Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent all around. Highly recommend!
It seemed like the Dr. was really interested in just getting me out of the office. I know I was there for a routine appointment needing only a prescription refill but I felt very rushed.
It was very quick and had a very good exam.
Efficient, friendly, and helpful.
Overall it was average experience. Doctor spent a few minutes performing an visual exam. Didn't seem to care much for who I was as an individual but more so just going through the motions. After exam, he gave me two options for a wart on my foot, freeze it off or let it be. When I asked him for his medical opinion he said "it's your choice". Now, while it is true that's it's my choice I think medical opinion is warranted more than just giving the options if the patient asks. Doctor was very fast and got me out the door in 15 minutes. I could tell he really was just going through the process and didn't really care about the decisions I was making not the outcomes. Maybe it's a problem with the medical community as a whole? If you want an quick experience this is your place but you won't get personal attention.
Wait time was less than 10 minutes. Very happy with the service from both the Dr., his assistant Melissa and the front desk.
Dr. Simodynes was very professional and took the appropriate time to do a full body exam. He found areas of concern and treated what he could immediately and wanted follow up on others. I was very satisfied with the whole visit.
It was good. He seemed to know his stuff. Was pretty quick and didn't ask me if I had questions and then sort of just left. No hand shake goodbye to signify end of appt. which seemed a little odd.
Dr Simodynes was friendly. He explained what he was going to do and was thorough in his exam. He took the time to make sure my questions were answered.
It gave me a lot of peace of mind!!
He was very professional and thorough.
The office staff were very friendly.
Seems to know what he's talking about; he's pleasant and friendly. And most I.portantly, laughs at my dumb jokes.
Dr. Simodynes was very short with me. I had several questions for him and he was very quick in answering them and I'm still unclear on the questions I went in for. He told me there was basically nothing I could do for my infected piercings to help improve the redness except for laser treatment they provided. He walked out of the room after explaining the treatment without saying goodbye or anything, which was extremely impersonal.
My 7 year old had a growth of some sort that needed to be removed. Dr. Simodynes and his staff were all very kind and respectful to my son who was terribly nervous and asked a lot of questions. They demonstrated further patience and waited while he voiced his objection to the procedure. We ended up with my son sitting on my lap, facing and hugging me, and they were totally find conducting the procedure with him on my lap anyway.. Everything went smoothly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend him.
Always a great experience!
The visit was quite satisfactory.
Dr. Joe Simodynes was very friendly and informative. His office staff was a little cranky and unprofessional.
A very pleasant experience.
Dr. Simodynes and his staff are thorough and professional.
Although it is a doctor appoitment, it is always a pleasure to go to Dr. Simodynes! He is professional, smart, always listens to you and never rushes your appointment with him. He is very caring and knows what he is doing.
Dr. Simodynes was so professional and courteous. He immediately asked me questions to better diagnose my acne condition and to prescribe the best treatment for me. He is an excellent professional who will get to work right away without wasting time.
Dr. Joe S. was very professional and used an excellent approach: Reviewed my pathology report, answered all of my questions, and helped me make the best treatment decision.
This was a much overdue appointment and I appreciate the ease of scheduling, the cordial staff, the nurse assistant and Dr. Simodynes.
Dr. Simondynes is a straight shooter and attended to all of my needs and concerns.
Diagnosis and initial treatment, as well as an overall body scan to evaluate for issues, went briskly and efficiently. An explanation of the process and the issues was understandable and complete. I was seen in the same week I logged on to make an appointment. I received a reminder by phone the day before, and a text message reminder on the day of the appointment.
Very easy to talk to- being new to town I was worried I would have a hard time finding someone I felt comfortable with. Nice, kind and very helpful. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Joe took the time to explain things and I didn't have to wait at all. It was a very good visit.
Excellent! Joe was efficient, timely, knowledgeable, respectful, and personable. Everything you could hope for in a doctor!
Competent quick and pleasant. A nice combination.
I am impressed by the practical professionalism. He is not into selling procedures. My daughter got a prescription that will last for a year in one visit.
Efficiently run office. Wonderful experience with the Doctor, his assistant and front office staff.
Busy office. He was willing to answer all my questions about an unclear condition, and discuss possible courses of action.
Prompt and friendly
Dr. Simodynes is personable, thorough, and very professional.
Dr. Joe was GREAT!! the office got me an appointment right away and he was very personable and knowledgeable, I will definitely go back whenever it is needed.
He's a great docotor but his m.a is not the friendliest!
Quick, efficient, friendly, and responsive. Only prescribed and recommended what was needed, and didn't encourage unnecessary treatment. Will definitely return and highly recommend.
This was first time seeing Dr. Simodynes. My main complaint was quickly treated in the customary way, and I had a secondary issue, a little more involved, which was also addressed efficiently and with no discomfort or aftereffects. The Dr. was friendly and relaxed and open to discussion. His M.A. was very effective as well. I was in and out in 20 min. or less.
