About Me

Mary Liz Simmons-Sherlock is a board-certified family nurse practitioner with clinical interests educating and treating patients on the issues that surround women’s health such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, cycle health, and family planning. She received her nurse practitioner degree from Purdue University, in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Simmons-Sherlock strives to always be compassionate and caring to both her patients and their families. She understands that she is not only caring for the patient’s physical health, but also their emotional needs. Her philosophy is characterized by holistic, empathetic, and culturally sensitive care to all. Care involves seeing the whole patient, and not just a single illness or health concern. Using a holistic perspective, Simmons-Sherlock likes to consider all facets of a patient while working towards their goal. That goal may be good overall health, family planning or pregnancy.

Simmons-Sherlock feels that it is essential for her to be a patient advocate, provider, teacher, and leader so she can deliver the highest quality care. She is committed toward life-long learning, through formal education and hands-on experience to better herself and her knowledge of women’s health. Outside of work, Simmons-Sherlock enjoys hiking, tennis, pickle ball and spending time at the beach with family.

Very nice and kind


Loved the facility to begin, very updated and clean office! Also all the staff is super nice and welcoming. The receptionist could improve her explanation skills but very thing was great. My Fiancé and I are moving back up north to where we are from in MA but the only reason we are not moving back is right now is because of Cary OBGYN, we love the care I receive and don't want to anyone else taking care of us during my pregnancy besides them!


The wait time was low. I was seen very quickly. The intake nurse was very friendly


Before the day of the visit, I was constantly reminded of my appointment through text messages and email. On the day of my visit, I considered Mary's attentiveness to my concerns and the explanations. She took time to attend to me without rush.


Mary was amazing! We are first time expecting parents and she was so helpful and made our very first OB appointment so special!


Mary is amazing! She was so caring and compassionate towards me and my husband. She asked me questions and listened. I felt seen and heard. I can tell that she actually cares about me as a person and my well being. She deserves a raise, a daisy and any other accolades available. The nurse was amazing too! They were quick to fill out the paperwork that I needed and were very sweet when I was having a hard time.


Mary showed special interest in how I was doing after my delivery, and asked to see a photo of my baby. I felt she really cared and we had formed a real connection.


I saw Mary Liz throughout my pregnancy. She is an amazing and caring provider!


Ms. Simmons-Sherlock was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. A perfect balance of professional and friendly. She genuinely shared my enthusiasm about my pregnancy and seemed genuinely invested in me as a patient. Ms. Simmons-Sherlock was very respectful of my medical decisions, explaining the recommendations and existing data supporting them and allowing me to make my decisions free of judgement or pressure. I look forward to being under Ms. Simmons-Sherlock's care again in the future.


Kindness of staff


Nice spaces, the nurses and doctors are wonderful. Everyone is nice.


Friendly staff, Easy checking in and checking out process. Overall a great experience!


The whole process was perfect. From check in to the visit. Shared decision making. Friendly staff. Provider the best! 10/10.


Short wait times


Maryliz was very helpful and caring. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family


Dr. Mary is the best! I have white coat syndrome and get extremely anxious when going to the doctor but she put my mind at ease. The nurse was excellent as well. I never got her name but she was so kind and gentle when taking my blood for my glucose test and I hate needles. She was awesome and I barely felt the needle. I was thoroughly impressed!


A very good experience overall! Staff are nice and friendly. The NP is beyond friendly and listen to all concerns. I will miss her! No complains at all! 5 ⭐️ bravo!


I was having a very tough time and struggling emotionally related to work and she listened and genuinely showed me concern and care!


Everyone is always friendly and welcoming at every appointment. They create a very comfortable atmosphere and are very knowledgeable. I always leave feeling like I’ve gotten quality care.


I went in for a [] and was an emotional wreck. The full impact did not hit me until I sat in the waiting room. Everyone from the nurse to Mary to the receptionist was incredibly kind and understanding. I cried in reception, in the exam room, in the lab, and basically the whole campus. Everyone offered support and community in a way that I was not expecting. Mary asked if I needed a hug, and while I declined, the respect for my person and the humanity of it all was incredible.


They didn't rushed....and the doctor was answering all to my question....


I was very impressed by the care, support and communication


I love Dr. Mary. She is the best l!


Everyone was very kind, and Ms. Simmons-Sherlock spoke with me in a very friendly and personal way about the reasons for my visit and the next steps in my care.


Friendly attitude, explaining all my questions well, very helpful.


The staff was very friendly all the way from the front desk staff to the nurses.


The all team was extremely amazing!! The receptionist (especially the receptionist!!) the nurse and the doctor; those ladies have a lot of education, exceptional manners and sensibility, they made me feel safe and valued even though than I'm a foreign and English is not my native language. It feels so good being treated with respect and attended to professionals who don't discriminate against your race or your skin color


The doctor was excellent and kind.


Very personable and understanding of my overall help.


I was super impressed. Mary really knew a lot about the issues that I was dealing with and was really helpful.


I Loved Mary and the lovely MA who worked with me during this visit. They were thoughtful, professional, understanding and left me feeling heard and cared about.


Patience and great listening to my concerns


Excellent service front desk to the doctor amazing and nurses too


Dr. Simmons-Sherlock was extremely knowledgeable and friendly during the entire visit. She was very helpful in giving suggestions and helping to understand the issues I was having. The staff and the facility made my visit very pleasant! After this visit I told family members about my great experience!


He understanding that me being in that building again was very difficult.


Mary Simmons Sherlock is wonderful. She has seen both my daughters now and I highly recommend her to others. She is kind, patient and respectful.

I have never been treated by a Dr. as I had last week. Utmost respect. No matter where I live (planning to move soon in state) I will travel to this office for appointments.

Everything was outstanding. All staff I encountered were friendly and informative. Mary Simmons was amazing! She answered all questions thoroughly and took the time with me. I am very happy I have recently switched to Wake Med Obstetrics and Gynecology in Holly Springs!


I felt "heard"


Mary Liz offered excellent compassionate care which made taking some very hard news much more bearable. I really appreciate her timely explanation of the issue and follow up. Thank you again. That level of care is really rare.


Overall great experience


Mary Liz was fantastic and I have already referred her to a few friends!!


Convenient location. I think the provider was genuinely concerned for my wellbeing.


The communication


Everything is perfect. Keep up the good work


Extremely happy with my first visit since moving to NC last May. Mary is amazing - her personal touch makes all the difference. She went above and beyond ensure she would follow up my results with a call not once but twice. Excellent facility great staff - great experience with the nurse that saw me before Mary as well - very happy overall


I truly appreciate that the doctor respected my privacy. That meant a lot to me. Also,she eased a big concern I had for some time. The nurse named Yolanda was very nice and understanding as well. Thank you both for a wonderful experience.


I felt that my provider Mary E Simmons was amazing! She listened to my concerns and even put me at ease my listening to the heartbeat even longer. I would love for her to deliver my baby.


The staff so as the provider were very friendly and easy to talk to.


Mary was great


Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and had a positive, pleasant demeanor.


Everyone is very helpful, courteous and knowledgeable


She was very caring & made me feel like I was her only patient. She was not rushed & I felt like she was genuinely concerned about me.


Doc was great


My appointment with Ms. Sherlock was one of, if not the best health care appointments ever. She spent time to discuss concerns and explained things I was curious about.


Dr Mary Sherlock has an amazing bedside manner. I would recommend her to everyone! The receptionist Lana is wonderful! She is very personable and sweet.
