Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice doctor and staff, pleasant visit.
Great OB office!
Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable team and on-time appointments!
Dr Simmons and Hackney are fantastic! I delivered my last baby with them and continue to see them for regular checkups as well. I've already recommended them to my girlfriends.
Dr. Simmons is amazing. Very personable and willing to take time to answer any and all questions. She is wonderful! She is also extremely knowledgeable. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Simmons.
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 could use some work on greeting people with a smile. And the wait time isn’t all the desirable. But good MD overall.
The office was very professional, pleasant, courteous, and informative. My wait time was probably less than 10min after completing new patient forms. Dr Simmons was Great! I felt comfortable, relaxed and a personal relationship with my physician. I highly recommend Dr Simmons!!
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. Then once 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 establish a 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.
She’s very knowledgeable and has a sincere desire to educate patients on their bodies and issues.
Never received my lab results despite several calls to the clinic. Was never followed up with birth control option although interest was conveyed during my visit. Will not visit or trust my body with them again.
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 her patients. 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!
Although the office was late, in opening (about 5 mins), the staff was very nice and quick. Dr. Simmons was great and help calm my nerves. would recommend and come again. The appointment itself was quick and seamless.
She was so nice! Very informative and encouraging about my options for treatment and how they would effect me short term and long term. All around she was very knowledgeable and I felt that I could trust her which is super important to me. I even texted my best friend when I left to tell her how great Dr Simmons was and recommend her.
Dr. Simmons is an excellent practitioner. Enjoyed the visit and her bedside manner.
Dr. Simmons was wonderful, direct, and made sure to answer all of my questions completely and triple check to make sure that all of my concerns were taken care of.
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 of long 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.
Dr. Simmons is a great doctor. She is very knwoleable and has very good bedside manners. She was very fast in her assessment and explained the treatment in a clear manner. Staff was very welcoming as well. I would definitely recommend her.
Short wait time. Helpful staff and Dr. Simmons is very personable and made me feel very comfortable.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Simmons! She was super nice, saw me in a timely manner and answered all of my questions. I will definitely recommend Dr. Simmons to my friends and family who need a quality gyn.
Dr. Simmons clearly shared information and answered my questions. I truly felt like she listened and heard my concerns and wasn't in a rush to move on to the next patient waiting. Appreciated this a lot!
The staff were pleasant and helpful. The doctor was wonderful with good bedside manner. She was running a bit behind so I waited for about 40 minutes.
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-GYN office). 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.
Dr. Simmons is amazing! I have had some bad experiences with examinations in the past. However, she made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Simmons is very professional and knowledgeable. Her staff is welcoming and friendly.
Dr.Simmons was very attentive and knew what she was doing. I felt completely at ease and confident in the care I was receiving.
Questions were asked, recommendations were given. No judgment.Always appreciated when seeing a doctor.
Great doctor and great staff.
I have been going to Dr. Simmons for over 15 years. She has been amazing, answers all my questions and delivers concerns without making you feel insulted.
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 type of 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 to walk 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.
She was super nice and great! The staff was awesome as well!
My visit was great.
She is polite,friendly and welcoming. I like her
She was very pleasant and welcoming.
The staff was very friendly and quick! A very positive experience for a first time patient! Very pleased!
Appointment was short and the doctor didn't really ask me any questions or make me feel comfortable enough to express myself. Left with a lot of questions still. Bedside manner could be much better. A plus is that they are very updated in terms of technology. When I needed to contact my doctor I had no idea how to. I got an email about test results but, no way to speak to my doctor about it. All in all won't be coming back.
Dr. Leslie was very nice to me she is a great person.
Dr. L. SIMMONS is AMAZING.... I have never felt as comfortable with talking about things as I do with Dr. Simmons.
she is Great, i will definitely recommend her, friendly and nice Doctor.
The appointment was only 15 minutes and I was in and out! Perfect!
