“Dr. Simon changed my life. First, it was obvious to him how bad I had been suffering and the heightened level of allergies I was experiencing. Now I told him what I thought was going one and he said, let’s do some testing. Upon testing, it really backed up what I thought but was a surprise to both of us. Not only did he spend time educating me he gave me a plan of attack. Now here is where it gets even better. The plan of attack didn’t work. And after really fighting to make it work for 6 months, I went back in. He didn’t make me feel like I wasn’t trying hard enough. He and I spoke further and discussed a new plan of attack and some different treatment options. They worked. I’m a new person. My quality of life is 100 x’s better and it is honestly all because he really listened to me and took what I had to say, and also spent the time educating me. Dr. Simon is an amazing well versed allergist. I’m a raving fan!” – Windus Fernandez Brinkkord
