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.
