Shimon has always been very open and takes the time to explain concerns and results of tests. He has never made me feel like just a number and has never hurried me along like someone on an assembly line. He was like a detective assessing my symptoms and ordering the right tests to find out and diagnose me with hyperparathyroidism and was able to diagnose me with a parathyroid adenoma. After seeking help from others he was the only one to find out what was wrong. I was able to have a successful surgery and am so thankful to have found Shimon and a proper diagnosis before more side effects and damage to my system could have occurred. I would highly recommend him.

His idea of practicing medicine is to look at blood test results and compare results to mean. Lacks ability to look beyond numbers and engage in insightful diagnoses. Does not follow up with patients even under critical circumstances. Avoid this PA and go to a qualified doctor.

Does not adhere to patient bill of rights. Has a god like complex, does not liked to be questioned. He is unfeeling and show no compassion to the patient. I felt like I was on an assembly line being processed through.

During the appointment he asked me to call the house RN which I didn’t mind. I asked him if there was a reason because if he had a question I probably could have answered. Not to mention I was calling on my private cellphone. He became very RUDE and said: I’ve asked to do it! Why would I ask you if it wasn’t a reason. I said: Did I miss something I don’t understand why you are being rude to me. He said : obviously there is a reason. So rude he cause my individual to cry. I would never recommend!

Shimon has been managing my Hashimoto's for over 2 years. I look forward to the appointments because I never feel rushed...that's hard to come by at any doctor's office. Shimon always listens and explains everything very well (in layman's terms). Very professional and always makes sure all questions and concerns are addressed. Wait time is also quite management, less than 15 mins most of the time.

Shimon is a very knowledgeable physician assistant. He never rushes you and always listens to your questions and takes them seriously. I would recommend him for any age and whether male or female.
