By on 5/26/2017

Griffin Hospital Pulmonary Care Physician Roman Spivak, MD, FCCP, of Shelton, was recently honored as Physician of the Year at Griffin Hospital’s 31st Annual Nurses Week luncheon.

The Physician of the Year Award is based on voting by the hospital’s Nursing staff. In nominating Dr. Spivak, nurses admired and appreciated his ability to gain the trust of patients and their families with his caring and compassionate bedside manner. He is considered a great role model for the hospital’s resident physicians, especially in the intricacies of critical care, and nurses highlighted how Dr. Spivak gained their respect by actively including them in patient rounding and in discussions about patient care plans.

“He gets to know each patient’s story and treats everyone like family,” said Vice President of Patient Care Barbara Stumpo during the celebration. “He is a voice of reason for families and patients when they are in end-of-life situations and always lends a kind and empathetic ear.”
