Verified Patient Rating: 5 (108 patient reviews and ratings)
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Simons.
  • “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. ”

  • “Excellent appointment, it was a follow up to a previous treatment. Gel-1 injections went well and his thoughts about future treatments were positive. He is supportive of other alternatives, such as surgical treatments, but for now this treatment is going better than expected. Dr. Simons is very knowledgeable about newer methods but still realistic about what is possible for future treatments.”

  • “Dr. Lamour referred me to Dr. Simons for a knee replacement. I had not seen him before and was a bit anxious, but Dr. Lamour assured me he was a wonderful Doctor. Dr. Lamour's office assistant walked me over to Dr. Simons' office to make an appointment. Because I was in so much pain, they worked me into their schedule the next week. Their care and concern was unusual and impressive. As soon as I met Dr. Simons I felt assured and confident in his skills and knowledge. He is kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. Due to the medication I was on, he needed to wait 6 weeks before he could do the surgery. All of the staff at Sierra (offices, radiology, lab, etc.) were compassionate, friendly and efficient. In 6 weeks I had my surgery at Fresno Surgery Center. Everything went well and I have had no post op complications from the surgery. My knee functions well and, best of all, the pain is completely gone. I would definitely refer a friend to Dr. Simons, Dr. Lamour and Sierra Pacific Orthopedics. Fresno is fortunate to have such a high-quality orthopedic group available locally. ”

  • “I have been going to Sierra Pacific Orthopedics off and on over the last 18 years – two knee replacements and rotator cuff. Can not say enough great things about Sierra Pacific Orthopedics. Previous doctor was Eric Hansen, my new doctor for the procedure I now need will be Dr. Simons. Both very personable individuals, professional and I know will be the right doctor for my next surgery. God Bless.”

  • “I had a knee replacement and now can walk without pain. Dr. Simons is the one I would recommend to everyone. Surgery was cut and dried. The PT was hard in the beginning, but as I continued, it got better. Without it, recovery would've been much longer.”

  • “I had confidence in Dr. Simons from the moment I met him. He is everything you look for in a physician. He is kind, listens to you, super knowledgeable, and a football fan. The surgery went just as expected. I was home the third day after surgery. I needed little pain medication. The recovery was simple. I did the physical therapy recommended for me at home. I have total movement of my knee and absolutely no residual pain. I walked with a walker for over a year prior to surgery and now I walk with no devices. I owe all of this to Dr. Simons. He is a remarkable physician and I recommend him to anyone.”

  • “Dr. Simmons was honest with me and has done everything possible to make me feel better. The staff has been very pleasant and friendly. I have been happier coming here than anywhere else. Even though I will never be normal again, I wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you all for treating like a human being.”

  • “Dr. Simons was actually a second opinion for me. He was polite and met me personally at both appointments. He not only explained in detail what was wrong with my knee, he pulled up the pictures and explained what was happening. I am very grateful and made an educated, informed decision to proceed with my surgery.”

  • “Dr Simons did a hip replacement on me in March. He did a excellent job. I have not had any problems with my hip even though he didn't have much to work with since my bone density is real low. I highly recommend Dr Simons to anyone who need any type of surgery. His bed side manner was also great..”

  • “I have only met Dr. Simons once when he determined via x-rays that I needed to have surgery to fix my existing knee replacement. Dr. Simons was thorough in explaining what and why I needed to have the surgery. I have also received daily updates via e-mail to prepare me for my surgery. All staff I have dealt with at SPOC have been courteous and helpful. Thus far my experience has been very good.”

  • “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.”

  • “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 .”
