Patient ReviewsRESULT OF OUR EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT

Dr. Simonson was wonderful! He spent time with me and answered my questions freely and honestly in a way that I could understand. He wasn’t impatient or condescending and didn’t propose surgery as the first option. I’d very highly recommend him, especially after my impression of the prior podiatrist I’d seen.

Wonderful experience! Everyone we encountered was so very kind and helpful. Dr. Richardson explained what had happened, visually showed us through X-rays, and made my daughter feel very comfortable as he put on her cast. This was our second experience that brought us back needing his service. I have full faith and confidence in his abilities and put my trust for my families needs in his care. Should we ever be in another situation that needs help, this office and Dr. Richardson is whom we would trust.

Dr. Simonson is by far the best foot and ankle physician I have ever encountered. I have had 5 operations on my ankle, due to an injury that occurred from a serious car accident. Because of the severity of the injury and the resulting arthritis and pain, I have been to see many different specialist to get help for my chronic pain and stiffness. My experiences were not bad, but the results of the previous procedures were never as good as I hoped for. Many doctors treat you as just another case, and lack the personal touch of their specialty. I believe what makes a great physician is one who can sympathize with what the patient is going through, and communicate well enough to try and come to a conclusion that best suits the patients needs. Many doctors I saw would take a brief look at my ankle and tell me how bad it was. I was always leave appointments feeling discouraged and hopeless. When I saw Dr. Simonson I did not have that experience. He was outstanding. He was very personal, and took the time to evaluate how this “bad ankle” of mine was effecting my life. He was sympathetic and kind. He took time to listen to my concerns and wishes. He gave me his outlook and medical advice and was so optimistic in his approach. I was so impressed with him that I canceled a scheduled surgery at Mayo Clinic to go with this local Doctor. After I did so, I discussed my decision with many people that I work with as well as my close friends. Every time I mentioned Dr. Simonson’s name to people I only heard positive feed back. People told me things like; “he’s the best, a perfectionist, too good for this small town”. Those are the kinds of things that set me at ease. I am 31 years old and had a Total Ankle Replacement and I can’t tell you how full of joy I am to know that I got the BEST care, and will be able to walk without pain or a limp. Dr. Simonson did an outstanding job, and the nurses that were in the operating room told me that he worked hard until he got a perfect result. I have never been so happy with a Physician, or medical decision in my life. Dr. Simonson’s amazing attention to detail, and outstanding medical care has made my life a thousand times better. I believe that Prescott is so lucky to have such an outstanding Surgeon here, and I wish him the best in his career here in Prescott.

The whole experience was very satisfactory! From the time I entered the office every went very smoothly: I was seated in an exam room within 5 minutes of entering the office, had several X-rays taken, met with the doctor who explained the X-ray results and their ramifications, and received treatment for my shoulder pain within 35 minutes. A very pleasant experience, considering the circumstances!

My experience with Dr. Simonson is always great. He is upbeat, knowledgeable and knows how to treat my problem. I recommend him to all my friends, neighbors and acquaintances who have feet issues and need treatment. They are always pleased.

My experience with Granite Orthopedics has been wonderful. From Dr. Richardson to the entire staff, both on the medical and the rehab side, the service and care has been top notch. I would recommend Dr. Richardson to anyone requiring shoulder surgery.

On Saturday 12/26 I twisted my ankle, lost my bearings, fell and broke my right-hand little finger. I went to the ER and they put a splint on my hand. The following Monday my husband called Dr. Richardson’s office because he was recommended by the ER, and we made an appointment for 12/31. Dr. Richardson scheduled me for surgery on 1/7. I am grateful that I was able to be scheduled that soon.When Dr. Richardson removed the pins via the exterior of my hand on 2/8, I suppose I should have taken a pain pill in advance. After enduring much pain during the removal of the first two pins, I asked for some sort of cushion to be placed under my cupped hand so I could bear down on that support while he removed the third and final pin, and it helped that he then placed a roll of gauze under my hand. That would be my only suggestion to him when helping future patients with a similar situation.Overall, I felt complete confidence in his skill and attention to detail, and I felt that he is very caring and professional.
