As a result of the compassionate care we deliver at Cogent Family Healthcare in Mountain View, California, we develop lasting relationships with our patients. Many times we hear from our patients about how Dr. Sims and the staff at Cogent Family Healthcare have helped them. For those of you we hear from, we thank you for passing along your kind words. Here are some of our favorites:
It's been a full week trying to find a really good family doctor for my daughter and I. Today, I took my daughter to be seen by Dr. Sims. It was our first time and he was so caring, thorough with her symptom (ear infection) and he even took the time to see me for my burn injury. I was very pleased with him and his staff was so friendly. ~ Patient from Gilroy, CA via healthgrades.com
Dr. Sims reminds me of how things were in the good old days. It would not surprise me if Dr. Sims made house calls. I have received guidance and advice from him late into the evening, long after most doctors have gone home. He works tirelessly and genuinely cares about his patients’ health and concerns. The facility is top notch. Clean and well maintained. I would also like to compliment his staff. They have been very patient with me even though at times I may not have deserved it. ~ Richard O. from San Jose, CA via yelp.com
My quality of life has improved significantly since I became Dr. Sims' patient. He is the best primary care physician I have ever had.
For those of you concerned about Dr. Sims' prioritization of vitamin supplements as a key component to overall wellbeing, I encourage you to educate yourself with peer-reviewed studies on the matter. I would also like to add that being able to purchase supplements that I can trust are high quality and efficacious is a luxury, especially after the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.
I recommend Dr. Sims wholeheartedly. ~ Grace T. in San Jose, CA via yelp.com
Dr. Sims has been my primary care physician for at least 5 years and I could not be happier.
I recognize that many physicians are smart but Dr. Sims has almost encyclopedic knowledge on a wide variety of topics. He's well-read on the latest academic research and has incorporated many modern techniques in his practice. Unlike other physicians, Dr. Sims isn't over-reliant on prescribing medicine. He considers diet, vitamins and even lifestyle.
Dr. Sims doesn't have a warm outgoing personality but don't think that means that he doesn't care. He spends a lot of time with you -- more than any other doctor I've ever gone to -- asking questions to better understand your situation and answering any concerns you might have. No matter how small your issue is, Dr. Sims will stay to talk to you about it.
Since he moved into his new offices, Dr. Sims has continuously expanded the services you can get in his practice. Recently I got a blood draw on site and there's a dietitian on staff. Once per month, you can even get an ultrasound on your neck to check the plaque in your carotid arteries.
However to me, the most amazing thing is that I can almost always get an appointment on the same day if something urgent comes up. Dr. Sims even works on Saturdays. There aren't many doctors left like him. ~ Jonathan B. in Mountain View, CA via yelp.com
