Dr Simon is a good listener. answered my questions. friendly . very professional. nice manner.
Very knowledgeable and professional.
dr [...] very prof
Dr. Simon was wonderful...empathetic, knowledgeable and informative.
While I was looking for presurgical approval, I felt I was very quickly assessed for afib. Future option for ablation was briefly discussed but.was disappointed that another appointment to discuss this as an option was not suggested or recommended. I was able to ascertain what I needed for the surgery but long term options and consequences of doing nothing were not addressed. Dr Simon*s reputation preceded him so I was surprised how quickly this seemed to be considered,,,I was not sure that it had been seriously considered and left a bit unnerved even though I was impressed with his intelligence and credentials? Debating about continuing.
