I understand that we came in during the walk ins time but we were the first patient that morning and we waited a very long time after the nurse taking notes left the room. Then about 20 -25 mins later doctor came in saw my son then said they were swabbing him. Nurse came in swabbed said it takes 6 mins..we waited another 20-25 mins for doctor to come back with results.
she was wonderful!
best play ever
Adrienne is fantastic with our little one! being 1st time parents, she is always great with us too!!

The doctor was so great with kids and went out of her way to make sure my daughter was comfortable. I definitely will request to see her again because I really liked her.
It was our first time at this office and it was a great experience. Very happy we switched.
the staff in the office of Monroeville CCP is always amazing . We never seen this provider before, but hope to see her again. She was very thorough. very impressed.
this provider has always been great with my daughter and I feel much better leaving the office
miss Adrienne is always very pleasant and great with my girls!!! we usually see dr. falcon but if she isn't available Adrienne is definitely our next favorite!! she's knowledgeable and always answers all my questions! she is an all around great provider!!!
love this office, I'm not picky when it comes to who the doctor/physicians assistant is for his wellness visits but I was very pleased with the girl we had this time.
She is aware of my daughter's history with food allergies and was able to recommend the name of a other specialist. She listened to all of my concerns and I was very appreciative.
Adrienne has always been so warm and welcoming with our daughter- the entire office staff make what could be a stressful situation into a positive one- and when your child likes going to the doctor- it makes your life easier as a parent! so thank you!
I was impressed with Ms. Simak. She was very thorough, perhaps the most thorough provider we have seen in this office. we would be happy to see her again.
I love my child care provider all the nurses and doctors and staff are friendly and out going
Dr.Simak is a wonderful physician. She spent a lot of time going over all of his symptoms and looking him over carefully. I left the office with a clear understanding of what was happening with my child. Dr.Simak was very thorough and very kind. My 3 month old son smiled at her the whole time. She and all the staff are wonderful.
Adrienne and the nurses/assistants are wonderful. They have a nice way of interacting with my son - getting him involved in the appointment and helping him feel comfortable with his fears of vaccinations. it was a great visit!
Adriene is always absolutely amazing and caring. she really listens to your needs and gives you the time you need & deserve.
Adrienne is amazing and is always willing to talk to me about my concerns. I really like having her as a backup to Dr. Falcon.
Very friendly and great with both my children. She even answered my older childs questions, and spoke to her so she understood what was going on.
great bedside manner with both my child and myself!
This visit was a follow-up to an ER visit on Sunday, 6/16/19 which determined that I had Lyme Disease. The hospital recommended that we see the pediatrician. During our visit the provider gave us more information about this disease and told us why she was ordering additional tests. We left the office with a better understanding of what to expect during the recovery period. I appreciate her taking the time to make me better informed about my illness.
my daughter loved Adrienne and wants to see her all the time now
This was our first visit with our newborn and we couldn't have been happier with the Adrienne. We're very thankful!
I love CCP Monroeville. All health care professionals are competent and very pleasant. They make going to the doctor's enjoyable for my daughter.
She was great with our son, very caring and emphatic.
I drive past 2 different Community pediatrics on my way to the White oak office. I'd rather make the extra special trip just so I can have my daughter seen by Adriane. she is very kind. Smart, and always respectful. she makes the visit relaxing and not stressful, as they could somtimes be hectic visits. i trust that my daughter's health is in good hands when we are there.
very kind and helpful
Adrienne has gone above and beyond to check in on my daughter's health and my well being after an unanticipated new diagnosis. She is caring, compassionate, and truly provides the best possible care for her patient's and their family's.
I had to wait a very long time on hold before I was able to speak with someone. We were there for approximately 30-45 minutes before we seen the dr. The appointment was at 2pm and we didn't leave until 3:30.
Adrienne is wonderful, as are all of the doctors and nurses at CCP Monroeville. they all listen and answer all of my questions, and their scheduling couldn't be easier. They always have an available appointment time.
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.
