Patient Testimonials

Elizabeth J.

Dr. Simonet did my left hip replacement in 2015. They are still the best results I could have ever hoped for! Now I’m wondering about my right hip, hoping he will be available!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Simonet‘s 20 years or so.  Due to prednisone use to control colitis, the bones in my knees were damaged. My left knee was replaced 17 years ago and is still doing great. The right knee was replaced 5 years ago, and is also keeping up with good results. I’m currently dealing with a shoulder injury and have 100% confidence that Dr. Simonet will get me through this as well.

Dr. Simonet did my hip replacement five weeks ago and it couldn’t have gone any better. He has a great bedside manner, he answered all of my questions thoroughly prior to surgery, and everything went as I expected. His entire staff is great! They were very professional, especially his assistant Jane. Another thing to note is when you go back for a follow-up appointment, you are called in on-time and are not expected to wait. All in all, I would totally recommend Dr. Simonet!

Dr. Simonet did both my hips in November of 2014. Feeling absolutely great! Just wanted you to know that I’m participating in the YWCA Women’s Triathlon on August 11, 2019, Lake Nokomis. Swim 500 yards, bicycle 15 1/2 miles, do a 5 K (I walk very fast!). I’m so excited and so very thankful to you for your excellent work on me. Please pass this on to Casey and Jane too. They are wonderful! I’m certain I could never have done this without you. I was in a wheelchair! Ugh! I’ll send photos of the finish line.
