Patient Comments (4)

no empathy for a patient in pain..i felt very rushed and hushed on each visit..whole office is lacking in the 'follow through' department..i will not go back, searching for another more personable specialist.

Great if you already have an outside diagnosis and just need to have a cast fitted or similar; my kid had a broken arm and Dr. Simpson set the cast in a way that realigned the bones and avoided surgical repair. Good outcome thanks to his skill. Not good at diagnosing injuries. He said he didn't...more

I was glad I came to dr. Simpson he was not in a hurry to rush to surgery and tried every avenue to avoid it at my request and he listened to everything I said and even consulted with another surgeon about me. I'm still in healing procrss but I'm very glad that I went to Dr. Simpson.

Productive visit. He clarified what was happening with my shoulder and was interested in what I had to say. He's the first dr. Who didn't say to me that I would just have to live with the limitations and pain.
