Holzer has initiated a program to recognize outstanding physicians within our health system. Patient feedback is gathered at each location regarding the service our physicians are providing for the communities. Patients and family members are encouraged to submit feedback on their physicians and the type of care they are receiving. One physician is selected quarterly who meets standards for quality, care, service, stewardship, teamwork, and provides a helpful and caring attitude.
For Fall Quarter 2016, Nabil Fahmy, MD, PhD, Holzer Internal Medicine, has been selected as the winner of the award. A patient of Dr. Fahmy stated the following: “I was not feeling well for days, and you not only worked me in, but stayed late to read my reports and called me after hours on a Friday night to check on me. You, I believe, have gone above and beyond to make sure your patients are ok. I just want to recognize you as a Super Doc. Thank you and God Bless you.”
Dr. Fahmy completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Mt. Carmel Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio, and is Board Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He joined Holzer in October 1994.
Dr. Fahmy sees patients at the Holzer Gallipolis location. For more information on the services provided at Holzer, visit www.holzer.org or call 1-855-4-HOLZER.
