I have found Geisinger to be top quality on all of my visisits
Dec 15, 2016
Wish that MD's notes had more details
Dec 14, 2016
When I asked for recommendations of what I should do, I liked it when she started out, "If you were my husband, this is what I would tell you".
Dec 14, 2016
Dr. Simmons was excellent, attentive and detail oriented. So far my experiences with Geisinger providers continues to be superior to any care I've had in the past.
Dec 6, 2016
This doctor was conscientious, insightful, sharing, and well informed.

dr Simmons is an excellent, caring doctor.

Jenifer and her assistant are great!

could not have asked for anything better
Nov 15, 2016
Dr. Simmons is an ultimate professional but very friendly. She answered all my questions and set up a program for my future care. She took the time to do a procedure the day of my appt. so I did not have to return until the future appt.
Nov 14, 2016
Dr. Simmons is a very high quality provider and has established a very good reputation in this region. If you want top shelf care she is the go to provider in her specialty.
Nov 7, 2016
Dr Simmons is one of the nicest and BEST doctors I have had in my 70 years on this planet.
Nov 3, 2016
Dr. Simmons showed no concern for my problem. She tried to leave after talking to me for 30 seconds. She didn't ask any questions about what has been going on with me. When I tried to tell her what has been going on she looked irritated that I was even there. I have never been treated so poorly by a physician in my life. I will not return to her and I will recommend to others that they go elsewhere if they need seen in her specialty.
Nov 3, 2016
Received excellent care, but not likely to recommend any urologist to others.
Nov 1, 2016
I'm highly fluent in English so It seemed as if I was being taught the information I needed. Pretty cool. Approach is firm but fair. I will consult this person for future issues of this type.
Oct 25, 2016
Dr. Simmons was friendlier this time than she had been in past times, but she didn't provide the amount of time or examination that the previous urology doctors have done with me. A former neighbor of mine, when asked about Dr. Simmons, absolutely gave her a TOTAL thumbs-down & would NOT go back to her! The doctor was very abrupt & rude to our former neighbor; she was okay with me.
Oct 24, 2016
Dr Simmons is the greatest
Oct 18, 2016
very pleased with this visit
Oct 18, 2016
Care provider advised she had only ever heard of my symptoms once and it was earlier this year. Care provider basically said she was unsure how to treat it and prescribed a random medication in hopes it would help. Care provider gave zero assurance she would continue to work to learn more/discover more about what may be causing my problem. I plan to schedule an appointment with a different Urologist not in the Geisinger system.
Oct 11, 2016
My experience with Dr. Simmons was very disappointed and unpleasant. Due to the fact that she told me that she cannot see patients without any medical condition. She stated that we only have 1000 plus Urologist in this country, and we should not waste their time. She actually, suggest and encourage me not to see other urologist if I do not have any medical condition. I start seeing urologist since I was 40 years old and I never encounter a urologist that told me that. I believe in prevention and I did have questions and concerns that I would like to address and discuss with her on my visit. However, I did not address or discuss any because I did not feel comfortable after she made her comment. I strongly disagree with her on her policy.
Oct 6, 2016
She couldn't give me any explanation about my issue. Felt she made diagnosis up. Was referred to her for a specific test and she said it wasn't necessary. 2 drs. since her have said it was. They did test _____ issue is resolved.
Oct 6, 2016
I did not care for the lack of personality. She made me uncomfortable and like I was wasting her time. Too matter of fact, no personality at all. She suggested a test that she wanted to do, but I do not want to see her again.
Sep 29, 2016
Dr. Simmons needs to realize it's not about the quality of patients she has, it's about the personal care and time she gives to each individual person. Example: calling in waiting room to speak with family members about the results of the surgery, and not having time to meet with them due to her work load. Family having to call for explanation of test results, getting a return call from her NURSE explaining what Dr. Simmons opinion is over the phone. Not requesting a follow up visit to be scheduled to explain to the patient the results.

I have recommended Geisinger to many individuals. In fact my son belongs also a sister.
Sep 6, 2016
Dr. Simmons is exceptional in her field of urology. Geisinger is fortunate to have her on staff.
Sep 1, 2016
This was my first time with Dr. Simmons. She was exceptionally informative and asked questions to really know my past and my family history. I was very impressed with her and will ask for her when and if I ever require her specialty.
Aug 29, 2016
Dr. Simmons is the best- worth driving the distance. I have no suggestions for improvement of the entire experience from a patient perspective.
Aug 29, 2016
The dr. was very good and so were all of the others.
Aug 29, 2016
Already recommended.

I have a lot of faith in Dr. Simmons.

She did a great job!

Jennifer has always answered our questions to our satisfaction.
Aug 1, 2016
Couldn't have a better doctor. I have high regards for her.
Jul 12, 2016
In my case, Dr. Simmons made a significant extra effort to address a recent diagnosis, and as a result of her efforts, my quality of life will be definitely better for at least the next year--- Thank you!!
June 21, 2016
Dr Simmons is an excellent physician. Highly recommended.
June 9, 2016
#4 and #6 Do Not Apply Dr. seemed quite knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable with her.
June 6, 2016
I think Dr Simmons is a caring professional
May 20, 2016
Was not forthcoming with useful information, did not interact with me so that I knew what to expect for recovery and/or medications, dismissed some of my concerns, and was not empathetic to my situation. Felt as if I was inconveniencing her by asking questions or expecting her to spend some time with me during appointment for information or my concerns. Didn't seem as if anyone was inspired to get me better as quickly as possible.
May 20, 2016
Jennifer was very professional and friendly; I have full confidence in her
May 16, 2016
Dr Simmons is the best -- I can't say enough good things about her and will be forever grateful --she cured me
May 11, 2016
5), 6) do not apply. We are annually monitoring any developments with my prostate, following a questionable result in 2014. I believe she plans another biopsy in 2018, barring any surprises along the way.
May 10, 2016
always had a good learning experience
May 10, 2016
I appreciate the time Dr. Simmons takes with me and her willingness to help me manage my symptoms on an ongoing basis.
May 6, 2016
Dr. Simmons was straight-forward, candid and friendly. She clearly knows her field and is impressive as a provider and person.
Apr 26, 2016
Doctor was very rude to my wife and I. Contradicted every other doctors opinion. She said every other doctor was wrong and she was the only one that knew anything about my problem. At the end of my appointment she did not schedule a follow up appointment. She ordered blood tests and said from now on we will only email. No further appointments are needed. She is a very rude doctor. And my wife and I sincerely believe she knows nothing about infertility. We are going to be getting a second opinion on my condition. As every other doctor we have spoken to believes my problem is an easy fix.
Apr 19, 2016
I have nothing but good to say about my Dr.
Apr 19, 2016
I lost confidence in this provider because she did not inform me of the reason she tried to "wean" me from crucial medication recommended nearly 20 years ago by my oncologist. The resultant harrowing experiences at emergency room and extra antibiotics, and at the family clinic,( in both where I was treated like a 10-yeard old girl unaware of basic body care) needed to bring my condition under control were not necessary, if this provider and my PCP had communicated with each other AND included me in the decision. I feel that I am not treated as a mature individual capable of understanding my body or the care of it-I do not need vocabulary made easier! Is there any training available for geriatric care patients for this provider? She demonstrated how to give urine sample on her own body, which assumed that a person my age did not know-or could not give a sample like a younger individual due to physical limits now.
