Client Reviews

“Dr. Simon is absolutely amazing!!! I loved that she was very thorough and followed up to check on my daughter. She was the only doctor who knew what was wrong and treated her properly after seeing other multiple doctors!! Highly recommend her and this entire practice!!”


“I highly recommend the services of Dr. Simon. She is the type of physician who spends considerable time with you and is very caring and compassionate.”


“Dr. Simon is undoubtedly the ideal match for any child or adult with any anxiety or fear. She is completely thorough in examination while explaining everything she is doing. She is calming, comforting, gentle, and exceedingly patient. She is professional and can seamlessly speak the language of her audience. She effortlessly maintains adult conversation while answering the parent’s questions in Parent-Talk while simultaneously answering my daughter’s questions in Age 11-appropriate language.”


“This was my 3rd annual visit with Dr. Simon. She listened carefully to my concerns and gave me thoughtful responses. Waiting time was short and time with her felt as long as I needed.”


“Dr.Simon is perfect for teenage girls. My 15 year old was so self conscience about her acne. Dr. Simon and her nurse team made her feel comfortable and great about the journey of clearing her skin. Dr. Simon explained her options and took time to talk to my daughter. We have been her patient for over a year and plan to stay! She’s patient, kind, professional and so is her staff.”

“Comfort inspiring treatment – From the initial experience at the front desk, throughout the consultation with Dr. Simon, and in conclusion at check out, I was delighted by the professional yet warm and welcoming atmosphere. My consult with Dr. Simon was terrific. I felt instantly at ease and left feeling I was in good hands. Her “bedside manner” is great!”

“Highly recommend – I have been seeing Dr. Simon for a couple years and I am continually happy with each of my visits. She is very personable, and makes me feel very comfortable when speaking to her about my concerns. I highly recommend her as a dermatologist.”

“Dr. Simon made me immediately calm. I was a nervous wreck certain that I would have a million things wrong. She was so gentle, she has a great personality, and it felt as if I knew her as a friend. She gave me a good moisturizer with samples and coupons. This was my first ever appointment for a skin cancer screen. She was wonderful! I walked out and made my appointment for next year! Not scared anymore! Thank you, Dr. Simon.”

“Caring – I felt the staff was kind, caring & informative. Dr. Simon explained what she was going to do. And didn’t rush through my visit. I’ve been going to this practice for over 25 years.”

“Dr. Simon gave us a comprehensive treatment regiment for our infant son. He has been suffering with eczema over most of his body, with bad cradle cap, and with a relentless skin infection on his face. Dr. Simon was very patient and thorough when going through the treatment regiment with us – to make sure we were confident in our ability to adhere to the plan. She explained expertly, but in understandable terms, what was happening with our son. Just by demystifying his issues, she helped allay much of our parental anxiety. Also, her staff has been incredibly helpful in answering our follow up questions. We feel very confident that Dr. Simon and her staff will get our son well!”
