"I have had several opportunities to use the services of SCOI and each one has been quite successful. The latest visit endured for about a year and the doctor was Dr. Paul Simic. Wow, it was far beyond words that I can find to tell you how pleased I was with the kindness and consideration of his mannerism and care. He took care of my every whim personally such as; I had some fears about anesthesia and he had input with the young men who did the injection using Ultra Sound and I was greatly impressed with how smoothly everything went. His staff was equally caring and efficient in taking care of me. I felt like they modeled what Dr. Simic expects from those who take care of his patients. He is the kind of doctor I wish everyone could have because it gives the patient such peace going into surgery, to know just how intensely he cares. He should teach a class on patient-physician rapport. I will be back should I need your services again." – Elnora H.
