Review for Stephanie V. Sims, M.D.
Patient ReviewDr. Sims has been my daughter's doctor since she was 7 years old. Marissa, my daughter, is now 15 years old. Dr. Sims was not currently taking new patients, but since she knew our family dynamics, she made an exception, and took Alexander, Xander, as her new patient a year ago. I am so honored by her expertise with her care and maintenance of his anxiety and possible ADHD. I would be lost without her, so this momma loves the peace that our household now has. Xander has more confidence in himself, and I could not wish for anything more. She has given our family hope and understanding in one another. There is nothing more greater than being able to understand someone's pain, or even being able to see things from their point of view. That is priceless, and for that, I am forever Dr. Sim's cheerleader and advocate. I recommend showing her much appreciation for what she brings to the UFHEALTH Psychiatry. You are VERY blessed to have her as a member of your team. For I know that I am VERY blessed to have her on my team.

Patient ReviewI really love Dr. Sims... She listens and includes my child on decisions, giving him the feeling like he is making them, not just the adults. I'd love for her to be my child's regular doctor but she was only covering for his "regular" doctor whom he only saw once before she went on medical leave.
