Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
