USF Health physicians celebrated by their patients on National Doctor’s Day

Not All Heroes Wear Capes

More than 1,700 patients sent uplifting notes to their USF Health doctors and staff for National Doctors’ Day on March 30. Now more than ever, the dedication of USF Health physicians, nurses, and other staff is being recognized.  Here are just a few of the uplifting responses we received:

Thank you to all the USF doctors and their medical staff for your perseverance and grit!  You are making a difference in these difficult times! 

They all genuinely care about my health and well-being. Without my doctors at USF Health I could not function to live a normal life. I also love that they answer my messages quickly, whether by MyChart or a phone call. They’re amazing!” 

Dr. Roetzheim is a kind, knowledgeable, compassionate and caring doctor who I have known for about 10 years. I chose Dr. Roetzheim as my doctor because I asked all the nurses at USF who they go to and many of them go to him. Nurses know who the best doctors are! deserves to be honored for his dedication and concern for his patients. Many thanks!

“I credit Dr. Fadi Matar for saving my life. He picked up a 90% widow maker block and fixed it fast, so I never experienced an actual heart attack. He is always there for me with any questions or problems, even answering email, evenings or weekends. Truly, he is a remarkable person and dedicated physician. One of USF’s best!

“Dr. Coris has provided me with ongoing excellent health advice and support over the years.  He has gone above the call of duty on several occasions in doing research about how my conditions can be mitigated or affected by my decisions. He has helped me overcome some challenges and helped me live a more well-balanced lifestyle. A great resource!

“Dr. Marchioni-Beery is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. She and her team have always cared for my whole person, making sure that I understand test results, am comfortable, and that I can reach her when necessary. I am truly blessed to be under her care. Thank you Dr. Marchioni-Beery and team!

“The team of Dr. McCaffrey and Dr. Van Loveren with their calming, knowledgeable open approach and their extensive experience with my condition brought peace and hope to a time that had terrorized my wife and I.”
