Thanks everyone for the feedback. I actually had an appointment and I rescheduled based on the feedback. Went to Dr. Frank Norberg he had great reviews. Feedback matters in getting the best quality care.

Do yourself a favor and skip over this guy! This guy will happily do your surgery and after it's over treat you like a drug addict. You are expected to be on pain meds for 4-6 weeks after a Total Hip Replacement and that's a fact. A week after surgery when we called for a refill of 5mg of Percocet he told my wife and I NO. We would have to fight this guy everytime to get a perscription filled. Needless to say i was off of the narcotic in 3 weeks vs the 4-6 which i definitely needed for rehab.
Dear Healthgrades Guest, We sincerely apologize for the experience you had with Dr. Simonet. Your feedback allows us an opportunity to review our processes and we would love the chance to discuss this matter further with you. If interested, please contact us directly at 952 847-4035. Sincerely, Twin Cities Orthopedics

I'm telling anyone considering having any kind of surgery with Dr. Simonet to reconsider, find a specialist which he is not. Dr. Simonet performed total shoulder replacement surgery on me and now you can consider me handicapped. I would never go through the TCO group for any kind of issue what so ever again. Do your self a favor and find a back, shoulder, knee specialist and not this hack.
