About me

Margaret Simon, M.D., completed medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she earned the Dean’s Scholarship in 2003 and traveled to Mexico in 2004 as part of the California-Mexico Health Initiative to help advance quality care for Mexicans living in the United States. Her interests included integrative medicine, improving care for the underserved, and championing family medicine. She completed residency at Natividad Medical Center in Salinas, CA, where she was Chief Resident and earned the Hannon-Lauderdale-Rumbel-Santell Memorial Award for outstanding performance during residency in 2010.

Dr. Simon spent 9 years in small physician-owned practices delivering high-quality, patient-centered care to families in the Salinas Valley. Most recently, she has worked with the primary care and urgent care teams at Kaiser Permanente in Watsonville, CA. She is Board Certified in Family Medicine and on the medical staff of Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital. She has been a
member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the California Academy of Family Physicians for 15 years.

Dr. Simon cherishes the time she spends with her patients. She believes that hearing their stories and actively listening to their concerns fosters a strong doctor-patient relationship that all patients deserve. She insists on providing thorough, high-quality, evidence-based medical care and strives to do so with compassion and humor.

Outside of her working hours, Dr. Simon enjoys spending time with her spouse, two young daughters, three dogs and several very pampered chickens. She enjoys being in her garden, where she grows food, fruit, and flowers. She loves surfing and boogie boarding with her family in the beautiful waters of the Monterey Bay. She also enjoys reading, quilting, and baking.
