I have had many experiences with doctors over my years, but I have never had a doctor/surgeon as great as Dr. Simpson. I did research on him before I selected him as an ortho doc and found him very qualified. Personality, connection, knowledge, ability to articulate so that I could understand all matter greatly to me, and he passed all with flying colors. He explained options to me and made his suggestion. Everything else is history and all went by with flying colors!!

I highly recommend Dr. Simpson with no reservation, whatsoever. I consider Dr. Simpson to be an outstanding physician in his area of expertise, spinal surgery. Dr. Simpson has gone over and above all reasonable expectations in assisting me with my spinal issues. It is my perception that Dr. Simpson is sincerely vested in the welfare of his patients. He is without a doubt the finest physician I have ever had in my entire life. I give him an A+ in every area. His entire staff are excellent as well

Dr.Simpson came highly recommended from other men at work. The more research I did about him, the confident I was about having him do my surgery. Dr. Simpson was absolutely fantastic. All the I'S were dotted and the T'S crossed. His communication was excellent, bedside manner was very considerater, and of course the surgery went well without complication and MINIMAL pain. Another impressive point was that his staff is just as courteous and kind as he is. This group is really a TEAM.
I have been having problems with my lower back for 6 years. Went to see Dr. Simpson as he was referred to me after being admitted overnight in the ER because of my back pain, and urinary incomtinence. He told me that while my S1 was degenerating, it may or may not be the causing my back pain and that I needed to loose weight and to stop making a mountain out of a mole hill as far as my pain was concerned. Needless to say, I'll be getting a second opinion.

This was my first visit and this Dr. was so rude I couldn't believe it!!!! I have never in my life met any Dr. that was so RUDE! Run away from him I had to wait over 2 hours they kept calling everyone but me. Then he joked about my age told me my weight was the cause of all my problems and then cut me off when I was asking him a question and told me I was rude and left the room!!!!! Unbelievable!!! I have to drive an hour and forty five minutes in horrible pain to sit and be degraded. Very sad !

Dr. Simpson is an excellent surgeon, extremely intelligent and highly skilled. He has performed miracles on my back when other surgeons were afraid to touch me. At this time, I have had a total of four lumbar surgeries. Dr. Simpson has performed the last two which were fusions with instrumentation. I was doing great until I fell before Thanksgiving. I am now looking at a fifth surgery but feel very confident that Dr. Simpson can again repair the damage.I would highly recommend him to anyone.

He will NOT listen to a word you say! He'll assume a lot, say gibberish, and then be confused when you try to explain your medical condition if he's never heard of it. Worse, he'll interrupt you and say he does know about it, then he'll later say he doesn't understand something. He won't listen though. He was very rude, disrespectful, and arrogant! TWO HOUR WAIT TOO!
