My name is Michael Simmons and, like you, chose a career in medicine. Medicine has always been a fascination of mine from the time I was young. As I started elementary school, I had difficulty with my eyesight. After surgeries and treatments, it was the doctors that gave me the ability to see! Over the course of my formative years, doctors continued to assist me with my continued visual impairments always with the outcome of restored vision. After experiencing the benefit of what felt like miracles, I was hooked. I was going to become a doctor too. I started by becoming an athletic trainer in high school. Later, I worked emergency rooms as an Emergency Medical Technician. I volunteered on large ambulance services. Finally, in pursuit of my dream, I attended medical school and then residency. After residency, my career took me into solo and hospital practice where I stayed for over 25 years.
