Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology

Dr.Simon is a great cardiologist.

Dr Marc Simon is very thorough, listens to my concerns and never makes me feel rushed.

My experience here at UPMC is so good I fly from Tampa Fl. to Pittsburgh because of the way I am treated

Dr. Marc Simon and the UPMC team probably saved my life.

I have been under the care of a cardiologist for close to 35 years and Dr. Marc Simon stands out as the best one ever. He thoroughly explains his interpretation the results of my echo and heart cath. Dr. Simon has helped me better manage my heart disease. His outpatient coordinator Cheryl is always available to answer questions. Great team.

Always the best service

Personable,Compasionet Sincere And knowledgeable ...I trust him whole heartedly

I love Dr. Simon, he always listens to me and gives me as much information as he can.

Since 2015 of May Dr. Marc Simon has been an excellent care provider for me and his staff has been outstanding with all my health needs. I truly recommend that all his entire office receive a healthy raise to meet the cost of living in Pennsylvania.

I have appreciated my many years under the care of Dr. Simon. He had become a very important part of my life, spending years getting to know my specific health condition, caring for me, and being the one to orchestrate the process of me having my open heart surgery at age 41. He became somewhat like a part of my family. My husband, children and I all knew that Dr. Simon would do his best taking care of me and that we could count on him.

my experience has been great each time I am at the office for an appointment

Dr. Simon is always on top of my condition and very knowledgeable as to how to treat my condition. He started me on new meds at my prior apt. and is always looking for new treatments to improve my condition. Even when he has a very busy schedule, he takes time to talk to me and listen without rushing through the appointment. I appreciate that.
