National Doctor’s Day is March 30

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – We trust our physicians not only to diagnose and heal, but to inspire and educate. Wednesday, March 30 is National Doctor’s Day, and the opportunity to recognize an excellent healthcare provider for WVU Healthcare is just a click away.

National Doctor’s Day gives patients a chance to show their appreciation for their physicians’ role in caring for the sick and advancing the art and science of medicine. 2011 marks the sixth annual observance of Doctor’s Day at WVU.

Since the yearly celebrations began in 2006, WVU physicians have received hundreds of messages of gratitude and appreciation from current and former patients. Many patients have also chosen to make a tax-deductible gift in a special physician’s honor.

To submit your message or make a gift visit Doctor’s Day brochures containing submission forms are also located throughout WVU Hospitals and clinics and at participating area pharmacies.

Each honored physician will receive a certificate including the patient’s written expression of appreciation and will be recognized at WVU’s Doctor’s Day celebration.
