Patient Reviews

“How do you describe getting your life back. From an MRI with another doctor I was told I suffered from sciatica and healing would take a long time. I gave it time then saw Dr. Simons for a second opinion only to find out I had no hips, I was bone on bone. He got me in for my first complete hip replacement in 3 weeks due to the severity. My next surgery was scheduled for a week after I was to return to work. I explained to his assistant Alicia how I was only allowed so much time off work and a person who was retiring was covering for me, she talked to Dr. Simons and they came in to let me know my surgery date had been moved up. Dr. Simons changed his Christmas vacation plans to come in and perform my second surgery. I have never been so blessed and thank the Lord every day for Dr. Simons giving me back a quality life. Walking is an amazing gift and I am forever grateful.”
