What People Say About Dr. John Simon, MD
Reply
Good doctor, aware that he has other great reviews. Some caveats: speaks in very particular language so he can be hard to understand as his "lay person" talk is minimal. Also last appointment this May 2019, the duration of time from getting out of the car, going through the appointment (10 minutes early for our appointment), and to getting back into the car, was 2 hours for a 9.5 minute consultation with Dr Simon (and no, we did not have eyes dilated). This was the third consecutive appointment where we've had large delays being seen within the scheduled time.
