06/11/11 5 5 5 5 Peope who do not trust Dr. Sim are very ignorant and lucky that nothing important happened to their health. Dr. Sim is the most intelligent,caring and smart gynecologist in the whole world and yes DO believe me. It is a shame that he does not deliver babies anymore. Yes, his office is small and may look dirty but you will never meet someone as knowledgable as him. You want great advice, you want to know what is wrong with you, you want to know anything you see Dr. Sim.  Respond

13/06/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Sim is by far the best doctor that my daughter and I have ever had. He delivered her 28 years ago and he is extremely knowledgeable and capable. Despite the fact that his office is untidy, he and his staff know exactly what they are doing.He has known exactly what to do when other doctors knew nothing!Yes, he might boast but he has good reason to.He is the most dedicated and altruistic doctor there is! No one has more experience than he is! We do NOT want him to retire! He's the best!He is available to his patients day or night, seven days a week.  Respond

07/03/11 2 2 2 3 He may be a good OBGYN but he is rude and will tell you that he does not appreciate it if your family doctor refers you for mamogr or other tests. He has no patience and his office is dirty. He should not have been allowed to resume his practice after his stroke. He should be inspected by the Ontario College of Physicians.  See Responses

07/03/11 5 3 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Sim for 28 years and had two sons that were born under his watch. He is by far the smartest and most dedicated doctor that I have ever had. I am a Professional and I hold the title of CEO, therefore I hold high expectations of people that care for me or my family. As I read some of the comments about Dr. Sim I am amused by the comments that state that Dr. Sim's office is dirty and the staff is not friendly. The office is not dirty, it is messy big difference and the staff has always been excellent with me. Dr. Sim is by far the most knowlegeable and dedicated OBG in the National Capital Region. He has always been available day and night and weekends for his patients! He has saved an incredible amount of lives in this city. So, let me end my comment with this: "Are you looking for talent?" If so, Dr. SIM is the best! He deserves the respect he has earned as a true doctor devoted to his patients!  Respond

12/07/10 2 1 2 2 I'm trying to figure out how anyone could stand to tolerate an office that was so utterly, completely unclean. Boxes of clothing, paperwork, dirty rags, dust, more boxes, dark, etc.; I was so unnerved by my experience I left before my appointment began. The receptionist was bizarre and unprofessional. I'm sure he may be a knowledgeable OBGYN, but I didn't stick around long enough to find out. Truth be told, I'm astounded.  See Responses

02/12/09 3 1 5 5 I have beein seeing Dr. Sim for the past 4 years and I think he is the greatest! He speaks about himself and his struggles because he is CONFIDENT and proud of his work (Which he should be) Considering he is probobly the only Doctor I have ever heard of that personally emails his patients within a day no less, he gives out his cell phone number incase of emergency and will see you immediately if needed. He will explain and draw diagrams for your FULL understanding. It may be a long wait, but his patients wait because he is a great Doctor and he takes his time and gives you his full attention. As far as I am concerned he should be classified as a Hero because he is one of a kind, and lives for his job. His office may be un organized but that is because he spends less time worrying about how perfect his office looks and more time worrying about the problem... His patients. Dr. Sim is the greatest doctor I have ever heard of or seen.  Respond

05/11/09 5 3 5 5 I have had many problems conceiving. I went to see many dr's who told me I could have a child. Finally I called Dr Sim. If it weren'T for him I wouldn't be pregnant today. He treated me without using ANY drugs! All natural. He is extremely knowledgable - A very smart man. At first the office seems dirty, but it's in a really old house. If you actually just sit back and look around, you'll notice that it's not dirty, just eccentric in it's own way. Dr. Sim does things differently. He has his own opinons on things and is a good listener. He's the best Dr. I've ever had.  Respond

05/08/09 1 3 2 4 I was 19 years old when I foudn out I was pregnant and was sent to Dr. Sim for an abortion. Luckily, I changed my mind and kept the baby. Dr.Sim ended up dilevering my baby by C-section. he told me my boy was breech at 37 weeks and that there was no chance he would turn. He did NOT offer to turn the baby or to wait as an alternative. He pushed me into a c-section, had it scheduled before I even made a decision to go ahead with it. It was the worst experience of my life! The baby was born way to early and I took forever to heal. Plus, I contracted scabies fromt eh hospital and Dr. Sim told me to use Tiger balm on the bites..huh? He did not make a big deal out of it at all. He does circumsicions very well but over charges. His office is SOOOOOOO dirty, if the is that dirty, I dont think I want him touching me or operating on me in any case. His staff are so rude, and totally unprofessional. I had 2 other children and did NOT return to him and guess what, I did end up having a VBAC!  Respond

24/06/09 5 4 5 5 I have had Dr. Sim as a doctor for over 25 years. He delivered both my children. He has been there for everything including an ectopic pregnancy which was cleared up in emergency surgery at 11 at night. I then had my second child. Yes he talks about himself, office a bit dirty, he is a genious and is extremely knowledgagble in what he does and does think outside of the box. Doesn't always do things the way other doctors do, we need more doctors like him. he saved my life i just can't thank him enough for his dedication.All doctors have had things that go wrong, it happens unfortunately. Dr. Sim has just been around longer more to go wrong but at the same time more to go right there are a lot of people walking around and alive because of him.  Respond

