Dr Simon' nurse struggled understanding me. Despite numerous explanations. Eventually she understood after Dr Simon spoke with her. It has been a couple weeks and she has been helping me get prior authorization on a medication. I still have not got that yet. Dr Simon was amazing however, best doctor visit I have experienced.

Good experience, the only negative was the wait time after I checked in was over 1 hour.

Dr. Simon was very respectful and took the time to explain things to me. He knew my medical history; commented on a recent diagnosis I had. I'm glad to have been referred to him.

I was referred for a medication adjustment which I got. The majority of my visit was waiting for the dr. & listening to the dr. threatening me & basically telling me I was lying & making excuses.
