What People Say About Dr. Thomas Simopoulos, MD

He is an arrogant, dismissive jerk, horrible bedside manner, takes about 120 seconds and then is out of the room. He did not answer my questions. He dismissed my pain and did not help with a diagnosis. His fellow was wonderful though. I went in for pain and he actually made it worse not better. Zero compassion.

I am a happy patient of Dr. Simopoulos. I had spine surgery by one of the best, if not the best spine surgeon around, Dr. Kevin McGuire. Unfortunately, I waited a little to long and ended up with permanent nerve damage in my leg. We tried everything to control the pain but taking medication for the rest of my life was not an option that I was willing to accept and Dr Simopoulos was willing to give it everything he had to help me out. I now receive caudal injections that work with time.

A pt. of Dr. Simopolous for the last 4 years, I find myself so thankful each day for the pain relief that I would otherwise not know had I not been referred to the finest pain physician I've known. It is worth mentioning that I had seen many MDs for severe, relentless leg pain for a condition known as RSD or CRPS-the worst pain ever! All my MDs work together but Dr.Simopoulos, referred byDr. Soni and Dr.Brian McKeon came highly recommended. My pain is managed from every angle,every season!Best!!
