Dr. Simon performed a routine outpatient vasectomy for me. Within a month, a very debilitating hydrocele formed in the surgical area. When Dr. Simon examined the hydrocele, his feedback that "these things can happen" and that "lots of men live with hydroceles". He recommended that I wait six months to see if it would resolve itself. Two months after the vasectomy, the hydrocele seemed to be growing rapidly, and I called Dr. Simon's office in a panic to schedule a follow up. The receptionist took down my info, but no one from Dr. Simon's office returned my call or followed up or to check on my recovery. I ultimately had the hydrocele corrected by another, excellent, local urologist. This surgery was very traumatic and debilitating, resulting in 6 months of recovery and significant pain (which is typical for hydrocele removal). Nearly a year after my vasectomy, there has still been no follow up from Dr. Simon. This experience shows that he at best does not really care about his patients.

Hello, we were very sorry to read your review. We...Read More
I had briefly met Dr Simon the day before my surgery. My surgeons, Dr. Paul Hyde & Dr. Bridgett Duggan (excellent doctors!) had asked for Dr. Simon to insert stents into my uretur - I wasn't exactly sure why and truthfully it didn't matter. I was headed for a bowel resection and a total hysterectomy the next day. Long story short - both of my dream team surgeons individually told me that Dr. Simon saved my life. I'm not sure of the details but I am sure that I'm thankful for his expertise!
