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.
Adrienne was amazing. she took the time to answer a new moms questions and concerns. I never felt rushed. she was just a babydoll.
My sons loved Adrienne. She was super nice and talked to him on his level, which I appreciate.
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
Staff did not wash hands when entering the room.
This was the first time we saw Adrienne and we couldn't have been happier. She was very thorough and put my mind at ease about my daughters illness. Love this office and the staff.
love her! she's great!
Thank you for listening to what my 8year old had to say! He commented that to me that he liked how you listened and made him feel important.
all the doctors and staff have been extremely friendly with my family
we had another great experience with CCP Monroeville
we recently transferred to your practice and couldn't be happier!!!!
would never see this provider again
l love this office, the staff is wonderful. I've been with this office since my children were born I wouldnt go anywhere else and highly reccomend them! Thank you!!!!
Her wellness visit was the best experience we have ever had with CCP. The CNP knew her file without even looking at it in the room, she sat back and talked with us first and it was wonderful. I could not be happier.
The practitioner and nursing staff were wonderful!!!
Adrienne was extremely sensitive to the needs of my daughter. She took the time to make sure all aspects of my daughter's health care were attended to. Adrienne is a wonderful asset to the office.
Adrienne Simak was excellent with my kids, very knowledgable and easy to talk to. Highly recommend her!
The whole staff was amazing amd Adrienne was wonderful with my son. She has worked with my daughter as well in the past and we are very pleased with her.
My child really liked this provider.
Nurse and doctor did a great job making my son feel comfortable and used words to help him understand.
both my children go and we can not say enough about the office.
The doctors and nurses were very personable and did their best to diagnose my son's condition in accurately and in a timely manner.
We had really good experience with Adrienne Simak. It was our first time seeing her and my son really liked her. We will definitely request to see her again.
