Sonia Simon, DPM was born and raised in Dallas Texas, and received her bachelors of biology degree from The University of Texas at Arlington. She received her masters in biomedical science from the University of North Texas Health Science Center. Dr. Simon became motivated to work in healthcare, having several family members who are devoted physicians.
Dr. Simon’s doctorate was earned in podiatric medicine and surgery at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, located in New York City. There she was involved in multiple organizations, holding various leadership positions. Being in school in New York, with clinical experience in Harlem, allowed her to see a gamut of pathologies while being exposed to a wide socioeconomic spectrum. There she realized the importance of clear communication and connecting with patients, being exposed to all of the situations people were in.
Her comprehensive 3-year foot and ankle surgical residency program was completed at St. Joseph Medical Center in Houston, where she received extensive surgical training in all aspects of the foot and ankle. She was involved in multiple research projects and presented at the American College of Foot and Ankle surgeons annual conference. Dr. Simon’s primary focus is in bunion treatment, hammer/claw toe, nerve-related care, heel pain, foot injuries, ingrown nails, fungal nails, routine diabetic care, wound care, ankle injuries, tendon injuries, skin conditions of the foot, and children’s foot care. All of those conditions make her the perfect addition to the physicians at Dallas Podiatry Works.
Dr. Simon’s association memberships include the American Podiatric Medical Association and the Texas Podiatric Medical Association.
Dr. Simon is married and with her husband she enjoys a wide array of what life has to offer: hiking, traveling, finding new restaurants and quality time with Maverick, her puppy. Dr. Simon is involved in her church and puts her heart into volunteering for those less fortunate through community foot screenings, food banks, clothing drives and more.
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
