PART 1 OF 2
INTERNET BEHAVIORAL STARTED CRACKING DOWN EARLY THIS YEAR ON PRESCRIPTION MISMANAGEMENT. POPULAR INSTANT RELEASE MEDS (ADDERALL, KLONOPIN, XANAX ETC) WOULD NOT BE NEWLY PRESCRIBED DUE TO THEIR ADDICTIVE TENDENCIES. ANOTHER POLICY STARTED AT THAT TIME MANDATED THAT ANYONE SEEING A PSYCHIATRIST WOULD ALSO HAVE TO SEE A THERAPIST ONCE A MONTH, NO EXCEPTIONS. NO ONE COULD GIVE ME A CLEAR ANSWER AS TO WHY. I WAS ALSO TRICKED INTO REDUCING MY A.D.D. MEDS BECAUSE IM NOT WORKING/SCHOOL
Dr. Simon is the most caring + hard working MD a patient could ever ask for. I've struggled with addiction for 17 years. 12 months ago, when I came to the conclusion that I was ready to take my life back. I found the resources to help me do so were not easy to find. After months of searching for medical help, I could only get evaluations months away. When I was lucky enough to find Dr. Simon, I got an immediate appointment. From that first day his attitude and personality put me at ease.
After meeting with several doctors over a period of 8 years, I was beginning to feel hopeless as no one was able to figure out a comprehensive treatment plan that could alleviate the symptoms of my anxiety and depression. I was also concerned about jeopardizing my sobriety due to my history of addiction. And than I met Dr. Simon!!! He is one of the most caring, compassionate and knowledgeable doctors in the mental health field. He truly gave me my life back!
I came to dr simon at a very difficult time, though not addiction related. I felt like there was no hope for me but he was so knowledgeable and reasonable i felt like i could really trust him. He really seem to care about his patients.
Dr Simon helped my family at a difficult time, he made us feel comfortable and make the right decisions for us.
