She spent adequate time explaining all of my concerns, and she is very knowledgeable. I would rate her a 10 provider.
We always have a great experience with all of the providers.
Adrienne is the best!
Both of my children have been coming here since birth. I absolutely LOVE the Dr's here. I cannot say enough about them!! I recommend them to everyone I can!
Ms. Simak was outstanding! Great office visit.
My children love Adrienne! Her expertise combined with her kind, caring bedside manner is a recipe for success every time. She always takes time to connect with my children, talk/interact with them, and then assess their health needs. Adrienne is a gem and we are grateful when we have the opportunity to see her!
Adrienne is a excellent provider
Adrienne and the nurse are both caring, respectful, and knowledgeable.
the staff is always friendly and we always get great care.
Adrienne is amazing!
this provider is amazing. she saw my child for a sick visit but would def recommend her as both my kids primary dr
my daughter is a new patient and the doctor was very nice and talked with us about all our concerns and question!
to date, this was the very best doctor. I will be requesting her exclusively moving forward.
she was excellent! she even took the time to listen to our son's stories and was excellent interacting with him. she was so patient and kind. superior bedside manner. really loved her personality.
Doctor and Nurse both were excellent
First time meeting Adrienne, and she was amazing!
Adrienne was wonderful. She acknowledged the pain my daughter was in, and the ongoing struggle we have had with sore throats and ear infections over the last 6 months. When the 48 hour strep test came back negative, she CALLED ME on GOOD FRIDAY to discuss my concerns and suggested next steps. I really appreciated her kindness and attention to my daughter's health.
Adrienne is great at building rapport with patients and giving clear advice to parents
My son has had a few visits with Adrienne Simak and I am always pleased. She does a great job of making him feel comfortable and engaging with him and although I'm sure she's very busy.. she never makes us feel rushed.
our experience was good, she was friendly and answered all questions
As always, I was more than satisfied with the provider and overall experience. More importantly, my daughter was satisfied as well.
I was absolutely thrilled with the way Adrienne worked with my son. She treated him with great care and kindness, by speaking to him both on his level but also without making him feel like she was talking down to him. She realized that he brought his favorite toy with him to help him feel safer with getting shots, and she treated the toy with the same care she treated my son. It was absolutely wonderful and heartwarming to watch, and my child absolutely appreciated her care as much as I did.
Everything went very well during this appointment.
My sons loved Adrienne. She was super nice and talked to him on his level, which I appreciate.
Adrienne was amazing. she took the time to answer a new moms questions and concerns. I never felt rushed. she was just a babydoll.
thank you, for taking the time to care for my boy.
Adrienne was great!! Nurses who gave my sons their shots were fabulous because that's usually a bad experience.
She has great bedside manner !
I did the walk in for my son's pink eye. He was back in a room with the nurse within minutes of arriving and the doctor for the day was in shortly after that. Adrienne is WONDERFUL!!!! This is the second time I have seen her when my son's usual doctor doesn't have an open appointment. She is fantastic. I can't say enough great things about her. She takes time with my son so he isn't scared. He is a little over 1 so someone shoving things in his ears and mouth is not exactly understandable to my son. She talks to him and lets him see the instrument she is using and lets him touch it before she says ok can I look in your ears or mouth or whatever she is checking. It is refreshing!!! She also remembered my son from a visit a month plus back and was very kind to me as well as him. She talked to me and not at me and explained everything. Just wonderful!!!!!
Adriennne & Lynne are the best
She was so kind and sweet with my son. It was adorable how good she was with him. I think he developed a crush on her in those 5 minutes. He went from miserable to smiling just because of her.
I really appreciated the small interactions with our doctor prior to her exam. Ex. showing her the stethoscope and letting her touch it before listening to her lungs. It proved she was trying to make her more comfortable/less afraid.
that was one of the best providers the practice has had!
we had a great experience.
It was our first visit with Adrienne (Nurse Practitioner) and we were very impressed. She was extremely professional, highly intelligent, just everything I needed to see in someone treating my child. You should be very happy to have her. I would go on about her qualifications but I don't have the time. Keep her please!
Very nice and accommodating to all of our questions and concerns. Gentle with the baby.
overall a decent visit
Always willing to see us same day
Overall good experience
I'm very happy with this provider's care.
Ms. Andrea was wonderful with my daughter! Although my daughter was visibly scared and crying, Ms. Andrea talked to her calmly and made her feel at ease. I couldn't have been happier with the care she received.
very nice -- and thorough, thank you!
she was so kind and and caring are son an us
