What People Say About Dr. Michael Simonson, MD
Reply
Horrible - made me feel like post operative pain after 4 months was exaggerated and I was essentially told he had done his job. According to medical reviews 60% of post ventral hernia mesh repairs have complications and extended pain issues. I had to find myself someone more experienced and less arrogant.
