Specialties

Dr. Simon K Lo has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

One Star

I had a very serious condition that required Dr. Lo's expertise. He was out of town at the time & I was given an appt. for 21/2 months later. 2 weeks later I was back in hospital and Dr. Lo had just flown in- he stayed til midnight operating on me and keep checking on me in recovery multiple times. Great surgeon and human being totally dedicated to his work!

Best Doctor for rare Pancreatic conditions

He is top in his field, both an innovator and leader. After 2 years of pancreatic attacks, he diagnosed and significantly reduced the occurrence of these attacks. When I had lost all hope, he was my angel. He also likely found the root cause through genetic testing, whereas others were unable. God bless you Dr. Lo.

Not pleased with this doctor at all

My husband was being treated by him. I had questions and he totally dismissed me. He was eager to do surgery on my husband and almost did a procedure that my husband expressly did not want to have. Fortunately, he checked the paperwork prior to the procedure. He's one of those doctors who has a "God" complex. His associates were far better that Dr. Lo.

Dr. Lo and his Staff were amazing!!! Thou, Dr. Lo doesn't spend a lot of time with his patients after surgery, his staff more than makes up for it. They came to my daughters room 3-4 times a day and kept Dr. Lo informed about patient's condition. His diagnosis was spot on and my daughter had immediate pain relief right after the surgery. His has put an end to over 2 years of my daughter's pain!!! Thank you Dr. Lo!!!
