Your Words Matter

The patient-doctor relationship lies at the heart of medicine. Their greatest honor comes from you:

“It means so much to me when my patients take time from their busy lives to reflect on the care I have provided them and show their appreciation. The gratitude I receive from them makes me feel energized on the toughest days and validates the personal sacrifices I have made in order to provide quality care for my patients.”
Afreen Tariq-Fazili, MD FACOG, Senior Partner, Greece OB/GYN LLP

“There is no more sincere thank you than the gratitude that comes from patients and their families. It has been the emotional “pay” for the stress of managing emergencies day and night and the reason I fell in love with my profession.”
-  Farhad Abtahian, MD-PhD, Director Cardiac Catheterization Lab, Rochester General Hospital

“There is no better feeling than when a patient or family member takes the time to share a heartfelt message of gratitude. I went into the medical field to help improve the lives of others, and knowing that I’ve made a difference to someone during a difficult time means the world to me.” 
M. Gordon Whitbeck, Jr., MD, Chairman of Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Rochester General Hospital

"Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity."

- Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine
