I absolutely loved Dr Simon, I am going to make my Mother start using him for her cardiologist. If I ever need ongoing cardiology care he will be the Dr for me! He took his time, explained things in an understanding way and made me feel better about a scary situation! I give him 100 out of 10 for being an amazing Dr. I only wish ALL UPMC Dr's were as thorough and professional
