This superior care is certainly evident in the 171 members of GBMC’s medical staff who were recognized in Baltimore magazine’s 2013 Top Doctor’s list, which also demonstrates just how good they are since the award comes from the votes of their peers.
And, last week we heard from patients who were very grateful for the coordination of care they received from their primary care physicians, Drs. Gregory Small and Nishi Das, and how the simple act of managing a person’s chronic health condition and providing them with a healthier, better quality of life, makes a world of difference. We are very fortunate to have a medical staff comprised of not only the best doctors in their fields, but doctors who dedicate their time, and their lives, to the care of people. So, in tribute to our physicians, I thought it fitting that we hear what our patients had to say, many of whom gave thanks throughout the year in our Foundation’s Gifts of Gratitude campaign for the care received from a GBMC physician:
“Dr. William McConnell is very kind, considerate and caring. He is always available when you need him.”
“Dr. Marshall Levine is so very special to me and my family.”
“I am fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Joseph Califano. He is a most caring and fine surgeon and a grand person.”
“Drs. Lauren Schnaper and Sheri Slezak and their staff saved my life. They made me feel like I could make it and their skills made it true. I am forever grateful.”
“Dr. Geoffrey Neuner is a special doctor whose love of life and people shines through him in so many ways. I am here today because he cares.”
“Dr. Teresa Nguyen is fantastic! She takes the time to get to know the children and their families. We adore her!”
“I am 86 and walk pain free thanks to Dr. Victor Tritto.”
“Dr. Thomas Guarnieri (cardiology)- For your care and wisdom, I thank you! Your referral last summer has resulted in a vast improvement in quality of life.”
“I thank Dr. Kenneth Greene for his monthly medical updates and quick response to questions sent via email.”
“Thank you to Dr. Carter Freiburg, my vascular surgeon. He was so knowledgeable and caring and kind to me when I had my surgery. I rate him as a “10.”
From the surgeons and hospitalists to the ED physicians, primary care doctors and specialists all throughout GBMC, thank you for caring for patients and families from every walk of life, through all types of illnesses and injuries, and for helping GBMC move toward our vision: To every patient, every time, we will provide the care that we would want for our own loved ones.
In honor of Doctor’s Day and your physician, please share your thoughts and inspiring stories of patient care here…
