Mountain Laurel Award Recipients
Reading Hospital's first Mountain Laurel Award was presented to Dr. Michael Brown. From the nomination form:
"A suspicious finding on a routine mammogram lead to a consultation with Dr. Michael Brown about next steps in addressing the concern. Dr. Brown met with me within a few days and provided his best recommendations for next steps. He expedited my biopsy, communicated subsequent results and ordered further testing which ended in a diagnosis of breast cancer. Dr. Brown's compassion in delivering this news, along with his skillful and articulate way of explaining the expected approach to treatment was done with grace and intelligence. I felt comfortable and assured he would do everything possible to treat this diagnosis with the most beneficial care plan that works for me and my family. His communication style is thorough and warm - he makes himself available at anytime for questions and concerns. I feel that Dr. Brown is 110% invested in my health and well-being. I feel very fortunate to be cared for by Dr. Brown."
