Ratings for Dr. David E. Simai
Dr. David Simai has been our pediatrician since he first opened his Cedarhurst practice over 10 years ago. We have entrusted Dr. Simai with our 6 most precious positions, our beautiful children..... and for good reason. During each and every appointment no matter how busy, Dr. Simai gives us his undivided attention, takes the time to answer questions, discuss any concerns we may have as well as check in about all the things going well with our kids. You always know that he genuinely cares and is interested. He consistently provides knowledgeable information, great feedback and suggestions and has a way of calming any fears over a situation. He is very engaging with our kids, talking to them on their level and always making them feel comfortable. Our children actually look forward to going to doctor's appointments to see Dr. Simai! This genuine concern is shown in so many ways. There here have been many times over the years when one of our kids were diagnosed with an illness and we've received a call from Dr. Simai at night or over a weekend just checking in to make sure that everything was ok. They say you can tell a Doctor by how his support staff treat you...This same culture of caring and service oriented attitude translates to his entire staff. We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Simai as our pediatrician and have recommended him to many of our friends and family and will continue to do so. Thank you Dr. Simai and the entire Cedarhurst Pediatrics team.
Our son was throwing up consistently for two years. We were told it was just bad reflux and he had to grow out of it. After moving and switching to Dr Simai, he told us to change our sons diet. Less dairy and to throw away his bottles. We were extremely skeptical because our son is a very picky eater and loves dairy. After a few days, he began to eat chicken, fish and even steak and meat!!! And....no throw up!!!! He does not drink milk and eats more protein. We are so so thankful to Dr Simai for finally guiding us to the solution of the problem. Thank you!!!!!
Dr. Simai is such an outstanding Doctor. My children are so lucky to be cared for by such a warm and loving Doctor who bends down for a hug when they come in! Dr. Simai will come into the office after hours just for me if I have an emergency. During our last well visit, Dr. Simai taught my son self-defense to help with bullying in school, and Dr. Simai did not end the visit until my son looked like he was ready to defend himself! He has given my children stitches with such patience and care. Another wonderful about him is that he always lets "mommy" know that she is doing a great job. Thank you, Doctor Simai, from the bottom of our hearts!
I have been bringing my kids to Dr. Simai for 4 years now. He is a wonderful doctor! We had situations that were more serious and he made good calls at the right time. I am thankful that we have been using him! He is intelligent, caring and concerned. He is also very patient, and answers all your questions. All and all we are very happy with him!

Dr. David E. Simai's response
This patient is clearly a disgruntled one. We have literally dozens of families switch to our practice and they often comment to us how friendly and helpful our practice is as a whole. The hard reality is that some patients are very disgruntled by nature, and maybe this parents should have realized that her old doctor was not the source of her problems. I hope and pray that this parent found a doctor that fits their personality and they will stay together happily for the rest of their live.

Dr. Simai is truly wonderful. He takes genuine care in treating his patients and treats everyone like they are one of his own. I have full confidence in his diagnostic skills and his experience. I do not hesitate to send my friends and family to him. His education and training are top notch and he's easy to talk to. Thank you!
