Dr. Simonian is a very knowledgeable, caring and compassionate physician. Best gastroenterologist I’ve ever been to. Very caring, competent office staff, and procedural support staff top notch. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

The only problem I have encountered with Dr. Simonin is really not his. Wait times are unreal, with personal experienced waiting time of over 2 hours past appointment.

Dr. Simonian is a wonderful doctor!

Hours and hours of waiting when I have a scheduled appointment for a procedure!!!!! 4 to 5 + hours. When calling his office I get put on "Eternal" hold. Staff does not answer the phone!! I have to have pre-authorization of a medication and between Dr. Simonian, Walgreens and Humana there is no concern about my health. He does not have enough time between patients to explain what is going on. Not sure he follows up with any check ups. I was never able to get one. I am 72 years old.

This doctor does not take the time to talk to you about what is going on with you. Takes way too long to get an appointment, and then does not get your prescriptions filled when you need them. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

I had an appointment for liver test abnormalities and possible gallbladder stones. He got me in about a month sooner than my original appt. It's been 3 weeks since I had blood work to get a biopsy done. Still don't have it scheduled. Nurses and scheduler do not return calls as promised. Dr does not seem concerned for the wellbeing of his patients and staff try to hurry you along to get to the next insurance payment......I will be going tomorrow to get my results and find another dr.

Dr was good. Getting his staff to call back is the worst thing ever. Went to local er for pain with feeding tube. Tried to call his offer and had to leave his nurse a message about being in the ER. Took her 2 days to call back and then said I needed to be there immediately. This was two days later. Never will I go there again.

This dr over books and spends no time with his patients. Will not return to him.
in Fort Smith, AR |
While I was an inpatient he performed a procedure on me. The experience was satisfactory and was told by a nurse that he was a good Dr. I was also told to make a 6 week follow up in his office. When I called his office the closest appointment was more than 9 weeks away. When my appointment day came and I called to get directions, after confirming via text message, I was told he was not in clinic and I needed to reschedule, the closest appointment was March. I did not make another appointment.
