Repaired my left rotator cuff and regained 100% function. I would recommend him to anyone. As far as the overall practice that is another issue. I paid all of my pt out of pocket and when they got reimbursed by my insurance I had a 2500 dollar credit which they refused to refund.

Dr Simovich is the best Dr I have ever been to . Takes time to listen to you . My surgery and recovery was 100 percent better than the last surgery I had for my other rotator cuff surgery . After surgery I've never had to take a pain pill I would recommend him to anybody .

Unimpressed. Although my symptoms have worsened, I'm having more pain, increased weakness, the radiology report for my body part and a second opinion have discovered a significant tendon tear, retraction and infection, Simovitch says I am fine and everything in the MRI is normal. For someone who treats athletes, he should have some clue that athletes know their bodies and when they have declining performance (can't lift a coffee cup to face), there's a problem. It would help if he cared more.

I had a total shoulder replacement in 2013 and not only did Dr. Simovitch take his time and answer all my questions, but he is also put my mind at ease. He is a very compassionate physician and I wish we had more doctors like him. I have 100% use of my shoulder now and am so grateful for his continuing care. I highly recommend Dr. Simovitch to anyone contemplating shoulder surgery.

Dr. Simovitch, first and foremost, is extremely competent at what he does. I can't imagine someone being better at it. Some of the reasons for that competence is where he got his formal education and where he did his residency. However, in addition to that, he appears to remain an ongoing student in pursuit of the best way to do the surgeries, which blockers to administer and why, which meds to use if patients have issues with certain ones, etc. Also, his communication skills are really superb

I would like to sincerely thank Dr. Simovitch for giving me my life back. He and his staff are the best. I had a total shoulder replacement done. I had suffered for years as it got worse and worse. I went to Dr. Simovitch who assured me if I followed what he told me and did the therapy prescribed I would get 90% use of my shoulder back which I couldn't imagine after having maybe 10-20% before surgery. 5 months later I have 90-95% back. I would sincerely recommend Dr. Simovitch. Thank you again!

I presented to Dr Simovitch with a catastrophic injury of my rt rotator cuff after a fall while hunting in Argentina. The extent of the injury required the expertise of the ultimate in shoulder specialist, and Dr Simovitch's correction of my injury reflected his truly superior surgical abilities. I have now regained essentially full function of what was a useless extremity prior to his reverse total shoulder replacement. BTW I am a retired physician with 40+ years of judging MD's!

As a physician (M.D.) I feel eminently qualified in assessing the competence, professionalism, and bedside manner of another physician. Dr. Simovitch was outstanding in every aspect of my visit with him. We discussed my shoulder issue on both a lay person level and on a colleague-to-colleague level, and in both roles he was sterling in his approach to me as a patient. Relaxed, affording as much time as necessary to answer all questions, and in every respect to be highly recommended.
