One word for Dr. Simon, FANTASTIC.
in Darien, CT |
I have been going to Dr. Simon for over 5 years now. He consistently comes up with new ways to help my chronic back pain when there seems to be no options available. He has called on weekends and holidays to check in and discuss MRI results. He is willing to call other affiliated doctors in order to do specific procedures.Not only is he extremely personable and patient, but he also truly cares about each patient and takes the time to understand the pain and discusses all the possible options.
