I have gone to Dr. Simkovitch for 3 years. He has spent a total of 10 minutes with me. When I felt the Cpap machine was not working properly . He said it was and didn;\;t look into it any further. I do not find him to be competent or thorough. They make appointments one year out and staff does not call to remind patients. . I would never recommend him to anyone based on my experience with many Dr.'s I have seen many great Doctor' , He is dismissve and lacks bedside manner.

Dr. Simkovitz has been my primary physician for many years, and has always provided the very best care. He has developed and tested a regimen of therapies for me that have had great benefit for my health and quality of life. He has also recommended a great group of specialists for me that have helped with areas that are not his specialty. I would highly recommend Dr. Simkovitz to anyone.

He would not call to advise me of the results of a CAT scan that he recommended.I had to request the report from the company that performed the scan which reflected a small nodule in my lung as well as a lesion . When I then called him to get an interpretation of the results i was told he does not call patients and I would have to wait for my next appointment in 6 months for him to explain. I was told phone calls take time and would have to pay for another visit if I wanted to find out sooner.
