I saw Dr. Simon today. He asked all relevant questions and did series of tests (none of which the Neurologist or Physiologist in Stamford had done when I saw each of them separately last year.) He is an excellent listener and provides substantive insights. While my issues appear to be systemic and not directly spine related, I highly recommend him based on his thoroughness, professionalism and taking the time to listen with care. (5 Star review on Healthgrades from  55 year old patient from Ridgefield, CT
