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.

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.

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 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.

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.