Excellent bedside manner, thorough in her knowledge about my concerns, and easy to access. Their systems were experiencing a technical delay which caused for a longer wait time, but the doctor was immediately apologetic.
Thorough, efficient doc. cares about patients.
I really liked Dr. Simmons. She was warm, kind, and professional. She took time to listen to my concerns and answered my questions. The appointment was quick and efficient but I never felt rushed. Prior to seeing her, for the past few years, I had gotten my annual obgyn check-up through my PCP, but there is a big difference in expertise and ease between getting a pap smear with an obgyn and a PCP, at least in my experience. I'm so glad I found Dr. Simmons; I will be going to her from now on.
Dr. Simmons was very friendly, informative and professional. I would easily recommend her to anyone looking for a new OBGYN in the area.
Dr. Simmons is kind and professional, but slightly rushed. Staff was super friendly and helpful.
Dr Simmons is the greatest!
Dr. Simmons is professional yet approachable. Her staff was efficient. I came in filled out my papers and then I was seen. There was practically no wait time, and the visit went seamlessly.
It didn't take long to get in and I could tell that Dr. Simmons was knowledgeable about the subject that I went in for. She did kind of rushed through all the descriptions and had I not done my own background research on what I was in there for, I might've been really confused. She had a very matter-of-fact tone that reflected knowledge on the subject but not necessarily the warmest. We made an educated decision for my well being together, and she walked me through the next steps.
Dr. Simmons was an absolute dream. She was very knowledgeable and truly heard my concerns and questions. She listened, which a lot of GYN's do not do. I highly recommend her. The staff was also very pleasant and knowledgeable. Wonderful experience.
I loved it! She was extremely efficient. She answered my thousands of questions! She made my first experience at the doctors office very pleasant and all of the staff was very nice as well. It was my first time getting a Pap and I did not feel uncomfortable at all. I would definitely recommend her.
She was thorough , informative and kind . I did not feel rushed
Dr. Simmons is so nice and really helps reassure me with valid information. She knows her stuff
She listens to your problems and is very thorough. I've never experienced any issues coming here.
The visit was great. I was in the office a total of maybe 20 minutes. Staff was friendly and professional as always.
Typically, there is not a real long wait when I see Dr. Simmons but I did have a bit of a wait for my appointment yesterday. She did apologized immediately, however so that made it better.This was my 2nd visit with Dr. Simmons. I like her bedside manner and her professionalism. i am glad I chose her as m new OGBYN.
I loved Dr.Simmons however her staff was a bit unprofessional and could work on their friendliness as well.
She was very thorough and asked me lots of questions to ensure I was in good health overall . Overall I was happy with my experience.
I had a great experience with Dr. Simmons for an annual pap smear/check up. She patiently answered all my questions and was warm and friendly. I have been looking for a permanent ob-gyn (until now, I've just been going to a clinic) because we're thinking about trying to get pregnant soon. Glad to have found one!
I love Dr. Simmons! She has been one of my doctors for a long time now and never have I had any problems with her or her team! :) I greatly recommend her
Excellent service, great bed side manor,fast and efficient..
It's so difficult to find a gynecologist that you like in an office that's efficient. And this experience was all of that. Dr.Simmons was kind, understanding and addressed all of my concerns without brushing me off as so many other doc's do these days. The staff was friendly and I'm happy to have found them!
I highly recommend Dr Simmons. She's very friendly and answer any questions you have for her. Very professional.
I felt very welcomed at the Germantown Office! Doctor Simmons is very nice and very informative! I feel very satisfied with their service! Thank you ladies!
Dr Simmons treated my 15 year old daughter. She had a really good rapport and caring bedside manner. I was very impressed.
Found Dr. Rollins to have a wonderful manner - very professional and good bedside attributes. Asked good questions about my current health and provided options for me to consider.
Dr Simmons is very professional and caring. She treated patients very patiently. Although the waiting time is longer, she took time to explain every single detail and answer all the questions I had very thoroughly. I will recommend her to all my friends and family who need great treatments.
