Arnold P. Gold Foundation recognizes ECMC’s Dr. Neil Dashkoff with “Gold DOC” Award
BUFFALO, NEW YORK; March 12, 2013 - The Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) Corporation recently received notification from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation that ECMC Cardiac Catheterization Director Neil Dashkoff, MD, is being recognized by the Foundation with a "Gold DOC" award.
The Gold Foundation established this recognition to give patients and their family members the opportunity publicly to pay tribute to physicians when they feel the care they have received demonstrates exemplary skill, sensitivity and compassion.
Promoting the vital importance of humanistic medical practice is central to the mission of the Gold Foundation. The Gold Foundation guides patients and their caregivers to seek, and be able to identify, exemplars of compassionate care as well as clinical excellence.
The humanistic doctor (Gold DOC) demonstrates a variety of attributes including: integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect, empathy and service. When practiced, humanism in medicine fosters relationships with patients and other caregivers that are compassionate and empathic. It also describes attitudes and behaviors that are sensitive to the values, autonomy, cultural and ethnic backgrounds of others.
