Dr. Simpson is great. He’s experienced enough to know what he’s talking about, but young enough to keep abreast on the latest studies and developments (including alternative therapies). Office visits will often run long because he will listen to all of your concerns and thoroughly explain the various options (and the pros and cons of each). You never feel like you’re getting rushed out the door with incomplete information. He’s cautious and will order a lot of labs, x-rays, etc., which I consider a good thing. If nothing but steroids is working for you, he’s a pretty strong believer in surgery, though he will not push you into. If you leave a message with his staff, he will call you in the evening to discuss whatever’s going on. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find a drug/diet combination that relieves my symptoms, but I blame the disease, not Dr. Simpson. Of the half-dozen GI docs I’ve had over the years, Dr. Simpson is certainly among my favorites and I would definitely recommend it.
