1 Year after Open Whipple Surgery
Reviewed the 4th CT Scan after an Open Whipple Surgery on 6-11-2021. A slight growth has been detected near my liver, and a biopsy may be in order. Tumor markers are still low at 11 so Dr. Simon is referring the situation to the Tumor Board.

Dr Simon has treated me and is currently following me to assess any evidence of my cancer reoccurring. He is very personable and seems to care about my experiences very much. His staff are all kind and professional. I would recommend him anytime.

Dr, Simon has a very gracious spirit that is apparent in his gentle and sensitive treatment. It is a scary experience to be told you have cancer, for we all know it is life threatening. But when I met with Dr. Simon, his friendly greeting and straightforward statements were a reassuring comfort that made it obvious to me that he knew what he was doing, and that I should follow his recommendations for treatment.

First time seeing this doctor and he seemed good. My next yearly follow up is scheduled with a Nurse Practitioner and I don't know why. This wasn't mentioned during the appointment so I didn't have a chance to say I feel uncomfortable with this. Since I only have yearly follow ups for breast cancer that has a high recurrence score, I feel it important to get all of questions answered at my yearly appointments and to ask for new information that may impact my treatment. I am a 12 year survivor and I don't understand why I will no longer be seeing the doctor. Not happy. May need to change providers. I have been with Compass for a very long time and was very happy with my previous doctor who recently retired.

My first visit with Dr. Simon was a bit funny..I was diagnosed with Colorectal cancer after having a colonoscopy. I had no symptoms and so when he was asking the customary ?'s about symptoms and I answered no to all, he had to ask me how old I was to be having a colonoscopy.. apparently to him, I didn't look 50! Which is a compliment, but from there on we just kind of clicked. He is very attentive to his patients, gets to know them and treats them as an individual, not a just another "patient". He is great at following up, and the staff overall at Compass Oncology are so welcoming, it wasn't so scary going in for treatment.

Dr. Simon has been our partner in my husband's cancer plan for almost 2 years. My husband has had some rare and complicated circumstances that have arisen which have been dire. Dr. Simon was always researching the best options available on behalf of my husband. Dr. Simon consults with other doctors and weighs all the options thoroughly as we proceed with treatment. The relationship with an oncologist becomes deeply personal as the stakes are a matter of life and death. Dr. Simon is not only a brilliant doctor but a warm and compassionate person. We feel as if he has become a friend as well as a medical advisor.
