This was my first visit with Dr. Simmons and I believe I have found my OB\GYN. My visit was a consultation or referral from my primary to discuss lab findings. Dr. Simmons was very detailed and addressed all my questions. Shewas very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable. Her staff was just as friendly and accommodating. I'm looking forward to my follow up visit.

It was an ok visit. Having to switch doctors due to unforeseen circumstances I was pretty cautious about who I selected. I really selected her based on her hospital affiliations, however, she was ok. I did not really feel as thoughshe was too engaged in me as a patient. I felt rushed a little bit but other than that she was nice. Im interested to see how the other visits will go.

The doctor was nice, but I was told I couldn't get my preferred birth control method due to health problems. I have yet to be called back about another method and I'm almost out of my pills. So I'm really worriedabout that. She did take some time to actually look into the medications I was taking and see if anything was interacting and seemed concerned when she found something, so I was surprised by that. She seems very knowledgeable and I will be following up with her. I was pleased with her even if I didn't get the birth control I wanted.

Dr. Simmons was wonderful! (Exceedingly warm and affable.) She answered all of my questions regarding the change in protocol for pap smears versus yearly Well Woman exams in a patient and compassionate manner. She reassured me that shift inprocedure was indeed based on scientific research (in which she wholeheartedly agreed) and not budgetary concerns. Finally, since I do not have a PCP, she provided me with a list of referrals that she trusts. I would recommend Dr. Simmons to any woman looking for great care without hesitation.

Front desk receptionist had a winter coat on and another was eating her lunch for the world to see. She didnt put it away when I came in. The medical assistant asked how much I weighed but there was a scaleright to me. I waited 45 min. Before seeing the doc.. Did a consultation and prescribed. No exam. There was a urine sample in the bathroom and no empty sample cup in there.

As a new patient, Dr. Simmons didn't make me feel badly for not having done a mammogram in a number of years. And in the course of the appointment, I told her I am a nurse, and she treated me likeany other patient, answering questions I had, regardless of my professional background. This will be a very good practice for me.

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 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.

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

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.
