Dr. Clifford J Simon has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Very Knowledgeable Doctor
Self-verified patient of Dr. Clifford J Simon - Posted on April 18th, 2013
Dr. Simon was very knowledgeable and courteous during when I was ill from alergy/bateria related illness of my lungs. He had diagnosed it correctly that it wasn't TB (although other doctors thought so). Two years later from that initial emergency room visit at Englewood Hospital, I am healthier than I have ever been. Thank you Dr. Simon!
Clifford Simon, MD-- a real find!

Dr. Simon really cares. He was my wife's doctor first, so when I needed a pulmonologist, there was no question. My diagnosis was lung cancer-- not a happy one, but I feel totally confident with him. So far I'm doing extraordinarily well (and I think he's about as glad of that as we are), but I know he'll be there for me when the situation changes. We'd recommend him unreservedly.
