Ratings for Dr. James P. Simsarian
I have been his patient for over ten years. He listens, he learns about you, he takes every avenue to help you (even other docs and non-traditional media if it might help). Reassures by informing. Diagnosed me in the ER. Yet, I took two trips to Hopkins to be sure. I returned to him to work on my disabling pain. He is open yet extremely capable and WILL FIGHT FOR YOU ON PAPER where needed and warranted. You could not have a better physician.
This is my fathers Neurologist and he is a LIFE SAVER!! He and his staff have helped my dad to recover some memory and motor function after early on set Alzheimer and two strokes! I am very pleased with their services and would RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!! And have for that matter!!
With a brief, perfunctory exam he diagnosed RSD in my leg (a rare neurological condition). An experienced neurologist should have readily recognized that I had advanced cellulitis, not RSD. The undiagnosed cellulitis caused the complication of disabling, disfiguring lymphedema which I will have for life.
I have fibromyalgia (I hate that name) He and I have worked to help me live my life to its fullest. When I talk with him I have his complete attention. I have chronic pain everyday, but most people never hear about it. We are managing it and we are attempting to do better than that. He has referred me to other doctors and we try more ideas. If anyone can help me, I believe he cares enough to help me not have to live in as much pain. He is the only Neurologist I have ever seen who has been helpful. I wish him and his staff all the best!

Dr Simsarian is a great Doctor. Very intelligent and his nurse Carol is wonderful. I found him after going to 6 other neurologists in the area. His clinic is very professional, tho parking is a mess there. His bedside manor is good-- not the warmest doctor in the world- but by far the best I have found so far in NoVA... If you want someone to baby you with your illness he is not the doctor for you- but if your like me- your going to have a hard time finding that
Dr. Simsarian was very nice. I understand he is a great doctor, but I felt rushed in his appointments. He kept flip-flopping his diagnosis, so I really am confused as to what is going on. I have since moved, so I cannot comment on the continued care. I do know, at my last appointment, I felt not as comfortable since he rushed me and was abrupt.
