Dr. Simensky's written evaluation was very accurate, showing he genuinely listened to me; which is extremely important to me. I was worried he would treat me like a Google know-it-all but I like to have as much information as possible when facing big stuff.

Feb 18, 2023

Indifferent & somewhat arrogant. Seemed disinterested in the information I gathered & brought with me.

Feb 03, 2023

Dr. Simensky was very well informed about my condition despite the fact that it was my first visit, and I felt that he was very thorough in the exam and that he was knowledgeable and listened to me.

I came to Dr simensky in a very bad condition, scared, worried not sure how things would come out. He showed great compassion, put me at ease, was kind, made sure I understood what was happening, explained what was wrong, helped me with follow up OT,PT and vision therapy and has continued to offer the highest level of care and compassion as I have had follow up appointments with him. I hope Memorial Healthcare never loses him as a docotor..he is simply amazing and a huge asset to your healthcare community and those he serves.

I love Dr.Simensky as my neurologist. He's very efficient and cares about my migraines and how my medication is working for my overall health and needs. He is very thorough in how he explains the effects of trying different medications and the affects they may have and he is very compassionate and optimistic which I really like and enjoy about his personality!

DR. Simensky is absolutely amazing. I feel incredibly fortunate that he was the doctor who was assigned to care for me when I needed a neurologist. I have nothing but Good words and things to say about him. He listens, he explains, he lets you ask questiosn, he gets to know you, he invites you into the helaing process, he makes sure you clearly undersatnd what is going on and what the next steps are, he seeks and looks for solutions.. He does all this while helping you feel calm and with a smile he helped me feel so relaxed when I was scared and paniced....He is amazing !!! Memorial is very very blessed to have hm as one fo rthere doctors! Thus I gave all 5's !

I like Steven Seminsky very much. He is a real doctor, and I know that he cares about my well-being. That fact ALONE is refreshing. So many doctors now are nothing but professional referrers. NOT Dr. Steve! He knows what to do, and does it. He does not like interference from "other medical professionals". Me either!
