Dr. Simons and his staff are the best. I am happy with the epidurals I have had and I am confident that he is the Doctor that preforms these the best.
Bellevue, KY |
Awful experience. I felt more like a science project than a patient. Every visit I had with him, he'd change my meds even though I told him what seemed to work and what didn't. Just very confusing. Then he'd accuse me of self medicating if I questioned him. He's a buffoon. A silly little man with a certificate on the wall. Anytime you go to the office its over booked. Very long wait for patients who actually need the help as opposed to the basic drug addicts looking for narcotics. Stay Away!
in Covington, KY |
The sorriest excuse for a doctor that I've ever encountered. Horrible all around. Just looking to kake a quick buck.

I wouldn't take my dog to Dr. Simons (and I use that term loosely)! He's only concerned about getting ppl in and out and getting paid. The most rude and unprofessional staff I have ever encountered. NO ONE cares about the patient, seek treatment elsewhere.
in Florence, KY |
I've seen Simons for over a year and a half. In that time, I have come to the decision that he lacks the morality that one expects from a medical doctor. I let him bully me into surgery that I did not want and had him hold my medication hostage if I didn't start using the device he implanted, which had moved and no longer affected the correct area of my spine. I have been routinely over charged for times when I only saw the PA. I have so much more to say but no room. DO NOT SEE HIM!!
Very distrusting assumes every new patient is just looking for pain meds once he gets MRI results he automatically wants to do injections until he can't do anymore then he tells you he has to install a stim unit and if you refuse he won't see you anymore. Comes across as only interested in getting money not getting you out of pain.
