Told me I needed my disc replaced or I wouldn't be able to walk, Never offered or recommended physical therapy..... After I healed on my own, I went back and asked why I was never offered physical therapy, they kicked me out of their office. Don't trust these people.... Don't sign the paperwork where they say you can't get a second opinion. Any doctor who asks that has compromised morals.

The first appointment with Dr. Simonson left us feeling almost in an adversarial situation: he was rushed, gruff, blunt, had not reviewed any imagery beforehand, and in general he exhibited a poor attitude in this initial visit. Left a bad impression on us that hasn't improved after the second appointment.
