What People Say About Dr. Robert Simon, MD
Reply
Dr. Simon did what few doctors can do for me. Hhe really helped remove the intimidation that I usually feel when speaking with providers. He was very thorough in his explanations and considerate of my opinions/preferences. He made light conversation while working. Great experience!

I saw Dr. Simon three times, and the third time was the last. He gave extremely general advice and would make the kind of dismissive and shaming comments that keep patients from getting the treatment they need. He made me second-guess myself and my pain. He was often cold and unprepared, and I will no longer use my $35 copay on a doctor who doesn't listen to or respect me.
