How was your experience with the doctor?If you are looking for the most pleasant gyno experience ever... look no further. Low light, comfortable environment, friendly staff, and centrally located. Dr. Simons is warm, intelligent and real. She wants nothing more than to have you feeling like the fabulous woman you are when you leave. Awesome experience all around. Cannot express this enough - a very comfortable setting.

How was your experience with the doctor?Every gynecologist should be as warm and pleasant to visit as Dr. Simons and her team! Very caring and the office environment is so pleasant you don’t mind going for your annual exam. I wish every specialist I saw had an entire team as pleasant and professional as Dr. Simons’.

How was your experience with the doctor?Rushed, there was someone training accompanying the nurse practitioner and I wasn’t asked if that was okay. The trainee was also the one who did Pap smear, she didn’t know how to get the cotton swap off the thing so while she was being taught I had to sit there very uncomfortably with the speculum inside of me while she figured it out. Super uncomfortable experience and I felt like I wasn’t the focus of the appointment at all

How was your experience with the doctor?Waiting area, back office and exam room clean and tidy!! Staff was courteous. I understand that there is preparation before each patient however, my call out is that some of the instruments should stay in the plastic until the doctor or practitioner comes into the room and opens them in front of patient not just be sitting there on the tray. Overall it was a good experience.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was happy with doctor Rachel from Monica Simons staff until last week after I received a positive result of an infection I decided to cancel my vacation plan. I was having uncomfortable symptoms due the infection.The doctor denied sign me a paper to present my insurance saying that i have an actual infection. Results were POSITIVE and she proscribed Antibiotics. She says in her opinion was not a reason for cancel a vacation. For me it was. I can’t go to another country with symptoms and feeling so uncomfortable. As a women, im seriously disappointed. I decided not no come back to this office after 4 yrs and look for a nicer and more ethical doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?Her staff is friendly, her waiting area clean, and wait time minimal. However, I thought Dr. Simons' bedside manner was rather bizarre and unprofessional. She came off as condescending and brusk. After a procedure, she started explaining to me about how my period might come back, and I simply told her that it had never stopped. She suddenly burst into fake boohoo tears and said, "wahhh, I'm sowwy," and while still fake-whimpering, left the room. Perplexing. I still think about such baffling, childish behavior from a doctor. Also, the other rooms where they take your vitals are well-lit, but oddly her consultation room is always kept with the lights off, and you sit there waiting in the dark, with fake candles speckled about, naked from the waist down. Bizarre, am I being romanced? I suppose they are trying to make you feel comfortable, or create a less clinical setting, but it is a MEDICAL office. Why am I sitting here in a dark room? Overall, a silly and strange practice, with a condescending and bizarre-mannered doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?Filling out my paperwork ahead of time was definitely why this appointment went smooth. I arrived at 8:50 for a 9:10 appointment, was called into the first room by 9, and out the door by 9:13!! Couldn’t believe how friendly each and every staff member was. I saw the NP and she was wonderful, answered all my questions and provided advice and said I could call her whenever with questions. I couldn’t believe how wonderful visiting the gyno was!

How was your experience with the doctor?The wait time was very little. Went in for an initial checkup and inquiry about IUD birth control and to get blood taken. Entire time spent was an hour, so great to not wait a long time and be in and out on a lunch break more or less. The checkup room was lit with fake candles and the lights were turned off for the initial exam. I thought it was a little weird. I mean no one likes going to the gyno, so I'm just looking for a Clean, sterile environment, not a spa visit. Maybe this makes some people more comfortable, but it felt a little weird to me. but that's just my personal opinion. The exam was quick and easy. I did feel that after though, Dr Simons was maybe too rushed to take the time to fully answer any questions and concerns I had about the copper IUD. I've gone thorough having a hormonal IUD inserted and removed, and while the experience wasn't awful for me, it is invasive and not something I would likely try out without considerable thought first. It's not like getting bangs and if you don like them, you just let it grow out. It's a big decision for a woman's body. And I've had several unsatisfactory experiences with OBGYNs not fully explaining all the symptoms and what to expect or telling me it won't cause certain symptoms and then I experienced those exact symptoms. Its very individual, but Id like to know all the information when making this decision. So I felt I had to pull the information out of her as far as timing for scheduling the insertion appointment, what pain level to expect, how long the procedure would take. typical side effects, if it required a recovery period. Typical responses from her patients who have this birth control, medications I can take before hand, any necessary adjustment periods to the IUD, how long to wait to have sex again, warning signs to look out for etc. fairly normal, standard questions that I feel should be covered. I felt that my questions were rushed and concerns not taken seriously or past reactions to previous hormonal IUD vs what to expect with the non hormonal copper IUD were not fully explained until I kept asking for further information. Very frustrating when already female birth control can be very exhausting on a woman's body. I feel very confident she would be 100% capable to handle the procedure and would feel safe and comfortable in her hands. But the whole consultation after felt a bit too rushed when it feels like an important decision.