Dr. Simmons was great. The time to see her however was almost an hour. I wish her staff was a bit quicker, but Dr. Simmons was efficient and thorough with her examination.
Dr. Simmons was very thorough and took the time to answer all of my questions . I was very satisfied with my visit.
Really love the fact that she is available on Saturday as my week is really busy. The office location is nice and I was seen right away. Dr. Simmons took her time to answer my questions and I didn't feel rushed.
Dr. Simmons is terrific. I've been going to her for many years, and she provides friendly, efficient, and expert care. She's very respectful of patient choice and preferences and is very knowledgeable and experienced. I've gone to her for routine care, birth control, and all phases of pregnancy. She delivered both of my babies, and I was very happy to have her as my doctor. The new location is convenient. The support staff has changed over the years, and the current staff is very nice and professional.
She was wonderful and respectful and made the appointment feel comfortable and relaxing.
I loved my visit with Dr. Simmons. She was very friendly, she covered everything Her information was very helpful just all around GREAT!!!
I have been a patient of WWG for 6 years now and I am more than happy and grateful for them. I just recently started going to the Greenbelt location with Dr. Simmons and she has been absolutely lovely and always very informative.
Dr. Simmons is very professional and took the time to discuss everything with me.
it was great
Dr. Simmons was professional and gave clear, concise explanations to my questions. If you're looking for a knowledgeable doctor and competent, efficient office staff - this is the place for you.
Very pleasant, wonderful DR. I will definitely see her again for future visits
I think that my visit was very informative,I like the fact that I could get to take my blood test in the office. The staff was friendly and respectful.
Excellent service, outstanding professionalism. They value my time and no unnecessary delays.
I really like this practice. They're always friendly and attentive.
She is a great doctor, she advise me, and was really explanation
Very professional. Easy to talk you. Very knowledgeable.
Always a pleasure!
i love my doctor
Although Dr. Simmons is relatively nice, I wouldn't recommend this healthcare provider for the following reasons: - Excessively long wait times (during my last appointment, I waited two hours) - Unnecessary visits - The doctor asks you to come in for information that may be easily shared via their portal - Poor customer service - I've been waiting to receive lab results for nearly a month. I only started checking in after the 10-day wait period, and no one has answered the phone!
I love her
I really like Dr. Simmons! She is very proffessional, friendly and knowledgable! Only issue was the wait to see her. She is a busy woman!
She was nice and very professional. She also provided alot of useful information and answered all my questions.
She is a very personable doctor ; however, she does not ensure that you are prepped. I had a procedure that was not thoroughly discussed. They did not provide any medicine to ensure the procedure was not painful, nor did they do any testing. The other problem is the office staff. They rarely answer the phone, there's no customer service, and they don't prep patients well. It is unfortunate that I must rate her bad.
Uuuuuuggggggghhhhhhhh 2 hour wait for an annual visit. They probably try to see people with babies first. Lots of the same information, but very professional.
It was very informative and she was very helpful
Dr. Simmons always makes me feel comfortable no matter what news is delivered. Her tone is welcoming, demeanor is cool, and delivery is vivid. I love the way that she takes time to explain everything in the simplest terms possible and get her point across.
Excellent bedside manner, professional and likeable.
Dr. Simmons is awesome. She's kind and always willing to answer questions.
Dr. Simmons was very easy to talk to. She is very professional, and pleasant. I would recommend her to my friends and family.
It was my first time going so i was really scared but they were very welcoming and Dr.Simmons was so nice and caring.
Excellent doctor, customer service.
Very Good Listened to all my problems did seem as of she was in a rush. The wait seemed a little Long about 20 mins to process paperwork.
Very helpful and informative. Provided recommendations for PCP in network!
Office staff were very professional and courteous. The office was clean, organized and very patient friendly. Dr. Simmons spent all the time necessary to address my questions and concerns competently.
