Podiatrist Luke Jeffries of Seymour was recently honored as Physician of the Year at Griffin Hospital’s 32nd Annual Nurses Week luncheon.
The Physician of the Year Award is based on voting by the hospital’s Nursing staff. In nominating Dr. Jeffries, nurses said he is a great patient advocate and is passionate about the care he provides, which makes patients feel confident and supported.
“He is a very calm, quiet and unassuming person, and is always that way with his patients and staff,” said Griffin Hospital Chief Medical Officer, Frederick Browne, MD, during the award presentation. “He is a strategic thinker and genuine. He takes time to address any questions or concerns with his patients, and is responsive to the Nursing staff and all fellow caregivers. He is truly committed to Griffin.”
