What People Say About Dr. Robert Simons, MD

On 7/23/19 I was dropped off at the wrong address, using a walker in 106 degree weather. Overcome by heat and stress I went into Dr. Simons office where I met one of his staff, Jessica. She located the correct location of my appointment and when I indicated there was no way I could cover the distance of 2 long blocks she found a wheelchair and pushed me the entire distance. She graciously declined my offer of a gratuity saying it was her "pleasure" to be of help. What an exceptional kindness! Words cannot express my appreciation and gratitude. If she is an example of the quality of staff in this office, patients should be flooding to this office. 5 stars is not enough. How about 10

My first appointment as a new patient for exam of lumbar and pain in thighs / legs was a very pleasant experience. Most professional medical doctor I have been exam by in more than a decade. Scheduled CT Scan and other x-rays and follow up exam / consultation in one month.
