Review of Dr. Simotas

- in New York, NY |

I've seen Dr Simotas for over 10 years. He saved me from unnecessary, painful and traumatic surgery when I came to him for a second opinion on my back pain. He's sympathetic and a very thoughtful Dr. carefully investigating medical problems and coming up with carefully reasoned solutions. he can seem a bit detached but thats him thinking over the best solution to your medical problems. I would unreservedly recommend him as a completely asa physiatrist who has your best interests as his main goa

Have had the luck and pleasure of being under the care of Dr.Simotas.for a few years. I have a lot of back problems and am 82 years old. Luckily he is a wonderful doctor, is a big help to all my problems, and also amiable,patient and reassuring! Would not hesitate recommending him to my children, family and friends! YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDS WITH DR.SIMOTAS!!!!!

Review of Dr. Simotas

I would recommend Dr. Simotas 100%, I went to him with terrible sciatica. I went to several other doctors that could not help me, misdiagnosed me with more serious issues. He sat down with me and reviewed my MRI and actually showed me the issue. I walked away with a well rounded wellness program that included specific exercises and stretches. Within a week, the pain subsided. I am super grateful because other doctors recommended surgery etc.

Review of Dr. Simotas

Don't go to Dr. Simotas. I saw him several times over the course of 6 months. Not once did he ever remember why I was seeing him - even when he called me to report test results, he couldn't remember why I'd had the test & didn't bother checking my file - he just guessed, badly. With 2 exceptions, his staff were rude and unhelpful. He was dismissive, never explained anything, made me physically uncomfortable, & prescribed a drug that my gp warned me I shouldn't be taking.

I have been seeing Dr. Simotas for over a decade. First in 2006 was for a herniated disk that I injured skiing. he correctly diagnosed the problem, started with injections and PT then ultimately recommended one of his colleagues perform surgery. Within two months I had no pain and was playing tennis then skiing the next season. More recently I was experiencing bad shoulder pain which Dr. Simotas diagnosed as spinal stenosis after an MRI. He recommended PT which eventually helped. A great Doc.
