Verified Patient Reviews
She had no interest in any questions I had. It was all about the $$$$$$ !!!!! The worst I’ve ever seen. I now understand all the bad yelp reviews. At least pretend you care a little about the patient. Pathetic.
It was excellent. I was 20 minutes late and they were very kind and accommodating. Everyone was very nice and professional. They took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions.
The overall skin exam was more thorough than previous dermatologist of 35 years. However, the entire experience with a new doctor was a little disappointing only because she seemed a little too hurried which caused me to be distracted so I forgot to ask her a couple questions. But next appointment is in one month, so will hopefully have time to address all my concerns then.
Office was nice and clean. Dr. Simoni was pleasant but talked too fast that I struggled to get a word in, edgewise. Came for a primary concern but left with a cure for something that I explicitly stated didn't bother me in the first place. Perhaps they are interrelated, but it has been weeks and I have not seen any improvement. If you want a more thorough diagnosis and someone who will care enough to investigate the cause of your skin concern - I would look elsewhere. As far as I can see, I was a revolving door. I was sent on my merry way with a bagful of brand name samples, rebate coupons and an instruction sheet that says that facials in their office could be covered if I called my insurance.
I have always had a good experience with this office & Dr. Simoni.
I was quite impressed and immediately referred her to a friend of mine. She was reassuring and thorough.
She is awesome , professional and all staff very friendly
Dr. Simoni was referred by my mom who has gone to Dr. Simoni for several years. They have always taken wonderful care of her so I was comfortable going there for my first full-body skin check. The front office staff were very warm and personable and we had a fun conversation. The entire staff made me feel perfectly at ease. Dr. Simoni provided wonderful suggestions for sunscreen (I am always outside) and other skin care products to keep my skin at its best - even prescribed a treatment for toe nail fungus. The Botox on my mom looks great and I will be happy to return for my annual check and any other derm / skincare needs I have in the future. Thank you ladies!!!
She is lovely and talented
She's awesome! So happy with the results! Definitely going back and will refer to my friends!

It was super easy, doctor was nice and knowledgeable, staff are great and no time wasted. Would recommend.
I enjoyed the thorough attention and explanation Dr Simoni provided and the friendliness of the staff
Well run office excellent care very gentle surgical technique
Very knowledgeable physician. I liked they way she tailored my treatment based on my needs. She let me know how we could reach my expectations in a safe manner rather than telling me what she could not do for me. I like a physician that finds solutions rather than roadblocks.
Friendly, professional, diagnosed quickly, set treatment recommendations, explained things well and office staff was efficient. Waited 10 minutes passed scheduled appointment time to be seen. This was the only downside.
Dr. Simone is very personable and professional!

Dr. Simoni is friendly and professional. She exudes a warm "bedside" manner. We come from Santa Barbara to see her!
Really appreciate Dr. Simoni's patiently acquainting me with the various options and their implications. She made me feel comfortable about asking questions and did not rush the conclusion. On the contrary, she made doubly sure I understood and was comfortable with next steps of bcc treatment.
Azita Simoni, MD is very pleasant, professional and communicative. I highly recommend her for dermatology care, treatment and procedures.
I was very pleased. She took the time and explained things very well. I highly recommend you see her.
I visited her office twice, once for a consultation and once for an extraction procedure. I was early and she was able to see me before my scheduled time. The staff is friendly and polite, and during my procedure they made me feel comfortable and calm.
Follow up visit for some skin damage treatment. Azina Simoni, MD is professional, friendly and informative regarding treatment.
Dr. Simoni is the best dermatologist I have ever gone to. I switched to her after going to another doctor for a long time. She is really fast at diagnosing as well as treating. She is very direct in her approach, which works well with me. She is very knowledgeable and assertive. She is not super sweet and annoying that way. (Based on some reviews I read on Yelp about her that people need super sweet doctors). She is very loyal if you do as she asks you in terms of treatments and follow up and likes loyal patients.
Very quick, efficient and professional service
Dr. Simoni was efficient without rushing, and has a lovely personality. My daughter was quite comfortable with her.

Hi, This doctor was presented to me through the practice as I had asked for male doctors only from my insurance provider. I approached the appointment with trepidation yet optimism. I did have a healthy waiting rom wait, however it was neat, clean, offered free samples, and a very nice assortment of mags to read. The staff was friendly, kind, considerate, professional, well organized, attentive and helpful. The patient waiting room was sterile, bright, well decorated, organized, and modern. The doctor herself proved to be a very intelligent, resourceful, quick to make decisions, ok bedside manner, efficient, and good with time management. I need other treatments so she was helpful in explaining the next several steps. I was overall impressed and very willing to give her a 9 out of 10 with 10 the highest. I will recommend her to friends, family, and clients. the only thing she lacked was enough time to see me about the other issues. However she did say we would handle them on the next visit in two weeks. Therefore I left feeling that my issues had been addressed. Thanks to her, her nurses, and office staff.
Very Professional Doctor
Both my husband and I have visited with Dr. Simoni and have been extremely pleased with the outcomes achieved. Dr.Simoni is a quality driven, compassionate, competent dermatology specialist that we would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thus far, the entire experience with she and her staff has been outstanding.
After having a few troubling experiences with doctors in the area, I was nervous for the appointment ene with the great reviews on ZocDoc. However, I was amazed by the wonderful treatment I received from the staff and doctor. And best of all, I was in and out in under 40 minutes.
My visit with the dermatologist, Azita Simoni, was excellent. She is very kind, welcoming, caring, and professional. Azita Simoni gets an A++. There was one huge problem with my visit though. During my visit I was called into the doctors room by a brown haired woman, I think her name was Laura but I'm not entirely sure. She directed me into the room while walking behind me and instructing me to turn right or left. When we got into the room, she was not welcoming at all. She did not ask me how I was like a kind doctors office receptionist or whatever she was would do. She immediately just asked me why I was there. I told her why and that I also needed to re fill a prescription. She then replied with, "For acne....?" That's kind of why I am there? While we were discussing the prescription, she was naming two different medications and I was not quite sure which one was which and she asked me if I needed one of the two. She seemed extremely annoyed when I asked her which one was which and when I told her the one I needed she replied with, "noooo.... This is the one." She did not smile once nor look at me while talking to me. I then saw Azita Simoni who then told me she would have the girl come back in and explain to me the facials program. When the girl came back In, she looked extremely irritated that she had to come back in and explain the program to me. She walked past me, put the paper on the desk, turned her back towards me and started talking about the program and marking the paper up without looking at me or even directing her attention to me. I don't even know what she said. When I left the office I was extremely mad at myself for not making a complaint because I think that was the rudest doctors visit I have ever encountered and other people should also not have to go through that unpleasant experience. I think she is extremely unkind, unprofessional, unwelcoming, uncomfortable to be in a room with, and I will probably not be visiting again in the future because of her. I felt like a complete obligation and nuisance being at that office. Except for when I was with Azita Simoni. She was excellent. But an excellent doctor really should have excellent assistants as well. Thank you.
This was my first visit with Dr. Simoni. Not knowing each other, our interaction was of necessity on a somewhat formal level, but she was very professional, addressed my needs respectfully and directly, and allowed time for me to ask questions. The office was run efficiently, I was made to feel comfortable. While I am something of a "doctor-phobe," I know will feel more relaxed about returning to see her for follow up visits.
Very kind gentle and fast. My kind of doc!!! Great staff too!
Great doctor! I will recommend her to all my friends.