Dr.Simmons was really nice I was very well satisfied with my visit this was the first visit and a lot more to come I wouldn't choose any other doctor I know my visit will go much better once I really get to know her but so far she was very up front explained everything to my understanding.Thanx Dr.Simmons
Very friendly, informative, and efficient. I would highly recommend
It was the best doctor's visit I had in a long time, doctor Leslie Simmons is a very patient and very informative doctor. I was very nervous about going to her, but she and her staff put me at ease and took great care of me. Thanks so much
Dr Simmons is a fine doctor I will return to her in the future. She answered all my questions in a thoughtful and patient way. I would recommend her.
Very informative and on point with good information
Please note: I never saw Dr Simmons. This is a review about her front office... I used ZocDoc last year to find Dr Simmons after difficulty making an appointment with my former doctor due to scheduling conflicts. I was very happy with Dr Simmons and her staff and tried to return today for my annual exam. I had made the appointment at least a week in advance, through Zoc Doc. I arrived early for my appointment. The whispering receptionist, who refused to speak up/louder when I asked, waited 35 minutes to check the clipboard to even begin to check me in. I waited 45 minutes today before being given 6 pages of their privacy info and rules. Then after a total of an hour wait I was told that they couldn't see me today if I was going to use my insurance because I had been there last September and my insurance wouldn't cover it since it's only August. Obviously I had intended to use my insurance and indicated that when I made the appointment. Additionally, the woman who told me said they only use ZocDoc for new patients and was stunned when I said I had booked through ZocDoc!!! (No other doctor I've ever used says ZD is only for new patients nor did I read it anywhere on their ZD page.) Needless to say I left, after waiting an hour and not being seen, and booked an appointment with my former doctor who had no problem and reassured me none of this would be an issue when I go next month.
It was lovely and everyone was nice.
Not judgemental about lifestyles and knowledgeable about new standards of care in the field
She was nice and she really listen to what you are concern and try to fugue thing out for you. But the waiting time kinda long. Her assistant is not really professional same as the front desk. Overall, it is satisfy me.
Never got to see my doctor.
Dr. Simmons was great. She explained everything and had all my steps planned out. I felt good and confident aftery visit
Excellent doctor, If someone asks I'll definitely recommend her.
My first visit was excellent. Doctor Simmons, was very informative, polite, and overall excellent in general. It was my first visit and my wait time was over 30 minutes. Maybe it was because I had to fill out some paperwork. But I would definately keep her as my gyn.....five star rating.....
The staff was very friendly and accommodating.
Dr. Simmons seemed professional, but her bedside manner did not come off as warm or friendly. The front office secretaries were not particularly helpful or friendly and they scheduled me for the wrong type of appointment so I had to reschedule to come back again. This may have been an isolated error, but it was frustrating to me. Hopefully my return appointment is more successful.
What a breath of fresh air for a doctors office! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the wait time was next to none. Dr. Simmons was fantastic! She answered all of my questions and concerns and then some! I would recommend her, 100 percent!
Loved my visit. loved the atmosphere in the clinic and she's a great listener and answered all my questions. I was recommended by a friend to see her and I will be back!
Her office was quick, quiet and clean. No complaints from me. I was seen right away. Dr. Simmons was very helpful and explained things to me very clearly and concisely. Perhaps one of the best doctors visits I have had in a long time!
I waited for an hour and a half and never received a call with my results.
She was good but I waited in the waiting room for over an hour before I was seen.
All around amazing
They were very quick, nice, and helpful. Doctor Simmons is both knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She is helpful in answering questions and is reassuring, and she makes sure you completely understand your complications, outcomes, and medication options before she lets you go.
Dr. Simmons and her staff were warm, friendly and professional. I had to wait maybe two minutes to be seen and had all of my issues addressed.
She was very polite and informative. She provided options which is what I needed. I would highly recommend her.
She was attentive and I didn't feel rushed
Dr. Simmons listened respectfully to my symptoms and immediately began suggesting courses of action, and discussing them with me. She was calm and component and made me feel less nervous and confident about the outcome of the appointment.
