Ratings for Dr. Aisha Simjee
Dr Simjee diagnosed me with macular degeneration and told me I had 5 yrs before I would be blind. She also diagnosed me with cataracts and wanted to schedule me immediately for surgery. I was devastated with the diagnosis as both my parents suffered from macular degeneration and I am very familiar with it. I have her diagnosis in writing. My primary care physician advised me to get a second opinion. I not only got a 2nd opinion but the primary care physician was able to get me a 3rd opinion as well. After having seen 2 specialists at that time, and 3 additional specialists since then, I do not, nor did I ever have macular degeneration. I also have NO cataracts. Every doctor I have seen has apologized for her diagnosis and just shake their heads. It is now 4 years later and my eyes are no different as the last time I saw her. With a recent change in my prescription for contacts, I see almost 20-20. This woman should not be practicing medicine. I hope she sleeps well at night.
Front desk receptionist is VERY unfriendly. I do like Dr. Simjee, however, my complaint about her is that she never washes her hands between patients. You can hear everything that happens in that office and it is clear that she examines one patient, and then moves right on to the next without washing her hands. She could be passing on eye infections, etc. They also have all patients make a second appointment to have a quick (literally one minute) test taken instead of just having you take the test when you come for your initial check-up. That way they can bill the insurance company for another office visit and collect another copayment. Also, with my insurance I do not have to pay for any diagnostic testing. I am supposed to pay my copayment ONLY for visits with the doctor. However, they have always charged me my copayment when I go back for the one minute test.
