    I have enjoyed being a patient of Dr Simpson a five star physician. Wish I could find a pcp like Dr Simpson. And her staff is wonderful, especially nurse. He was caring, gentle, and always had a friendly smile to calm the nerves of someone who hates injections. Even during COVID he was caring and safe.
