“I was treated by Dr. Simic for a fractured left arm due to a fall. I can't say enough great things about SCOI. My surgery experience at SCOI and Dr. Simic couldn't have been different. Everyone was caring and compassionate. I didn't feel like a member of a herd but rather an individual. My follow-up appointments with Dr. Simic have also been a great experience. His assistant Jordan is fabulous. When you are injured you are vulnerable. SCOI makes you feel safe and secure. Can't say enough good things about everyone at SCOI.”
