Dr. Simensky is always a very good listener. I have few options with my diagnosis of SFN and we mostly discuss symptom management. I feel he genuinely cares about his patients.

I'm usually not a karen but I would not recommend this doctor to any woman. I left the appointment bawling because he did not listen to me. I mentioned that I have small headaches every once in a while from my neck pain, and he INSISTED that I have migraines and tried to put me in a migraine medication. I was there because of one seizure. It was like he got an idea in his head and went with it without even listening or trying to understand me. I understand there is a lot of people to help but making me wait 5 months in between appointments just to tell me you didn't find anything was not only devastating but ridiculously expensive for something you could have told me over the phone right after my tests were done.

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.
