I recently had my gallbladder removed from Dr. Simon. He was highly recommended and I can see why. At my first appointment, he was very thorough and sat down with my husband and I to answer all of our questions. DJ, his office assistant was so efficient to get me on the surgical schedule promptly. While at the hospital, Dr. Simon took the time to meet with me before and after surgery. Finally, for the most important part, I have had phenomenal results! Quick recovery & minimal scarring!

Dr. Simon was very knowledgeable about the problem I was having. He spent time with me explaining what needed to be done, what to expect during the procedure and what to expect afterward; His staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go to him again.

Dr. Simon was my surgeon for inguinal hernia repair. He explained everything in detail. He is easy to talk to & assessable. On Monday his staff set up everything with Spring Valley for Thurs. surgery. His staff is friendly, professional and efficient. The surgery went well. I did not have any pain post surgery. Upon post surgery exam all seemed well. My son recommended this doctor and I am glad he did. If I ever need another surgery I would go to Dr. Simon.

Dr. Simon performed a laparoscopic cholecystectomy on me in late August 2017. During my pre surgery consult, he explained the plan and goal of surgery in great detail and reassured me that I would recover a week later. He's professional, yet funny and has great bedside manner,

I would highly recommend Dr. Simon. He is an excellent surgeon. Very friendly. Takes his time answering questions and made me feel comfortable. His staff is also very friendly, courteous and helpful. Can't say enough good things about my overall experience with Dr. Simon and his staff.

Had appendix rupture. He was the on call surgeon at St Rose Siena. Scheduled follow-up appointment with the dr for about 2 weeks later. Was still in obvious pain. Told him it hurts to sit for more than 20 minutes (sit all day for work) and still can't lift more than 20lbs. Told him a few more days off is needed to perform job. The doctor didn't care. Disability got denied because of what he said to them. He didn't even care to listen. Was too busy talking with his medical students.

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.
in Las Vegas, NV |
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.
in Henderson, NV |
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.
