Thank God we went to Dr DeSimone to have him look at my daughter and her shoulder injury. Another doctor wanted to do surgery when it wasn't needed. Dr. DeSimone suggested rest and therapy which we did. She just accepted a scholarship and signed her NLI to go to St John's River State College to play indoor and beach volleyball. Thank you so much Dr. Desimone.

Dr DeSimone did my meniscus repair arthroscopy. If I ever have any other issues with my knew I would not think twice about going to see him. He was extremely professional and caring. My recovery was super fast and after the surgery I did not have to take any medication (angel hands!). Also the outpatient surgery facility he uses is the best. Amazing doctor!

Professionalism, courtesy, attentiveness, customer care and attention to detail are the words that I use to describe Dr DeSimone and his entire staff. I was so impressed with their high level of professionalism during the last 5 months under his care, I recommended his practice to family members and co-workers. Truly made my experience a pleasant one... thank you!!!!

We knew we had to find a doctor who specialized in ACL surgery for young athletes. This team used petellar grafting rather than cadaver ACL. After reaching out to several people and doing a lot of research, we found Dr. DeSimone. Dr. DeSimone fixed our daughter's torn ACL and Meniscus and we had to travel over 2 hours to get to him. Eric Bronson, Paul Buchanan and Dr. DeSimone are an amazing team. Unfortunately, the front office did not want to accommodate us with our supplemental insurance.

After my first consultation with Dr. DeSimone, I could see why he was so highly recommended by my friend and doctor for my daughter's knee surgery. Very thorough, kept us informed and explained every aspect. Did not rush through things to get her back on the field. Made sure we understood risks and received the best follow-up for recovery. Staff was always quick to respond. Appointments easy to make and quick. Never waited long to see him which is unheard of nowadays. Awesome experience.

After injuring my knee last year and exhausting my options for a self recovery, I reached out to Dr. DeSimone. Initial office visit was followed by some tests and ultimately a scheduled surgery procedure to address and correct the injury. After an awesome therapy program in their Pembroke Pines Physical Therapy unit, I'm glad to say I feel great. Follow up with Dr. DeSimone and Eric (PA) was excellent and I'm back to my normal activities. Thank you so much.

I was referred to Dr. DeSimone for injuries incured as the result of being hit from behind at approximately 40 mph by an inattentive driver. Both vehicles were written off as total loses. I suffered a variety of injuries typical of such an impact. In light of pre-existing athletic injuries, the damage and pain that resulted were more severe than would generally be expected. Despite my initial misgivings, Dr. DeSimone's conservative approach proved correct, sparing me unnecessary pain & expense

Dr. D was amazing! He did a ton of work after bicep was shredded in a motor vehicle accident and my rotator cuff was damaged. He is awesome!

After two previous unsuccessful knee surgeries, I was referred to Dr. D. Its been four years since he preformed my third. Thank god for his referral, I have been pain free, returned to training and have no existing issues. In addition his bedside manner was exceptional, unlike many other doctors. I have sent several other co-workers and friends to see him when needed, all of which have been completely happy with their results.
