I have been a patient at Mid America for 13 years plus. I began my treatment with DR Steven Simon and see him as a wonderful man and as a good practitioner in his area of expertise. Dr Simon is not found in a typical clinic that requires x-rays and testing for the purpose of spinal injections or implants. What I know is Dr Simon's doctorate studies were pharmaceutical. For this need pain management I have and would recommend Dr Simon.
in Grandview, MO |
Sure they will accept anyone as a patient but will not take care of any pre-authorizations that need to be done and usually take 3-6 days to return phone calls. The assistants in the office are very unorganized and untrained....didn't know many questions I asked, where supplies were, or how to do procedures. I was passed off to someone else many times for this.

Poor bedside manner. Very arrogant.

dr simon sold out to to another in the practice, they have gone to a one size fits all approach. they are reducing all patients to 200 mg or equivalent per day. they are telling patients that take benzos for seizures, PTSD, panic attacks, or part of pryor pain management that they have to make a choice , benzos or pain meds, they can't take both. the nurse practitioners say the doctor in forcing their hand on this, this place has become a poor excuse for a pain clinic , they blame it on the CDC
Paxico, KS |
Never would recommend Dr. Simon to anyone I care about. Dealing with this office will cause someone a heart attack. 90% of the time he doesn't bother to show up for appointments. When he does he will dictate his notes instead listening to the patient. The PA's you'll see instead are ignorant and can't make a decision. The office staff is totally rude. Don't understand why they haven't been shut down yet.
Paxico, KS |
Doesn't show up to his appointments and patients have to see a PA which can't make a decision. You then hear we will give you a call which never happens. If Dr. Simon bothers to show up for that 1 appointment out of 10 he gives you a phony greeting and within 2 min is sitting down to dictate his notes. If I call the? office I never get a live person , after 3 messages I might get 10 days later a call back or not depending on their mood I guess.
St Louis, MO |
My Dr sent a referral over. I left 3 messages over a 2 month period. Never got a phone call to even schedule a appointment. RUN!!!
in kansas city, mo |
Is never there. Cancels appointments the same day causing his patients to have to wait ridiculously long times to meet with other doctors in the office. Those doctors are rude to us because they didn't know that Simon had cancelled AGAIN. The whole office is a circus.
