I brought a list of questions to my appointment and Dr Simons answered them all before I even needed to ask. He was kind, professional and sensitive to my situation. The entire staff were professional and kind.

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?

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.

The Dr. Very caring. And the nurse. Almost passed out and she was fanning me to get color back in my face. Awesome team. Thank you for everything.
