“I had some high expectations. SPOC and Dr Simons exceeded them.  First, SPOC runs like a well-oiled machine. And does so without seeming impersonal. I appreciate that just about everything I needed, from imaging to labs, was right there. Billing went wonderfully. Office staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Just easygoing and good people without a hint of disingenuousness  Then to Dr Simons. Matter of fact. Blunt. Knowledgeable. Trustworthy. Seems like he has no ego but there is a large undercurrent of compassion and heart.  My operation was today. In the past six hours my knee has felt better than in the last twenty years. ”
