He was quite condescending. He belittled me for asking honest questions and seeking information and medical advice/opinions from him. This made me feel like I could not trust him. I don't care to schedule future appointments with him.

my daughter has special needs we arrived 15 min early as requested and we were not seen for almost and hour or more after our arrival. I felt as if the doctor was not listening nor trying to understand my confusion about the recommendations of the visit because the visit was scheduled for an entirely different reason nor did anyone care how long we sat and waited.

My son was very overwhelmed and cried a lot, they handled him extremely well.

July 19, 2017

We were here for a 2nd opinion and I was thoroughly impressed with the care that my child received as opposed to the other office that we had been to. Dr. Simons was awesome, his PA was thorough, and the 2 nurses that we saw were absolutely unbelievable. They took their time, spoke directly to my son, and we felt very confident in his care.

We waited for 2 hours after the appointment time to be seen. I lost a full day of work because of the delay.

I'm so sick of this provider being so insensitive. He needs to learn some people skills. This is my child, my world. he treated me like an idiot and was so insensitive of my husband and my concerns. We are not doctors, our training is in a different field, so when we ask questions about what we are concerned about, we would appreciate it if we could have some kind of respect towards us.
