What People Say About Dr. Galina Simkin, MD

She was the neurologist for my dad when he had seizures and sepsis in the hospital. She barely acknowledged me as his daughter. She talked over me, would not listen to me at all. All she would say is that he had dementia and get ready to put him in a nursing home. This was the farthest thing from his actually case. He was confused from the sepsis and is back to his highly intelligent, articulate self. I would not recommend her at all and actually called for a second md opinion.

I found Dr. SImkin to be quite capable and caring for the 2 years I saw her. Then suddenly, she became unavailable. She would not respond to my numerous messages left at various numbers. I tried to reach her for over 3 months with no response. I have given up and had to find another doctor. This is unacceptable and terribly unprofessional.

Dr. Simkin is wonderful. We highly recommend her! Our 88yr old mother suffered a second stroke in Feb 2016 and Dr Simkin was reassuring and gave us advise that was inline with our mother's quality of life. Whereas, other MD's were trying to convince us to do 0ver-the-top treatment that wasn't necessary.
