I would like to take this opportunity to give a big “Thank You” to Alric V. Simmonds Jr., MD General Surgery, for a job well done. Dr. Simmonds operated on me at Florida Hospital, Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.
I met Dr. Simmonds through my Primary Physician Jeaudine B. Hill, MD in the year 2016. When my doctor recommended me to Dr. Simmonds for surgery. I said to her, “Why would you recommend someone from St. Croix to do my surgery?” She said, “He’s the best.”
I saw Dr. Simmonds twice last year. I should have had the surgery in October or November of last year if I had done what Dr. Simmonds asked me to do; but I was scared.
However, on April 4, 2017 I felt pains in my abdomen and asked my husband to take me to the hospital where Dr. Simmonds works.
The operation was successful. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and I know that God was in the midst of everything that day.
Dr. Simmonds and his team are awesome, professional, and most importantly, have excellent bedside manners. I want to thank Dr. Simmonds in a very special way by placing the haloes in the newspaper in his home town, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.
Thank you kindly, Dr. Simmonds for a job well done!
