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.

Wonderful and competent doctor, great "bedside" manner, explains things thoroughly and he is very pleasant! I was really impressed by the fact that he showed up on time for my surgery - they hadn't even finished getting everything ready yet!

My husband had been ill for about a year prior to being diagnosed with a bowel obstruction. He was admitted to the hospital on an emergency basis and Dr. Simon was called in to be his surgeon. He was wonderful. Dr. Simon has an anointing for what he does, his explanation of the situation and the procedures and expected outcome is the best I've seen. My husband dodged a bullet, thanks to the wonderful service and skilled hands of Dr. Simon. I know that GOD used him to save my husband's life.
