Dr. Siminovich is indeed a very skilled acupuncturist. VERY gentle and simply excellent in helping my body find balance. But as a Naturopath she is amazing. She has began as a bio chemist and has helped me find the best supplements that helped me sleep again and and start the recovery from the trauma of being a rescue worker at Ground Zero. I am slowly understanding the complex puzzle of my particular illness and with trust that with her help I can recover my well being fully. I am already much better and I am grateful to her for all her caring, compassionate and wise guidance and support.
The depth of her knowledge is impressive in western and eastern medicine. Nobody had taken the time to explain my condition before. I will not go to any other acupuncturist after being here. The advantage is that the treatments combine Acupuncture and Naturopathic Medicine a true holistic experience
I have had very good doctors and certainly some not very good ones. Dr. Siminovich is outstanding. She asks for and attends to details of medical history in a way that I have never experienced before. In an era in which doctors often triple book each hour and spend as little time as possible with patients, she stands out as an exception. Appointments are 45 minutes. She uses that time to really engage around the full spectrum of health and to provide, explore and explain options. THe end result is that I feel knowledgeable and feel empowered to make positive health decisions (as opposed to empowered to battle with my physician). Plus, I have seen results quite quickly. It also impresses me that she openly celebrates positive health changes with me. It is great to have a physician who is authentically invested in my health.
Dr. Siminovich was highly recommended to me by my coworker. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable. I was very impressed by the amount of time that she took with me. She explained everything thoroughly, and broke it down for me to understand why she recommends certain vitamins or supplements. I really appreciate that, because not a lot of docotors do that. She is extremely kind, and compassionate. She really does a good job at evaluating me as an individual and then looking at the bigger picture to determine what's going on. In my case, she was right on point. I had the accupunture. The problem is I hate needles. She was so good that I really didn't feel any of the needles. She is really very good at what she does. I live in NJ, and there are lots of people who do accupuncture right in NJ; however, She was so good, that it was worth the trip to take the train and go there. I plan to go back to her. To me it's worth it to invest in my health with a good doctor.