Very through. Gentle with procedure
ON TIME! Thank you.
Thorough exam and practical advice. Well done.
Doc was throuough in explanation using terms easy to understand. He was knowledgable in his answers and I felt confident in his presence.
We have gone here for years. We noticed since the last time we were here that alot of the familiar faces with warm personalities were gone. We heard that the office had been bought by some corporation since we have been there and alot of the old staff quit. Thank goodness Dr. Simodynes is still here; he is the best. But, too bad friendly faces are gone.
Super helpful. Pleasant bedside manner. Highly recommend him.
Everything was great. I went in to get a mole looked at, and the doctor decided it was best to remove it. Within 10 minutes, the mole was gone,a nd I was on my way. The only hiccup was that I had to pay on the date of service for all anticipated costs. After my insurance paid their part, I was due a refund, and it took a couple months and several emails with the office to get my refund check.
Dr. Simodynes, J presented with professionalism, great chair side manner and made me feel comfortable with the procedure. I would recommend him highly.
Overall receptionist at check in did all seem to be on the same page and wasn't warm and inviting. Staff in the hallway didn't seem professional - could have used a door in that facility so patients didn't see them hanging around and stuff. Terms of the visit it was very short and brief, not much detail asked or given, just a quick solution, which after evaluating my whole experience i decided to cancel. I didn't feel comfortable with how thing operated that day and what may be routine to them wasn't to me.
He took 2 minutes to look at my face before prescribing a few medications for me to use. Of which he didn't actually tell me how to use I had to ask the nurse several times to make it clear. Seemed like he just wanted me in and out.
Very good at what he does. He is very much down to business and is aware of all the options that are available. Highly recommend.
Professional and Courteous. Knew exactly what I needed for a simple ACNE treatment. Would highly recommend this place. The receptionist was also very nice and talkative.
He's a great Dr & very personable!
Overall, Dr. Simodynes seemed like a good doctor however, I don't think he's had much experience with diagnosing people of color. It felt like he was just guessing.
Dr. Simodynes is very good at listening, answering questions, and taking care of what needs to be done quickly. I've seen him for several years and have never had to schedule multiple appointments for follow-up. He is usually able to take care of everything in one appointment, which I really appreciate. I would encourage the office staff to try to be more helpful with payment and insurance inquiries. I know they hear the same questions day in and day out from patients, and that must get to be pretty irritating. But for me that was my first time in that situation, asking those questions, and I felt pretty intimidated by the staff and their response to me.
Feel comfortable with his care.
It was fine.
Dr. Simodynes is fantastic. I saw many other dermatologists before Dr. Simodynes, and he's the first one who really know what he was doing and provided my different options for treatment plans. I'd reccomend him to all my friends and family.
Very quick and professional
Dr. Simodynes is top notch. I have a condition that has plagued me for years. He took skin scrapings to confirm it was what we thought it was. He's the first doctor to do that. I appreciate that kind of approach to diagnosing and treating!
Great dermatologist. Knows his stuff. Reassuring when it's nothing and happy to cut/burn when needed. Staff is great with the anesthetics.
He was efficient and clear about the course of treatment needed (Acne). He and the office did not try to up-sell me anything - which is a first; I have had experience with a different dermatologist where I was checked out in the cosmetic sales office. I really appreciate being able to set my appointment online. His website has an extensive library of information on the skin condition that I was concerned about. Most of the other dermatologist websites are focused on selling cosmetic procedures.
Handled well and very professional.
Great guy, great doctor!
The visit was short & right to the point. I was assured that the issue for which I'd made the appointment was minor, & I was given sample medication & directions. I was relieved but glad I'd gotten a professional opinion.
Quick appointment and the Doctor relieved my concern right away about spots on my back.
Dr. Simodynes is simply the best dermatologist I have ever seen. You cannot do any better.
Extremely professional, fast and friendly.
Fantastic dermatologist! Takes his time and is very thorough. I highly recommend him!
Excellent visit. Dr. Simodynes was knowledgeable, pleasant, and efficient. I would recommend him to friends and family.
I always enjoy seeing Dr Simodynes! He is always smiling and really listens to what I have to say. Very professional and gives great adivise and alternative ideas as well.
He was very nice and I could highly recommend him as a Dermatologist
Everything I wanted from my visit. Very cool, knowledgable and professional doctor who made me feel comfortable and confiden.
He was very pleasant and thorough ... very happy with visit.
Great visit. I had questions answered ,some treatment and recommendations fro the doctor(Joe).All within 20 minutes!
