Dr. Sima is a perfectionist in the best sense. He gave me a new knee 2weeks ago and I am recovering swiftly. He has thought of everything from Physical Therapy before surgery to at home therapy post op for a successful rehab. A very exceptional doctor with a vision of complete and personal outcome. He cares! Thank you, Dr. Sima. I love my new knee!!!

My husband contracted a very serious bacteria, "Puesdomonas" & 2 other bacterias during a surgery Dr. Sima did on my husband's fractured humorous on 1/18/11. After Dr. Sima brushed him off for over 9 mo. My husband ended up in Seattle, WA. on 11/18/11 to have his shoulder opened up & 3 bacterias were found during surgery. Today, 2016, 5 yrs. later, my husband has no cartilage, on pain meds & for the rest of his life on 500 mil. antibiotic everyday. Never a call back or apology from Dr. Sima

My 92 yr. old Mother went to see Dr. Sima for painful corns & calluses. Surgery is not an option due to her poor circulation, she was advised to purchase an arch support insert. He didn't offer to have the callus shaved give her relieve from the pain she's been in. She had seen Dr. Byrnes with the same issue & this is what he had his assistant do & it relieved her of the pain that she in now in & is having much difficulty walking. Dr. Sima could have done the same. Suzanne Korba

I have had 2 orthopedic procedures performed by Dr. Sima. Prior to seeing him I consulted 2 podiatrists and another orthopedic surgeon to treat my bilateral Hallux Rigidus on both great toes. Thankfully I declined the surgical fusion that all recommended. I tried "rocker shoes" and inserts but neither addressed the pain nor allowed me my preferred the activity level. After consulting with Dr. Sima he recommended implants on both great toes and I consider both surgeries a success.

I had a total hip replacement on April 19th, 2016 and by April 24th, I was up and about with the use of a cane. I am simply amazed at my rapid recovery and feel like Dr. Sima has given me a new lease on life.
