Patient Reviews ? Write a Review
I love this Dr. I went to him after misdiagnosis and treatment by Doctors working with the City of Redondo. I could barely walk when I first saw him. He got me back to a 2:42 marathon. Then I was being treated for a shoulder injury by an orthopedic and that too was treated by Dr Simon who realised it was a bicep injury. He will always be my hero.
I was in terrible pain for months and saw numerous chiropractors until Dr. Simon immediately diagnosed my condition.....After MRI and conformation, I went ahead with an epidural injection.......OMG! I was 99% cured, went 5 weeks later, for another injection ............and I was brand spanking new again!! I really want to say that this Doctor saved my life....
Awesome doctor, awesome staff. I totally disagree with some of these reviews. I had an injection, after seeing another pain management doc without any relief, Dr. Simon changed my life by taking away my pain. I would definitely recommend seeing Dr. Simon!
Failed neck fusion and I was looking at another surgery. Dr. Simon suggested an injection at a precise location with a facet injection. I went from very limited range of motion to almost complete following the injections. Yes, he can be gruff, but I put him up there with the best.
I totally disagree with these bad reviews. I saw Dr. Simon after seeing 2 other doctors for epidural injections with no relief. Dr. Simon told me an epidural would not help my pain, but that I needed a facet injection. After the injection, 90% of my pain resolved. Dr. Simon was patient and compassionate to my needs, he answered all my questions. He even called me the next day to see how I was feeling. I would recommend him without any reservations!!!
I too disagree with the negative reviews above. I seldom write reviews for anything, but Dr. Simon has been fantastic, extremely competent and has correctly diagnosed and treated my pain.
Please DON"T go to this doctor! He is all the negative things you have read about him. My ortho referred me to him for pain management. I advised his staff of this when I phoned to make the appointment, and the medications that my surgeon had me on. I was told, "no problem." When I arrived for my appointment, he came in so rudely, looked at my Mri disc, and sid, "there is nothing wrong with you, Im the shot guy, I don't prescribe medications." Well, I just underwent major back surgery. He was all too happy to charge me $300, for his 5 minutes of miserable time. He ddn't do a thing for that money, not 5 cents worth. I only marked 1 star, as you must mark something. he is minus 5 stars, and has the bedside manner of a hyena
great doctor and service
IF YOU LIKE DOCTOS THAT ARE ARROGANT,ABRASIVE AND ABSOLUTLY INTO THIERSELF THIS IS THE DOCTOR FOR YOU. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE SIMON.I HAVE AN EXTREMLY BAD BACK AND I ALSO HAVE TRIGGER FINGHERS AND BAD KNEES HAVE BAD ARTRITIS.IN THEM .OH I DIDN'T METION SCATIA THAT GOES DOWN BOTH MY LEGS AND IT IS VERY PAINFUL. THEY STAFF DIDN'T SEEM HAPPY. AFTER ABOUT 1HR HE CAME IN WITH HIS SCURBS BUT NO SHOES WHAT'S UP WITH THAT AFTER LOOKING AT ALL MY FILMS HE SAID THERE REAY DIDN'T SEE A PROBLEM. IHAVE BEEN TO SO MANY ORTHO AND ARTHRITIS DOCTORS. IWAS SO FRUSTED WITH THIS DOCTOR, I WOULD'T SEND MY WORST ENEMY TO HIM I DID FIND A DOCTOR THAT HAS ME ON A PROGRAM AND MY PAIN IS SOME WHAT UNDER CONTROL. I GET STERIOD SHOTS IN MY BACK NOW. BUT DR. SIMON WOULDN'T ADDRESS ANY OF MY PROBLEMS. AND IF ANYONE OUT THER GOES TO HIMCOULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT WAS UP WITH THE NO SHOES?
Would have saved me a surgery if I had seen him before having a fusion on my neck. Showed me the films and diagnosed the problem. Great doctor.
I have been to Dr. Simon a few times over the years. He is the best one I know for dealing with my pain, and my treatment by him helped everytime.
My visit to Dr. Simon's office was one of the worst Dr. visits I have ever had! He keep me waiting for more than an hour. He seems to have an over exaggerated sense of importance. He didn't want to listen to anything I said. When I got another opinion, I found out his diagnosis was incorrect. Going to his office was a huge waste of time. I'm happy to have this opportunity to warn others.
He is the doctor to go to when others cannot find the source of your pain. Had I seen him first, I could have avoided a major surgery.
I have seen Dr. twice for injections and always for a follow-up visit. I must diasagee with most of the comments posted on this sight. I have found Dr.Simon to be prompt, through and I have had excellent results. He was referred to me by my orthoped.Who is one of the most respected Doctor's in the area
I work in medicine and was referred to him by a lawyer after a car accident case. His recommendations were based on profit and not patient benefit. Needless to say I was disappointed.
I saw Dr SImon for my back pain and had 2 injections. I am pain free now and back to all normal activities as before my injury. He really helped me so much
He is arrogant, self-absorbed and kept me waiting for almost an hour. Plus his final diagnosis was wrong.
This guy is a total joke. He is rude, not to mention arrogant. I would not refer my worst enemy to him. How he maintains a medical license is a mystery to me. He has been on probation by the American Medical Board for the most disgusting reasons. I walked out of his office and will never return. How can a Doctor be SO BAD!!!
Wonderful Doctor, highly skilled. Delivered several epidural injections. Very good at diagnosing my condition and delivering effective care. Took the time to explain condition and how to treat. I have all the confidence in the world when it comes to Dr Simon.
I have never encountered a more discourteous, unsympathetic staff in my entire life. He treated me once in his surgery center and failed to tell me the pure agony I was expected to endure for two days following the first procedure. Nevertheless I showed up at the second procedure (of 3) two weeks later at 6am and was told simply and coldy by the receiptionist that I was not on the schedule. A call to their office went to a message machine and they failed to follow up with me or call me back. When I contacted them to discuss the matter, I was blamed for the calendar error and no offer to reschedule was ever offered. Try to stay away from this practice. There are other qualified physicians in this area able to do the same procedure.
poor bedside manner. lack of focus. non-empathetic.
