Patient Comments (2)
in Davie, FL |
Dr. Simon has been my orthopedic doctor for about 20 years. He is great at fixing various injuries I have had over the years, and is superior at not only diagnosing the problem, but finding a remedy that works for me. At one point I prematurely stopped going to physical therapy and Dr. Simon took the time to ask me why, and to find a rehab sports clinic perfect for me. He takes into account my specific needs and genuinely cares for his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Simon!
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Worst experience I have ever had with any doctor. Had me come in for multiple appointments after we agreed surgery was the best and only option. Spoke to me in a condescending way, and carried himself with an arrogance that would never want me to trust him with performing a surgery. Would under no circumstances see this doctor again.
