Patient Ratings & Comments


Comments are gathered from our patient satisfaction surveys.

I've been a patient of Dr Simon for well over a decade - I have several chronic illnesses, and see many specialists - by far Dr. Simon is my favorite. De Simon always takes all of my health issues into consideration, and is proactive and in touch with my other doctors if promptly if necessary. De Simon always seems knowledgeable as to what is going on with my health, even with doctors not within the VMG.
Excellent medical [...] care!!
Dr. Alan Simon is a terrific doctor. He has been managing my case of CAD thoughtfully and intelligently for about 7 or 8 years. He always looks at the facts and evidence, sometimes consults with another doctor, such as a heart surgeon, and comes up with the best plan. He explains everything and seems like he really cares. I highly recommend him to my family and friends.
