The doctor I was referred to was booked. Alternate doctors in the practice were offered to me as an option. This visit was the first time seeing this doctor. He was extremely knowledgable of his practice specialty.

Dr. Simons is exceedingly clear in his explanations---and decent and real given the nature of what it is he's examining! I feel great trust, I feel I have an ally in what is rather concerning condition and just hope he continues at Legacy because he is a very, VERY good doctor that I look forward to seeing each time. Please recognize that in him, you (Legacy) HAVE a very, very good doctor. Thank him, please-----

The doctor was very friendly. I showed up very early for my appointment and gynecology and anal surgery work separately in the same little area.Anal surgery receptionist was out to lunch when I got there early so the other lady let her know that I was presented, but she did not come to greet me for quite some time till I asked if they knew I Was there.That could use a little improvement. Also, this fig monometer was broken so it would be good to get that fixed and I think they were going to work on that that day.

I was told by my PCP I might have Crohn's and I need a colonoscopy. I scheduled with legacy because I work there and have their insurance. The doctor kept lecturing me to eat more fiber and didn't believe me when I said fiber makes my symptoms worse. He prescribed me cream for muscle spasms and sent me on my way. I'm still nervous I might have Crohn's and what to do.

I'm a VA patient assigned (by my request for a local hospital) to legacy for a colonoscopy Legacy seems to have a good interface with the complex VA system.

Dr. Simons is a very professional, understanding, and Caring person. I really want to thank him for all of his advice during my visit. He is truly experience and he knows what is he talking about. He was able to diagnose and tell me exactly what I need to do to taking care of my health.

Did not receive the expert opinion I took the time and money to see. Did not take my concerns of pain seriously and basically told me to take some advil and suck it up for the REST OF MY LIFE. Such a waste of time. This is the fourth doctor I have seen about this issue, trying to find help for chronic pain post pilonidal surgery. I specifically stated I was not seeking medication ( I self-reported allergic reactions to opioids) and would like to avoid surgery if possible, aka being a very reasonable patient. Why can't doctors acknowledge their patients' concerns and say they are not educated enough about a problem but use their expensive supposedly-knowledgeable expert experience to help find a solution?
