Dr. Simpson is the best! He explained everything that would happen from the time I arrived at the surgical center, until the time I arrived back home. I was quite nervous going in, but after he explained everything, I trusted him 100%. He was always very nice, but most important, he is a very talented surgeon. I had my rotor cuff surgery 12/27/18, and finished with therapy at the beginning of March 2019. I feel great!! Thank you Dr. Simpson!

His main concern is about getting paid and not patient care. He's not very nice to his staff which tells alot about someone.

Saw Dr. David Simpson for a consult regarding ACL surgery. He was very thorough and attentive. He was extremely nice and professional. Answered all of my questions/concerns; he went over several medical records without hesitation and spent enough time with me. I would recommend Dr. Simpson.

Dr. Simpson performed surgery on my knee to repair a torn meniscus. He and his team did an excellent job with the surgery and the post-op follow-up. I have no reservations in recommending him and can attest to his professionalism, dedication, and courtesy.

Terrible doctor. I dislocated my shoulder twice. This second time he said that the emergency room doctor and the radiologist are morons and can’t do there job. He didn’t even look at X-ray from hospital. Has a bad temper when you question his diagnosis. Never a wait to see him, I always wondered why there was only one other person in waiting room every time I went. His ego is more important. Do yourself a favor go somewhere else.

My father had a surgery on 12/1/17 by Dr. Simpson at Bethesda Hospital. I could have not ask for a better surgeon for my father. he really did a good job and also a very caring doctor. If I would ever have to have a surgery I would choose to have it done by Dr. Simpson.

I broke my hip. I went to Bethesda East ER and was assigned to Dr. Simpson. Dr. Simpson took time to explain where the fracture was, and what options were available. Decided that a replacement 'neck and ball' was the best option for me. Dr. Simpson's staff in the OR was phenomenal as was the surgery. I was walking in less than 12 hours. Dr. Simpson had daily positive follow ups. The office staff was truly caring. I would 110% recommend Dr. Simpson and his staff to anyone needing Orthopedic care.

I just saw Dr Simpson this week. I found the office staff, his assistant and the doctor to be cordial and informative. The doctor told me what he found in my x-rays and exam and what were the best options. He described what he was doing before he did it. I don't understand the negative reviews. My experience was extremely positive.

Dr. Simpson did a shoulder replacement 2/4/17. He could not have been more caring. He answered any questions my family and I had. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Simpson did my arthroscopic hip surgery to repair my torn labrum. I am a young professional athlete with a high impact on my hips so it was imperative for me that this surgery was performed well. Today, I am 9 months post op and at this point my hip is perfect! He may not have the best bed side manner, but that isn't important to me. What is important are his skills and experience as a surgeon and they are spectacular. I recommend Dr. Simpson to all of my sports colleagues, he's that good.

Dr.Simpson & his staff were so friendly the 1st visit BUT on 2nd visit he was not only mean to me when he walked in & said "Why are you here? I told you I would never operate on your metal prong that broke off a piton anchor ."My initial surgery was 6 years prior with Pedro Piza who I didn't want to go back to & didn't sue.While waiting to pay my copay he started yelling at 2 different girls in front of me.The metal prong that broke off had nothing to do with what Piza did to me.I was crushed !!

Met Dr Simpson for the first time last week and liked him immediately. Went back today for my pre-op appt and liked him even more. He answered every question I had. Spent a lot of time with me and did not make me feel rushed at all. He put my mind at ease and I have so much confidence in him. His staff is great. They are all friendly and smile, which is a plus. I highly recommend him!!!

This was the worst experience with a doctor ever! He is degrading and a pompous jerk. Please read other reviews and know they are true. Anyone who respected this man's opinion has to be paid off. The worst part is his staff is just as unprofessional. Has no respect for others! Since I already had a surgery by another workmans comp Dr he said he could not help me. Told me my knee was not swollen and then said it was inflamed.

Everyone in the office is so friendly and call you by name and hugs you hello. They must make notes about personal comments you make because both the PA and the doctor asked specific question about how things were going. They tend to be on time and still manage to treat me like I was their only patient. Nobody likes going to the doctor, but Dr Simpson is a dr I don't mind going to.

Dr. Simpson is the reason my 16 year son felt comfortable having ACL Surgery. Surgery was at the end of October 2015. Today.....my son is back on the ice with full use of his knee! Dr. Simpson's bedside manner and professionalism during appointments....excellent!!

Dr Simpson operated on my hip 4 years ago and recovery was much faster and easier than expected. Dr Simpson is straight to the point and explains everything just as it is and is realistic with post op pain and recovery time, unlike many surgeons who candy coat what to expect. I am scheduled for shoulder surgery in a couple of weeks and know I will be in good hands!

Dr. Simpson may not have the bed-side manner many that downgraded him wanted. He doesn't sugar-coat and as a Biology major I don't want sugar coating; I am going to a doctor for honesty. All I can say is I had a totally blown out labrum and he fixed it. I didn't even need to take any of my pain meds. I was out of my sling within 8 days and back in the gym under 12 weeks. The only lingering thing about the surgery is a couple hard to see scars...my shoulder is perfect.
