Dr. Simon couldn't help me, he referred me back to my surgeon. However, he was knowledgeable and pleasant.

I went to see Dr. Simon because I had been experiencing pain in my knee. Dr. Simon was prompt, efficient, and friendly. He thoroughly examined me and articulated his diagnosis in plain English. He offered several treatment options, and helpedme decide which one was best suited for me. I highly recommend Dr. Simon and will return if I have any sports-related injuries in the future.

Perfectly on time, professional and welcoming staff. Probably most pleasant approach a doctor has taken with me - thorough, asked unique questions to help diagnose the extent of my shoulder issue. Extensive exam to make sure nothing missedAND addressed other sports related concerns with me beyond the main reason for my visit. Without a doubt, I now have a "go-to" doc in NYC. I say this as I live in Texas, and work in NYC so its always a bit uneasy finding and seeing a new doc. This couldn't have been better or easier.

I had the first appointment in the morning and there was no wait. Dr. Simon was very nice and warm. Some doctors are very "medical" and don't have good social skills, he was not like that at all. He asked ifI had any questions. Will see if my problems reside after I follow his instructions.
