Best of the Bronx: 91-year-old doctor

A 91-year-old doctor in Parkchester has been treating patients in the Bronx for more than six decades.



Dr. Sidney Simon has been practicing for 65 years.



"He's the same as he was when I started here as a young girl," says his secretary, Jeannette, who's been working in the office for 59 years.



Simon's practice focuses primarily on allergies and immunology. He says he sees about 30 patients a week.



Simon went to P.S. 35, then NYU and eventually medical school in Philadelphia.



He's also a professor at NYIT.