Joe was very clear and knowledgeable. We were in for my daughter, who had symptoms that we were unable to find online and with very little information. Joe knew right away what it was, and was able to explain it more. My only complaint about the office, is every time I called, I always got their voice mail. Not once did anyone pick up the phone to answer, however, my calls were returned.
I've had a good experience with Dr. Simodynes. He was thorough and discovered my basil cell skin cancer early. He was also very helpful getting psoriasis under control.
Dr. Simodynes was great! Compassionate, caring and spent enough time with me allowing me to ask questions and feel comfortable! highly recommend!
Overall the Dr was helpful, was a very brief visit, and having to wait over an hour was not pleasant even though they apologized it was because of a prior appt that delayed everyone else's.
I was very pleased with staff and my doctor
He was a delight! Took my concerns seriously and had great advice
I have see. Him before and always been fully satisfied.
All my visits to this Doc have been exceptional in all respects. Highly recommend Dr. S.
The doctor was very helpful and described everything he found. He gave me a few treatments and suggested a time for a follow up appointment.
Dr. Simodynes is personable, likable, and very thorough.
Good guy, always helpful.
Dr. Simodynes was very nice, answered all my questions, took his time with my appt. I never felt he was rushing. I will be back next year for a check up and will recommend him and this office for sure. Thank you, Lisa G.
Amazing, in and out, no wait, Awesome Dr, answered every question! A keeper!
This was my second visit. They got me into exam room on time and the doctor was in immediately after on both occasions.
I was pleasantly surprised at the timely and efficient service I received from the initial reception to conclusion of appointment.... Thank you
A very capable and affable physician
The women at the front desk were very helpful
Very pleasant. Dr. Joe makes patties feel at ease.
New patient at this office and this doctor. My visit included a full exam to check for moles and other suspicious skin lesions. I also had 2 moles removed and sent for pathology. I was in and out of there in 30 minutes and never felt rushed. The staff and Doctor were very pleasant.
Excellent and informative experience
Dr. Simodynes was caring and professional and I will plan to see him again. My husband also saw him and was pleased with his care. He took a biopsy of a mole my husband had on his leg just to check and everything came back clean! We will be going to see him yearly for skin cancer exams.
Waited a half hour to get in, front office did not give me paper work to fill out for 25 min then I had to rush. However, they were busy on phone. I was bleeding alone in room after procedure and had to shout out of my cracked open door until I got a nurse who was very helpful. I wish first nurse would have checked to be sure I was ok before she left. But it wasn't a big deal a bandaid solved it
Dr. Simodynes, has great bed side manner, and I will definitely return.
Always a pleasure seeing the good doc.
Second visit to Dr. Joe. I thought I had some problems on my face. Turns out to be subaceous hyperplasia and I was relieved. Getting cautery next week.
I had an awesome visit! Dr Simodynes was professional and right on my issue, great doctor!!
well done. Thanks!
Dismal experience. Joe knows skin, but the visit experience makes me not want to go back. The communication sucks overall at that office. And the worst, he's one of those doctors you have to chain to a chair so you can actually have a full conversation. He had actually opened the door, was standing in the hall, and had his hand on the knob to shut the door behind him while we were still talking, Isn't that a violation of HIPAA and my privacy rights???
Attentive and friendly. Came back in and answered another question after he had already left the room.
On time. Professional. Thorough. Good medical explanations and encouraged questions. Will return and recommend to family and friends.
Very satisfied. He and his assistance were just spot on - very professional. I would recommend them to anybody.
The staff and physician were pleasant and knowledgeable. 2 things to note-they don't eprescribe and it is very hard to get a return appt.
Very professional and engaging.
Great care from both the physician and medical assistant staff. Very professional.
Everything was fine! Thanks, J.W. Bunch
Very professional. Very friendly
I like this practice so much. He is always giving his full attention to all my questions and concerns, and explains all things in easy to understand detail. The staff is great!
Very gentle and professional,going back for sure:)
A little rushed and one sized fits all treatment rather than finding out more about my paticular condition.
As with the last 3 yearly check ups, as always, my visits are efficient professional and totally relaxed.
I guess just ok. Seemed rushed and not very promising about the 5 medications I was prescribed.
He was very personal and informative. I would visit him again, or refer him over to a friend/family.
Dr. Simodynes was very quick and efficient during the appointment, and yet I never felt rushed. I felt very comfortable during the appointment, and confident in his judgment and ability to address my concerns. I would definitely return.
Excellant- great bedside manner. He sincerely cared about addressing my issues quickly and efficiently.
Dr.Simodynes is a good guy, I highly recommend him.
Great, fast and good service.
Nice Dr., competent, easy to talk with and we've never had to wait very long to see the Dr. He treated my son for acne and I felt my child was in good hands.
Not sure that an appointment that lasted a total of 8 minutes is even worth it.
dr. simodynes is great. nice guy, very professional and a great doctor. i have seen him several times for various things and have had nothing but good experiences & results.
