I can’t say enough good things about Doctor Simon. I had numbness and tingling in my left arm during the early height of the pandemic in April 2020. Doctor Simon was able to help expedite my MRI. He was an exceptional communicator. He ultimately did emergency surgery on my neck and the results have been superb. Post-op he was very available, helpful and supportive. I highly recommend Doctor Simon. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from H.L.D.)
