“I didn't actually see Dr. Thaxter. I was seen by his PA-C Long Her. My experience was really uneventful because everything went so well. I never had to wait an unreasonable amount of time at any point of my 4 visits for knee injections. Everyone was friendly, personable and truly seemed to enjoy their particular job. Long Her was very professional and gave me complete confidence in his knowledge and treatment. I couldn't have been more satisfied.”

“I only saw Dr. Dunklin briefly. He determined I did not qualify for surgery at this time so he was going to look into getting the shots in my leg. I got a call that my insurance company approved the three injections in my leg. I came in for the three shots and was seen each time by Courtney. She was very informative and also very people friendly. It was a pleasure coming into the office and seeing "friendly" people. The nurse was also very nice.”

“I came in to deal with significant knee pain and Kirk Johnson had previously suggested trying a cortisone shot if the pain continued. After just a couple of days after the shot the pain has subsided to where I have very little pain now. What a difference! Thanks!”

“Dr.Simons is always knowledgeable and professional. I was very pleased with the surgery and the results. I had a knee replacement done in July 2016. I would and have recommended Dr. Simons to others that are considering having the procedure done.”
– Paula S.
“From the initial consultation, to the follow up appointment thirty days after my hip replacement surgery, Dr. Simons and his entire staff treated me with the highest level of professional interaction and total concern for my well being. Dr. Simons answered all of my questions in a manner that me, as a layman, could understand and alleviate concerns, and trepidations that I had prior to the surgery. Surgery was not only a success, but recovery under Dr. Simons direction, was rather quick, and painless. Now I wish that I had not waited so long to meet the professional individuals who staff Sierra Pacific Orthopedic. I still have a six month follow up appointment, and probably another at the one year anniversary of my surgery. Look forward to seeing Dr.Simons and the staff .”

"I was in a serious motorcycle crash in 2015 where I sustained complete tears to both major tendons in my left shoulder as well as a dislocated bicep tendon in the same shoulder. Initially I was turned down for surgery by a different physician however my file eventually made it to Dr. Nuzzo's desk and after reviewing it he decided to take my case and operate on my shoulder. Throughout the process Dr. Nuzzo was very kind and professional. He explained exactly what the damage was, it's severity, the challenges he will face while working to correct it, and I will face in the rehabilitation process. He also explained some of his background and reassured he that he has seen similar traumas and that I was in good hands. Needless to say, I was very confident in his abilities. I had my surgery in April and fortunately Dr. Nuzzo was able to repair both major tears as well as the dislocated tendon. I have just completed physical therapy and I have regained most of the function in my left arm. There is still work to do, and I will continue to rehabilitate my arm on my own, but I do believe I will regain all of the function I lost after the accident.  I am grateful to Dr. Nuzzo for taking my case and to his staff for their professionalism and the quality of treatment they provided. I know my case was not an easy one.  I would certainly recommend the professionals at Sierra Orthopedic for anyone that is in need of orthopedic care. " – Steven P.
