How likely are you to recommend Dr. Word-Sims?

(Select your rating)
Dr Word-Sims was the most personable and caring Nephrologist I had ever had. He really cared about my condition and answered all my questions in a way I could understand. I have always trusted his opinion because he has always proved to be correct in my case. He has years of experience in his field and was spoken highly of in every hospital I visited while looking for a kidney transplant. He has taken good care of me for over 20 years.
