  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

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.

Jennifer has always answered our questions to our satisfaction.

Couldn't have a better doctor. I have high regards for her.

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!!

Dr Simmons is an excellent physician. Highly recommended.

#4 and #6 Do Not Apply Dr. seemed quite knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable with her.

I think Dr Simmons is a caring professional
May 20
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.

Jennifer was very professional and friendly; I have full confidence in her

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.

Dr. Simmons was straight-forward, candid and friendly. She clearly knows her field and is impressive as a provider and person.

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.

I have nothing but good to say about my Dr.

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.

Dr. Simmons is the best urologist I have ever been to.

Dr. Simmons is relatively new to me. I saw her last July for the first time when I developed urgency and frequency problems with a BHP problem that I had had for close to 20 years. She addressed it with medicine which allayed the problems almost immediately. This time she addressed some of the initial side effects of the medicine in a clear and readily understandable way. I thought that she did a great job.
Jan 11
Again, I could not be more pleased with Dr. Simmons' professionalism and hospitality during the procedure. I would certainly recommend her to others seeking similar medical attention.

I have always been impressed with Dr. Simmons. She is very through with her examination. She explains everything. She continues to follow up my progress. One time I e-mailed her with a question and barely logged off and she called me with with the answer. Thank you for making her available TO us.
