Describe how your Nominee has exceeded his or her Job Description, becoming a hero to you or others. Provide an example or as much detail as possible of the things that they do that go above and beyond their job description.
Besides juggling a busy-full time schedule in her office, rounding at several hospitals and SNF's, Dr. Hsu also works as the executive medical director for Optimal Hospice. Her compassion and patience for all her patients is heartwarming. I recently went to her office and witnessed first hand her soft-spoken demeanor with her patients. One patient, in particular, was in a crisis mode with their family and Dr. Hsu was gentle, compassionate and took her time listening to the situation and diffused all fear from the patient and family. She never rushes her patients and treats them as her own family members. It is always great working with a physician who will put her patient first and always do what is best for that patient and family. Thank YOu, Dr. Hsu, for all your wonderful service in our healthcare community.
