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.
