On Monday, March 30, physicians across the country will be honored during National Doctors' Day, a day set aside to celebrate the exceptional care, expert guidance, and dedication that physicians offer patients every day.  Four years ago, the Upstate Foundation realized the importance of recognizing our own Upstate doctors on Doctors' Day and created a program that celebrates their excellence.  In honor of National Doctors' Day and in recognition of the extraordinary care provided by Upstate physicians, on Tuesday, March 24 and Wednesday, March 25, the Upstate Foundation will deliver testimonials sent in by grateful patients and families. The doctors recognized will also receive a certificate of achievement.
