I first met Dr Sims in May 1981, I had been referred to him from one of his former fellows, Dr Don Brian. I had a chondrosarcoma of the left femur. I was an Orthopedic nurse at a hospital over a thousand miles away. Because of his knowledge and expertise along with his chief fellow that year Dr Gitalis and Dr Tee Clark, I am alive, intact with all limbs, had a family and have practiced as an RN for over 40 years. I rate Dr Sims as excellent!!

Saved my husbands life successfully removing pelvic chondrosarcoma w metal replacement, this kind of surgery only done by Dr. Sim @ Mayo Clinic.

Dr Sim was knowledgable, courteous, personable, and professional. He performed a CT biopsy on me and eased my worries with appropriate humor and had a genuine interest in me.
