Dr. Suna Mahasin Qasim has repeatedly been recognized as one of America’s Most Compassionate Doctors!  The following are excerpts from letters from the Consumer Research Department of MDX Medical, Inc., detailing this honor:

Dear Dr. Qasim:

Congratulations!  You have once again been recognized as one of America’s Most Compassionate Doctors.

Treating patients, not just the disease, is what you excel at, and your patients appreciate the kindness you have dispensed along with your medical care.

This award is based on reviews written by hundreds of thousands of patients.  While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few receive praise about the compassion that accompanied their care.  In fact, of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than 3% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

The Compassionate Doctor certification is part of Patients’ Choice recognition program, where patients rate and vote for their favorite doctors.

Congratulations once again on this outstanding distinction.
