her regarding my birth control options, she lost the paperwork which delayed me a few weeks which was a huge problem due to my IUD expiring. Thenonce they finally got back to me which was weeks later, they informed me that although my insurance was taken it wouldn’t work given this procedure. Although I understand issues with insurance, there was lost paperwork and if I hadn’t called to check in, I never would’ve known and would’ve been waiting. They also were not upfront about the insurance at my appointment and the doctor gave me two seconds of her time. Do not go here

The doctor answered all questions however her bedside manner was less than pleasant. I felt like the office was just a turn-style with patients. She did not take the time to make me feel welcome as a new patient or establisha doctor-patient relationship. The wait was not very long as I was on time. Also, the setup of the clinic is not conducive for privacy at all. I had to submit a urine sample and was given instructions for the sample and details about the bathroom in the waiting room in front of other patients. Additionally, they asked me about prescriptions and details related to symptoms also in the waiting room. This is unacceptable.

I was 10 minutes late for this appointment but Dr. Simmons was kind enough to still squeeze me in - thankfully! :) Dr. Simmons was happy to answer a few questions I had, was extremely nice and clearly cares about herpatients. I was also happy to hear she has a portal allowing patients to easily make requests and speak with the doctor online. I will be back and would absolutely recommend anyone considering make an appointment!

Very pleasant and great bedside manner. I started seeing Dr. Simmons 10 weeks into pregnancy. During my pregnancy I saw both Dr. Simmons and Dr. Hackney. They both were great. Staff is very nice as well. I had a couple oflong wait times but nothing ridiculous, and its something I kind of expect from time to time visiting any doctor. Dr. Leslie also deliver my son at Holy Cross.

Dr. Simmons is great, no complaints about her, but appointments don't typically start in their office until 9:15 or 9:20 am (so we were told) so we ended up waiting for almost a half hour for our scheduled 9am appt.

I went to Dr Simmons looking for an obstetrician to observe my pregnancy. I was not disappointed - the visit went smoothly and I felt very comfortable during my appointment (that is usually not the case for me at the OB-GYNoffice). Dr Simmons is an attentive professional and a great person. She was very warm and open, and explained everything I wanted to ask. I did not have a feeling that she was trying to end my appointment as soon as possible as a lot of other doctors do, so I and my husband had enough time to think about our questions and to express concerns. I must say that I really liked this doctor and going to come back. However, I wish the office itself had been better organized - they never sent me a link with my test results and I had to call back and wait till the next appointment to get them, so be sure to remind them to do that.

I went for a follow up visit and it took over an hour to see the physician. I wish the office had been more professional when addressing me about my next appointment. I was accused of having made the wrong typeof appointment. When I told the office staff that I made the appt through Zocdoc because they didn't answer their phones for 2 days, instead of apologizing, the staff told me that that couldn't have happened although I had documentation Instead of arguing with them, I chose to make my next appt and leave.

Dr. Simmons was very nice and I like her as a physician, but I waited nearly 1.5 hours before being seen. My appointment was at 3:30 and the doctor didn't come into the room until 4:55, when I was preparing towalk out. The front desk staff wasn't apologetic nor did they give a reason for such a long wait. I liked her, but not enough to waste so much of my time.
