Hey Doc, You Rock! Dr. Jay Patel at Memorial



Congratulations to Dr. Jay Patel, cardiothoracic surgeon 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. Patel 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 think Dr. Patel rocks:

• When he’s with patients and their families, Dr. Patel spends as much time as he can to explain what’s going on with detail and honesty. He listens to them intently and answers their questions to help set them at ease.
• Dr. Patel communicates with staff and trusts their input. He includes staff in his judgments and assessments.
• Whenever staff have to page or speak face-to-face with Dr. Patel, regardless of the time, he never sounds irritated or in a rush.
• Jay is a very nice person to work with and treats his patients with respect. He is always positive and he is the rock of his team.

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