Thanking Our Doctors on National Doctors’ Day!

Posted by

“At Martin’s Point we consistently recognize and value the work of our doctors, because we believe that honoring their efforts leads to trusting relationships and a healthier community,” said Dr. Jonathan Harvey, Chief Medical Officer. “Thank you to all of the great doctors at Martin’s Point.  On Doctors’ Day and every day, it’s a pleasure to work with you.”

National Doctors’ Day, celebrated in a number of countries across the globe, pays tribute to the contributions of physicians to the health and well-being of individuals and their greater communities. In the US, we honor physicians annually on March 30 to commemorate the date in 1842 when general anesthesia was first used on a surgery patient. The first Doctors’ Day observance in the US was a private event held in 1933 in Winder, Georgia to honor local physicians. The tradition slowly grew and the day was celebrated regionally until 1990 when President George H. W. Bush designated Doctors’ Day as a national holiday.

On this 2018 celebration of National Doctors’ Day, we would like to recognize the exceptional work of Martin’s Point Health Care physicians. Your tireless dedication to improving the health of our community, one patient at a time, is acknowledged and appreciated. Thank you—for sharing your skill, your experience, your empathy, and your energy with our patients. They, their families, and our greater community are the better for it!

  1. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Brad Huot. He is truly a caring, attentive doctor who listens and never minimizes or dismisses how I am feeling. He has a great sense of humor and I always leave feeling better than when I went in! I’m am 61-years-old and have had several experiences with physicians over the years and I can honestly say he is one of the best in his field. My husband, who is also a patient of Dr. Huot, concurs that he is “top man”. Thank you Dr. Huot and to all the healthcare providers, the lab, the pharmacy and the office staff for your kindness and courtesy. My experience with the Martin’s Point at the Portland facility has always been positive! I highly recommend Martin’s Point!
