Gold DOC

Gold DOC certificate

Having a doctor who is respectful, compassionate and an effective communicator is good for your health.  That’s why The Arnold P. Gold Foundation works to restore caring to every healthcare experience.

If your doctor — or other healthcare professional — is both clinically excellent and compassionate, celebrate their exceptional care through our Gold DOC program.

When you recommend your Gold DOC, our Foundation thanks them in your name with a congratulatory letter, a framed Gold DOC certificate and a Humanism in Medicine lapel pin. Gold DOCs tell us that this patient tribute is the most meaningful and moving recognition they receive.

To have your doctor recognized, please fill out our Gold DOC Recommendation Form.

Please contact Kerry Ford, Associate Director of Development, at with any questions.
