Treating patients, not just their disease, is what you excel at, and your patients appreciate the kindness you have dispensed along with your medical care
Suffern, NY (PRWEB) April 2, 2011
Heart patients in the Lower Hudson Valley have recognized Good Samaritan Hospital's Cary L. Hirsch, M.D., F.A.C.C as one of America's Most Compassionate Doctors, and have voted him a coveted Patients' Choice Award for 2011. Patients' Choice Awards are based on reviews written by hundreds of thousands of patients across the country, and are awarded to fewer than 3% of the 720,000 active practicing physicians in the United States. The awards are administered by MDx Medical, Inc.
"Treating patients, not just their disease, is what you excel at, and your patients appreciate the kindness you have dispensed along with your medical care," noted Erika Boyer, Vice President of Consumer Research at MDx Medical in her Award citation to Dr. Hirsch.
Dr. Hirsch is a world-renowned interventional cardiologist who is Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at the Active International Cardiovascular Institute at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, N.Y. A former Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ, he is one of the most respected interventional cardiologists in the country, having been named "America's Top Physician - Interventional Cardiology" by the Consumer's Research Council of America. Board certified in interventional cardiology, cardiology and internal medicine, Dr. Hirsch practices as a member of the Bon Secours Medical Group in Suffern, N.Y.
Patients and their families often express their gratitude to Dr. Hirsch. His skill as a physician has saved many loved ones in the Lower Hudson Valley. One of his thankful patients recalls, "Dr. Hirsch saved my life! In the middle of the night when I was having a heart attack, he put in two stents, and calmed my family. Any question you ask, he has the answer! I loved his bedside manner." This patient, like countless others, wholeheartedly recommends Dr. Hirsch and Good Samaritan Hospital to others with heart issues.
Dr. Hirsch spearheads a number of initiatives within the Active International Cardiovascular Institute at Good Samaritan Hospital's cardiac catheterization lab and as the Director of Clinical Trials. Clinical trials are the drivers of today's evidence-based medicine, and the method by which medical advances are realized and validated. To date, Dr. Hirsch has led or participated in 28 such clinical trials.