He was a nice, professional guy with lots of knowledge.
Will definitely return. Diagnosed me right away, answered all my questions and was willing to spend as much time as needed for The appointment.
I got to the office early due to bad weather so did wait a bit until my actual appointment time but was brought in to an exam room on schedule. All personnel were professional, helpful and pleasant. Dr. Joe was great. He explained everything and I felt I got a thorough exam.
Dr. Simodynes is the best dermatologist I have seen and I have seen at least 5 different Dermatologists over my life time for various skin problems. I would never hesitate to recommend the good Dr. to anyone. He and his staff are superbly professional and I never felt uncomfortable at all.
very thorough and professional
Very good experience.
Very thorough and friendly. I would highly recommend him.
visit went very well. Doctor is very professional and let's me know costs of procedures and best options that will work best for what i need performed. (i appreciate this since i do not have insurance) I was in and out very quick. I have recommended Doctor to several people.
I'd like to think I was welcome but your never know. No one said thank you.
The office staff was very friendly. Dr. Simodynes was very persanable and did a great examination.
I believe that when I made the apt, I described what I was being seen for, yet no one had a glue. Did they not get the information???
Took great care of me and my problem with no wait time. Very quick and efficient in his assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Very pleased and will return for any other issues or questions!
Seemed Knowledgeable though was fast. Wait time is pretty long (~ 30 minutes in exam room, ~ 15 minutes in reception despite I have filled out everything online prior to the appointment!)
Dr. Simodoynes was very forthright and professional is his examination. His questions were thorough and to the point. He did not come across as stiff and robotic in diagnosing my issue. In other words, he didn't sound like a medical journal. Dr. Simodynes spoke in simple, understandable terms and quickly gave me options for a solution.
Dr. Simodynes is an excellent dermatologist. I am confident that he has my best interests at heart and that he looks out for my well being. As someone who is more prone to skin cancer, I know I can trust Dr. Simodynes to give me the best advice regarding my current and future health. Thank you!
I made my appointment through zocdoc and when I got to the appointment the office did not even have my son on the calendar even though zocdoc sent me a text to remind me. We were worked in.
Just a brief introduction today, but he was pleasant, knowledgeable, and prompt. We'll definitely return.
He was fast and courteous exactly what I wanted
Thorough, efficient, congenial!
Felt very comfortable with my visit. Dr. Simodynes was very thorough. Great bedside manner.
Very professional and upbeat.
Dr. Simodynes made me feel very comfortable and calm. I was very nervous regarding a skin abnormality and he was very calm, and very quick! I am very glad I went to him.
Very nice. Dr SImodynes is very nice and easy to talk to. I like his direct approach, he made it easy to nake a decision for the next step!
Excellent. Completely satisfied.
The office was efficient and the Doctor was great.
Dr Simodynes was very polite and efficient and made sure that I was completely satisfied with my course of treatment before I left. I would refer my friends.
I wish he could spend more time with us since I still have questions to ask. He was really quick.
I thought dr. simodynes was very pleasant, efficient and easy to communicate with.
It was fantastic! He's very thorough and very pleasant! Highly recommended.
Professional , quick
Very good. Will use again and will recommend.
Quick, effective, nice.
Very friendly and thorough.
His treatment program is very aggressive and I like that.
The visit was good and he was professional
He was very knowledgeable and knew there might be other underlying issues. He acknowledged each one and addressed my concern about finances as well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Simodynes to anyone.
The visit was very fast. The doctor just quickly visited me, write a prescription and some lab tests and left the room without any careful investigation. I had couple of questions regarding the medicine that nobody was available to answer them. However, I can not completely write my review. they might need to see the lab test results for serious investigation. Thus, I am waiting for the next visit to defiantly write my review.
The appointment went just as planned, in and out very effcient!
A little rushed, but seemed thorough in his assessment. Answered all questions.
Very professional and easy to talk to.
His PA was a little unpolished and seemed distracted.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
Answered all my questions professionally.
I found another doctor who was more thorough and focused on me as a long term patient.
He listened to me and was very courteous and prompt.
Thorough and professional.
I think Dr. Joe Simodynes was very professional and he did a great job.
That was was fasted and most efficient use of a doctor visit I have ever had--from the moment I walked in to the time I left--15min!
Very good service, seems like a good doctor. Plan to use him in the future and get my wife to switch to him as well.
Doctor was friendly. The medicine he provided worked, will go back again if I need to see any dermatologist again. Thank you.
Very timely, prompt attention
Got an appointment the same day. Doctor was friendly, direct, and professional. I will go back to him for an appointment next month. The office staff I also found helpful, professional, and friendly. Recommended.
Amazing! I've seen multiple doctors for my condition in the past few years. The medication he prescribed cleared it up instantly!
