Review of Dr. Simkin

- in Wisconsin |

That makes a lot of sense. They are in it for profit not helping. They put on a very caring act at the first appointment and bam you keep coming back. Who puts someone on limictal, propranol and welbutrin when you already know that is a bad combination. The suicide rate with propranol alone is scary high. Add the rest of the meds in and you have a patient who isn't going to get better. So that means more visits and more money. This is ridiculous. Mental health care is horrible in the south!

Dr. Simkin is the most intelligent, caring, honest Doctor I have ever seen. I have been her patient for 8 years and I trust her medical option 100%. I am so thankful I started seeing her.

Review of Dr. Simkin

-Orlando, FL |

She is an excellent physician with great insight, knowledge and people skills. We took our son there for years and she is an excellent diagnostician. She took him off meds that he did not need and he has done very well under her care. I would recommend her without reservation.

Review of Dr. Simkin

-Loveland, CO |

You may have to wait a while past your scheduled appt time as one reviewer stated but it's because when dealing with mental issues you can not know from one day to the next how much time any one person may need to speak with Dr. Simkin. She does more to try to help her patients than most psychiatrists do. She doesn't rush them out because their 15 minutes are up. Several other psychiatrists in the surrounding area do rush you out at the 15 minute mark and your no better than when you went in.

Review of Dr. Simkin

- in Houston, TX |

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and so I have knowledge of the mental health profession. I chose Dr. Simkin for my adolescent daughter after much research. We gladly drive over 2 hours to see her. I have very much appreciated that Dr Simkin takes a "whole child" approach to treatment before jumping straight into psychiatric medication. We were able to complete a hormone workup, sleep study and genetic testing which all proved helpful for the most accurate treatment of depression.

Bottom Line -It is likely you will have to wait an hour or more after your scheduled appointment time to see her -Office staff is very rude, unhelpful, and can be difficult to contact -You will be charged around $300 each time you visit -You will be required to make more office visits than you would with other physicians (which I feel is more for financial profit than your wellbeing) -I have tried to give them the benefit of the doubt many times but I am always left with a bad taste in my mouth
