Dr. Simon can be a little bit long-winded, so the visits can run long. However, he is very warm, down to earth, clear, informed, and easy to talk to and connect with. I'll take those qualities in my doctors any day of the week!

I had received a sleep study from this office. Dr. Simon said that I have serious sleep apnea and convinced me to get a CPAP machine. I'm using it now at nights.

Dr Simmon is a very skilled sleep doctor. I explained or tried to explain reasons for sleep problems. He seemed irritated by my explanation. [...]

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.
