I was assigned Dr. Simon by my childs insurance. I wish I had been prepared. Our first initial visit was a total of 2 and a half hours. One hr of just waiting. The staff (lady with a russian accent) is not friendly or at all sympathetic to a scared child. The doctor is okay. Overall, it's been the same in the pass 2 yrs we have been going. Crowded, waiting room and unfriendly staff. During Covid-19 our appt was canceled. Then I was sent a message stating that Dr. Simon can do a virtual meeting if we preferred. It wasn't in my list to do at the moment. I received a txt stating we had an appt. When I called to explain I couldn't go because I was jobless. Bibi was like at so cancel? Yes. I said,can we do the virtual meeting and she said,"no" and she hung up on me.

Disgusting! The address is wrong on the website (and shouldn’t they have mentioned when confirming) and the office is crowded and dirty like Port Authority. The office staff is gross - rude, impatient, incompetent. We left without seeing the doctor after being told we need to pay $441 to see the doctor. For an eye exam? Are you lining my eyes with gold? What a crook! Later!!!

Horrible! Office was overcrowded and filthy. Staff was surly and rude. Wait times 3+ hours. Walked out never to return. And.... they still try to make you pay over $400 with insurance (obviously they don’t understand). Run, run away!

I've been seeing this provider for almost 3 years for my son. EVERY time I go to the office it's a complete nightmare. They book appointments for a time prior to the provider even being in the office. They double or triple book time slots. The office is so crowded all the time you're often left with nowhere to sit or sitting on the floor. If you're LUCKY, you'll see the doctor for 5 minutes. Be prepared to be there for a minimum of 3 hours.

I left work early and took my child out of school early bcs. they do not have appts. after work/schl hrs. I arrived for a 3:20 appt. I completed all paperwork and it was 4:00. The secretary informed me that I had a bill from 5 yrs ago (very low) but unexpected, that must be paid with high copay to be seen. I rcvd two calls about the appt. However, noone informed me of this bill. They turned my child in need away due to a minor bill. Hwvr, they chose to see all medicaid pts. Nvmd. if I hv ins.

Dr. Simons is an amazing opthomoligist. Although you will wait a long time to be seen, Dr. Simons is well worth the wait. He takes a lot of time with each patient, is very thorough, and is the only pediatric and neuroopthomogist in the area. Additionally if you call with an eye problem, Dr. Simon will see you the same day you call. His staff is well organized and vet accommodating.

Dr Simons is an extremely kind, funny, and intelligent doctor who SPECIALIZES in eye and vision care. He is not an optometrist solely checking a patient's vision. He is also checking for the overall health of their eye muscles and such, so that does require testing, which may make the appt last longer, and that message is relayed upon making the appt. If you have any issue, they will squeeze you in. It is also a very clean office. But I suppose you can't please everyone right?

Staff was very patient and kind. My son is one of those kids who cant bare the site of a doctor's office. They we're very kind. Dr.Simons was very great with my son he didn't even wine with him. Great technique to grasp young children's attention! Great job! Only one negative the time length you'll spend there 2-3hrs

Did a procedure with other people in the room watching. Didn’t tell me before he did it. Gave me a wrong prescription that could of harmed my eyes. Assistant coughed in her hands then used her fingers to wipe off something I was to cover one eye with. And wait times are ridiculously long

This is the worst service I have ever seen. 3 visita in a row and the wait is 3 hours. They do not consider patient time. Just wait in he room ( they say) and they just leave you there. I can not believe we are treated like this. Driving almost an hour to get there and this is what we get.

Worst experience ever at a doctors iffice, or with a doc. Rude staff, inaccurate charts, focused on money making but not health of people visiting. Do not go to this doc! Save yourself time and headaches.

HORRIBLE besides the wait, the staff is terrible. Upon arriving and being told I would wait at least 3 hours for my infant to be seen, I advised them I would have to reschedule. A month later they charged my insurance over 500.00 for absolutely nothing. My son never went past the waiting room! when I called the office they treated me like I was a crazy lady and told me my son seen a tech which he did not. I tried numerous times to resolve the issue and got nowhere. This place is a joke!

The waiting room is always full, you can wait for hours to have a 5 minute consultation. This is not a one time occurrence either, it has happened with every single appointment. The Doctor, when you finally see him, seems rushed and ready to see the next patient. Get another doctor if you can.

Nightmare. Rude staff who makes you wait hours without ever seeing doctor. This happened on two occasions. Office manager should not be working with people.

The worst wait time ever! How does a patient have a 10:50am appointment and still be waiting in the waiting room at 12:30pm. Ridiculous service. Lousy staff. Worst appointment setting I've experienced. How do people who've arrived after us get called back? Funny how all of those people were hispanic. Guess I'm the wrong ethnicity.

Dr. Simons is such a great Doctor, I am so glad we were referred to him for my daughter. He saved us from a huge surgery and did a great job on her eye. I would highly recommend him.

Bring a good book. You will have quite a wait but Dr Simons gives you 100% of his attention and caring when he enters the room. He brought some of the staff into my exam and taught while he examined my injured eye. That gave me more information as well. I felt I was in the best hands from the very first exam.
