Hey Doc, You Rock! Dr. Usman Qadeer

Congratulations to Usman Qadeer, MD, at Memorial Hospital for being a Doc Who Rocks!

A Rockin’ Doc is a physician who brings his or her best to Beacon Health System each day. Associates and colleagues nominated Dr. Qadeer for this distinction because he makes authentic and trustworthy personal connections to create moments that matter for patients, families and staff members. Here are some of the reasons why his Beacon team members thinks he rocks:

• Dr. Qadeer is very compassionate and caring. His bedside manner is impeccable; he puts his patients first and takes the time to listen and to help them understand their medical situation.

• Dr. Qadeer is always great about communicating with the Stroke Coordinators about the patients’ plan of care. He is a huge asset to our Stroke Program and to our community.

• He communicates well with nursing and is always open to questions so that nurses can better understand the patient’s medical condition. Dr. Qadeer is very dedicated to his profession and his patients — it shows in how he treats his patients and in how he treats the nursing staff.

• Dr. Qadeer responded immediately when we needed help communicating with a confused patient on our unit. In fact, I didn’t even have time to tell him the whole story over the phone before he said, “I’m on my way,” arriving on the unit within a minute. We are so lucky to have him on our team.

Thank you for your compassionate patient care and your commitment to your team, Dr. Qadeer! You’re a Rockin’ Doc!
