In her day-to-day practice, Dr. Simms evaluates and treats patients with neurological issues with a special emphasis in headache management. Dr. Simms’ practice focuses on empowering patients through education to optimize their contribution to improving their quality of life in addition to managing their conditions. 

At the community session, Dr. Simms will be educating the public about the different types of headaches and migraines, their causes, and management strategies. “My goal for this event is to equip people with the knowledge they need to identify and address headaches and migraines effectively,” said Dr. Simms.
