As a high level no-gi Brazilian Jiujitsu athlete who had to undergo ACLR, MCLR, and 2 stitches in my medial meniscus ... Dr. DeSimone is 2nd to none. He far exceeded my expectations. This is, and has been his life calling, and it showed in his extensive care every step of the way throughout my recovery. I felt as if it had been my own family looking after me from my initial consultation, to waking up after surgery, and throughout the rest of my recovery. I am forever grateful to have crossed paths with Dr. DeSimone. At a little over a year post-op, I am back successfully training at a hard intensity, and I can confidently say that I couldn’t have gotten here without Dr. DeSimone. Best wishes to him and his phenomenal staff.

I recommend Dr. De Simone if you need ACL surgery. My case was not easy as I had to require reconstruction of my ACL and two interventions. The doctor always spoke to me clearly and explained everything that each process required. After each surgery, the doctor called my husband to tell him how everything was. The doctor also called me to know how I felt. The entire team of doctors was very attentive and professional. I recommend it 100%

I saw Dr. DeSimone for a second opinion and was impressed not only with his staff and office, but with his knowledge, experience , and demeanor. He is honest and tells you the truth about your condition and CLEARLY explains your treatment plan. He truly is all about what is best for the patient, not what is best for him or his wallet. Thank you Dr. DeSimone you are an Angel!! May God keep you in his embrace always .

First came to see Dr D. and PA Bronson in October 2020 for shoulder pain. Concluded with having shoulder surgery in June 2021. Dr. D. and his staff have been nothing but exceptional. Taken there time to go over findings and ensured that I have been recovering well. Will continue to see Dr. D. for all orthopedic needs.

Came in earlier this year for a shoulder issue and was seen by Dr. DeSimone's PA Eric. Received excellent care and my issue was resolved quickly! He and the entire staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. Would definitely recommend!

I’ve been a patient of Dr DeSimone’s practice going on 20 years now. I’ve seen just about every physician in the office for just about every part of my body, from head to toe. every member of my immediate family also has been a patient for one thing or another. My experience with the Weston office continues to remain outstanding . This is not limited to Dr. DeSimone himself and certainly includes his office staff, PA’s, Medical Assistant’s & Colleagues. They always provide attention to my needs in every way. This last visit was no different, as I am dealing with additional knee issues. I recommend Dr. DeSimone and the other Physicians within the practice all the time with plans on continuing to do that without any hesitation . They Completely Rock!!! Thank You Dr D !!!

Dr. D did an amazing job on my shoulder. I am now a little over 2 weeks since my operation and the only thing that’s bothering me is the stiffness of my shoulder, but that’s normal. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. D and his team for your orthopedic needs, I am 100% satisfied!

Outer Meniscus and ACL – Jul 13, 2021

I have been going to Dr. DeSimone's office for about 15 years now. He repaired my meniscus back in 2006. His PA Eric is a valuable asset for that office. Eric drained my knee of excess fluids this past Thursday 07/01 after I aggravated it. Cannot speak highly enough of Dr. D's office and Eric they are the best.

Hurt my knee 2-1/2 years ago and contacted Sports Medicine & Associates. I opted for an injection in the knee and it helped immediately. Lasted for nearly 2 years, knee was stable and very little pain. Just came back and had another injection, hope this one works as well as the first.
