“Dr. Simons was great. He is an excellent listener. He gave me two options in regards to my knee. However, I chose surgery to fix all of my issues. I have never felt so confident and excited about having surgery. I know the recovery is rough; hence, a knee replacement isn’t a walk in the park. His knowledge of every question helped my wife, and I feel comfortable.”

“I required a do-over of a prior knee replacement. When I first went to Dr. Simons, I was an emotional mess after losing my husband to pancreatic cancer. He was able to calm me and let me know it was something I should not delay for very long. So as soon as my life was back in order, I scheduled my appointment with Dr. Simons and prepared for the surgery on April 10th. The operation was very successful. However during my hospital stay since I passed out a few times, he orders a CT scan and discovered I had a large meningioma tumor, As a result of his ordering the CT scan, I had successful surgery on July 4th, for complete removal of cancer. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Simons. I would refer anyone to him for knee surgery.”
