Gold DOC List


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.

Grateful patients recognized the healthcare professionals below as Gold DOCs, those who demonstrate exemplary skill, sensitivity and compassion.

Want to add your own healthcare professional to this list?  Learn more about our Gold DOC program and fill out a Gold DOC recommendation form.  Our Foundation will thank 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.
