Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been seeing Dr. Simon for over 30 years. He has been the most kind and caring doctor I've ever known. I work in healthcare and I wish all doctors were as professional and concerned as he is. I would recommend Dr. Simon to anyone who is looking for a doctor who listens and cares, who is professional and helpful.

Dr. Gerald Simon has been my doctor for 18 years. He really patiently listens, calmly answers and makes sure you understand his recommendation for treatment before you leave. Yet he does all with a little humor to put you at ease in dealing with your problem. I would rate him 5 stars plus.

Dr Simon and his staff are very knowledgeable and professional. They are all very personable, too. I felt like a person, not “an appointment”. Everyone was very friendly and kind. During my visit with Dr Simon, I felt like he gave me his undivided attention and really cared about how to get me feeling better.

My appointment was at 12:30pm, I waited until 4:00pm and never had so much as a Nurse come in and check my vitals or talk to me. That is 3 and 1/2 hrs, there is absolutely no excuse for such terrible service. As much as I respect Dr. Simon and In doing so have overlooked such long wait times in the past I think 3 and 1/2 hours is a new level that I no longer choose to contend with. Thanks for your service in the past but I need a physician more time conscious of their patients than 3 and 1/2 Hours.
