Excellent doctor. For 65 years wore glasses and now have perfect vision.
in Miami, FL |
I have been Dr. Simon's patients for more than 14 years. I had an eye surgery few year ago and everything was excellent from the Doctor to the post surgery appointments in his office. In addition I have called for appointment due to an emergency and I have been seen the same day and treated like a V.I.P. patient. The office staff is friendly and make you feel as if you were at home. I trust him and follow his recommendation.

I am never going back to that office again, saw the doctor for about 4-5 minutes. i couldn't even properly ask him any questions without him being rude. i will go and find another doctor who is more caring and willing to listen to my medical condition.

I had cataract surgery with Dr. Simon 7 months ago. He is an excellent physician and I trusted him completely. He has an excellent way of communicating the medical information thoroughly and with great clarity. I highly recommend him.
