Pine Run Celebrates
Our Rockin’ Docs! Doctors’ Day is observed on March 30, the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. Pine Run paid tribute to our healing heroes with a confection of red carnations—reimagined as ice cream sundaes—along with scrumptious red velvet cake and a tiered tray of creamy cupcakes. Complimentary tickets to the 2018 Designer House were also included in the festive offerings for the physicians.
Red carnations, the symbolic flower of courage and sacrifice, were presented by Business Development Director Vicki Bosler to several physicians rounding at Pine Run’s Health Center. She thanked them for bringing their special brand of care and dignity to the residents at Pine Run.
When the physicians were asked to comment on the rewards of their day-to-day work, they offered the following reflections:
Medical Director Nicole Geracimos, MD, enthused about her role at Pine Run when she stated, “The path to becoming a physician is a difficult one, but it is such a privilege to take care of patients in their time of need. That sentiment grounds me every day.”
“The sweetest part of my practice is my love of patients, doctors, and other providers,” enthused Dr. Diana Shaw. “I was one of the older students in medical school at a time when Women’s Health was emerging as a new exciting specialty.”
Dr. Bohdan Martynec’s eyes filled up when he recalled a long ago memory of “a lady with emerald green eyes in her 90’s” who influenced his career path toward geriatrics when he was a summer orderly at Rochester General Hospital in New York.
“The best part about being a physician is helping patients get better through a difficult time,” was the sentiment expressed by Dr. Michael Tramontana, a provider with Tandigm at Pine Run.
