I had my gallbladder removed by Dr. Simon. Being the nervous person that I am, Dr. Simon reassured me that everything would turn out fine and explained to me what I should expect after the surgery. Everything happened just as Dr. Simon explained and I am very pleased with that. There were no complications with my surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Simon for anyone undergoing surgery.

My experience was not a good one. Dr. Simon was more worried about what kind of benefits I had and if I would be covered for my testing than what I was actually there to see him for. He seemed to be disinterested in using the existing test results I had claiming he didn't trust them when in actuality they were conducted from a reputable source. I can't refer anyone to see him.

Overall I was pleased with my vein procedure experience & Dr. Simon was very helpful in explaining my vein issues with me & the steps necessary to correct my problem. Due to the timing of when I initially came to him (October), it was difficult to get my appointments scheduled promptly but I was able to get both legs done before the end of the year which was acceptable. I did have issues with my billing when I compared my charges to the claim forms from UHC so working through those now.