26/05/09 4 5 5 5 I'm a big, big fan of Dr. Sim's. I've seen him for over 20 years, and he delivered my son with ease. I've had a tubal with him, numerous pap's and he spends lots of time with every patient. Dr. Sim really cares. He works from home, sees patients after hours, and it feels like a real "small town doctor." He has pictures of babies everywhere, his wife is often playing her harp outside, so if you want a conventional office this isn't for you. He was the only physician in town who fitted women with cervical caps, he still takes patients without a referral, and is a compulsive couorse taker. Better trained than most doctors in town. I fully endorse him and think he's a fabulous physician. And he has very, very small hands. Smile.  Respond

09/04/09 5 3 5 5 Although Dr. Sim is a bit eccentric verging on weird, and the place is dirty, I found him to be a fine doctor and the service is good too. He does tout himself to be the best and shows you lots of paperwork to prove it as someone else observed, but I never had any provblems with thim.  Respond

16/01/09 2 2 5 5 Dr Sim does come in on weekends and also Holidays...he delivered my first child on a holiday. I went to his office many times at night as a favour to me when I had young children and had to wait for my husband to come home from work. He does think outside the box and is a superb listener which is half or more of being a good diagnostician. His office is very messy and disorganized, but I believe it to be hygenic. He delivered both of my children and was always there in all circumstances even with my general health. In my opion he has made a substantial contribution to medicine. Dr Sim certainly seem to care in all my dealings with him.  Respond

28/01/08 2 2 3 3 Dr. Sims has been my OB for about 23 years now.. he delivered both my daughters...I do agree with other posts that his office is dirty and staff is not that friendly. However, I trust Dr. Sim - has I received to operations from him and all went well... The only fall back I have is he is always late at his appointments.. but hey these days aren't all doctors late for their appointments.  Respond

31/07/07 2 4 2 1 In 2005, I was trying to have a baby and when I felt I had all the symptoms of pregnancy but that the test was still negative, I went to a walk-in clinic in montreal where Dr. Sim was working. After spending over 45 min telling us how wonderful he was and how he was always right and everyone else wrong, he performed a full exam and told me there was no way I was pregnant, and that, I had an ovary kyst. He sent me for an ultrasound 4 weeks later and told me that if the report came back that I was pregnant, he would put it in the garbage. I went to the exam and, to my surprise, I could see my baby on the screen and his heart beating. No ovary kyst. 8 weeks pregnant. 1 week later I went back to see him and he admitted that I was pregnant. He then told me that he was not allowed to follow up pregancies in Quebec and that to find another doctor. I would never recommend this dr. He spent to much telling me how great he was and put me in a very stressful situation.  Respond

22/05/07 1 3 5 I had an ectopic pregnancy and by luck of the draw, I was assigned Dr. Sim for emergency surgery. Through microsurgery, he was able to save my tube... and at the time I felt lucky. He did not, however, explain I was at risk of developing issues as a result of having the surgery... and as it turns out my tube ended up twisted and I had adhesions, etc. When I visited him for infertility some years later he automatically assumed it was my husband (it wasn't) so he didn't test me at all and fed me fertility meds without doing any testing (ultrasounds, blood work) that should be done while on those drugs. While he may be very adpet at microsurgery, he falls short with follow-up, sharing information, etc. - and, as another poster said, he spends too much time bragging. His front office staff is among the rudest I have ever dealt with.  Respond

15/05/07 2 4 4 Where do I start. I went to Dr. Sim for several years, he was my OB for all 3 children. As mentioned below, his office is very dirty and yes, would remind you of a back alley abortion clinic. He is the first to tell you how wonderful he is and that you would be putting yourself and your baby at risk if you went to anyone else as he is the best they come. He will pull out lots of "documentation" to prove this. He very often bucks the typical way to doing things and will tell you that the rest of the medical profession is wrong, but will always leave the decision up to you. This puts you in a bit of a predicament, as most of us are not Ob/gyn's and don't have the knowledge to choose whether he's right or the rest of the medical profession is. He always took lots of time with me, really got to know me and I never felt like a number. You want to believe that he is as good as he says he is, but sometimes things just don't sit right. Just go in with your eyes open.  Respond

11/04/07 3 5 5 I have had Dr. Sim as my gynecologist for about 12 years or more, and am totally satisfied with his care. While I was in the hospital awaiting an operation he went out of his way to assure I was comfortable. He has always given me satisfactory care.  Respond

02/03/07 5 5 5 I had the pleasure of being referred to Dr. Sim from North Bay, I couldn't have asked for better! Have referred several friends to go to him. The best care I have had in years and was great with myself and my family at a very trying time. Had everything lined up for me to have tests done in the hospital overnight. It was unbelievable actually. Even phoned after I got home in North Bay to see how I was! More than the North Bay Drs. do. What a wonderful man and Dr. Can't say enough great things about him.  Respond
