Dr. Simons was very thorough in explaining options for my treatment and, additionally, very patient as I made my own decision for this treatment. He was professional throughout and not "schmoozy." I really appreciate and value that.

It was my first time using the Legacy medical group. I had directions, knew I was close but made a wrong turn - had to make a call to get correct direction but Portland office answered. This... good - reception area in chaos. Dr. Simons knew exactly what the problem was, I asked many questions and felt he was talking down to me.

Dr. Simons has been my doctor for years. I trust him very much. That is why I followed him to Legacy Medical Group. He needs a folding" exam table. Much easier for patient as well as the doctor.

Dr. Simons was excellent & all the staff, also received a follow up call checking on me after surgery.

This is the only doctor that I have been able to see over the last four months since I was injured that went into great detail explaining to me what happened and what was going on with my body, every other doctor that I have seen has been in nothing but a hurry to get me in and out of their office. Dr. Simons was referred to me by PeaceHealth in Longview and it took me a while to find out where he was. He is one of the finest doctors that I have ever had the pleasure to meet with in or out of the military!

Dr. Simons explained to me about my condition and gave me 2 options. And told me they would get the next test I needed to take set up. He was very kind and respectful.

I have rectal prolapse, caused by constipation. When I strain to poop my rectum becomes external. Should I not strain when I get the urge because when I do my rectum becomes external?
