Patient Reviews

“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 .”
